(BEAVER) -- Beaver County, state and federal officials are getting together today to outline their efforts to stop the transfer of Duquesne Lights Power plants. The federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission is considering a request to transfer ownership of the Shippingport nuclear power generation facility from Duquesne Light Company to FirstEnergy Corporation. State Representative Mike Veon says FirstEnergy is not living up to its agreement where employees and public safety are concerned.
