The California legislature is planning to vote on Senate Bill 846 TOMORROW, August 31, extending the operation of Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant past its planned closure.
Californians deserve better than unsafe, unreliable, dirty energy. Bailing out Diablo Canyon would upend the energy resource development needed to meet California’s clean energy and climate goals while conning ratepayers and taxpayers for billions of dollars of wasted and misdirected investment in nuclear energy. Tell your California state legislators to VOTE NO on bills that waste our state tax money to keep the Diablo Canyon nuclear reactors open beyond their license expiration and planned closure in 2024 and 2025.

Hello, Senator or Assemblymember [name]:
My name is [state your name]. I am calling to ask you to oppose SB 846, the bill that would keep Diablo Canyon operating past its scheduled closure date in 2025.
SB 846 would also provide PG&E with $1.4 Billion a year in profits from taxpayers and ratepayers and allow shortcuts and sweeping exemptions from environmental reviews on seismic vulnerability, and an unlawful cooling system. There is no storage capacity for high-level radioactive waste past 2025. Please vote NO on SB 846!
