ABSTRACT
The article comments on government regulations and legal issues surrounding the issue of nuclear power in the U.S. in 1979. Key issues discussed include efforts by the anti-nuclear movement to slow down the development of nuclear energy through legal avenues, as well as the need for electric utilities to deal with complex regulations from state public-service, environmental and other agencies before they can push through with the construction of nuclear power plants.
