Protestors to greet McCain at Fermi II

Posted by LS

News 11's Rob Wiercinski has been covering the visit of presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain.

McCain is supposed to arrive at Fermi II Tuesday afternoon. He has proposed nuclear energy as part of his national energy plan. The plan includes building 45 new plants by 2030 if he is elected. Ultimately, he has proposed to build 100 plants

Protestors are waiting at the Frenchtown Township, MI plant near Monroe. Some have said nuclear power is a diversion from the real issues. One man told News 11 the answer to reduce dependency on foreign oil is to invest in our auto industry, so those companies can retool their product.

News 11 will continue to follow this story and bring new details as they become available.
