The relicensing of the Point Beach Nuclear Power Plant located near Two Rivers, Wisconsin has been paused due to a lawsuit initiated by several non-profit organizations. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) ordered the memorandum on subsequent license renewals for nuclear reactors in the United States.

This memorandum is due to the above-mentioned lawsuit and pressure from other organizations to force the implementation of internal NRC regulations and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The NRC determined that before a subsequent license extension could be granted an updated environmental statement needed to be completed under NEPA. Thus, the Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) previously used was not adequate for a subsequent license renewal.
