From the History of SAPL:
PHOTO (1988) SAPL prepares to travel to Washington to deliver a 35,000-signature petition to Congress and the Nuclear Regulatory Committee. This petition prevented the Emergency Planning Zone from being shrunk from our current (and extremely inadequate) 10 mile radius to a one mile radius. In addition to being reckless, this would have prevented towns in Massachusetts (which are within the 10 mile radius) from having any say at the regulatory hearings regarding Seabrook’s Emergency Planning issues.
