Vermont Senate and that Nuclear Power Plant/Entergy decision.
"In the NRC's own regulations it says that a state can decide whether it wants a reactor to operate within its boundaries based on economics, as long as it doesn't involve safety," Katz said. "Entergy in its memorandum of understanding agreed to abide by all legislative decisions. It is not in a very good position."
In 1989, a local referendum closed down the Rancho Seco reactor near Sacramento because of frequent outages and high electric rates. Prior to that, the Supreme Court had affirmed the jurisdiction of the NRC over the safety of radioactive emissions from nuclear plants, but it had also upheld the rights of states to make decisions involving the economics of the plants.

More on evolutionary adaptations.
Dr Steve Paterson, from the University's School of Biosciences, explains: "Historically, it was assumed that most evolution was driven by a need to adapt to the environment or habitat. The Red Queen Hypothesis challenged this by pointing out that actually most natural selection will arise from co-evolutionary interactions with other species, not from interactions with the environment.
"This suggested that evolutionary change was created by 'tit-for-tat' adaptations by species in constant combat. This theory is widely accepted in the science community, but this is the first time we have been able to show evidence of it in an experiment with living things."
