Take action on Diablo Canyon NPP: tell California State Lands Commission to do full CEQA review / update

The Commission approved a new permit for PG&E at Diablo Canyon without an environmental review and rushed a new staff report, without adequate public review time.
Two hearings were held by the California Lands Commission — April 5, 2016 and June 28, 2016. The transcripts are below. At the second hearing, after public comments and comments by the commission, Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom moved to approve a new lease for PG&E, without an environmental review and without giving the public 30-days to review a revised staff report. He also applauded the agreement by PG&E to close Diablo Canyon in 9 years at the close of its license.
