Southern California Edison is out with a report on what might need to be done to move 3.6 million pounds of waste from the shuttered San Onofre nuclear power plant.

Along with the report comes the formation of a new coalition called Action for Spent Fuel Solutions Now whose members include Edison and SDG&E as well as elected officials from Orange and San Diego counties.

Rob Nikolewski, energy reporter for The San Diego Union-Tribune, joined Midday Edition on Thursday to discuss the report and the new coalition.

The SONGS Community Engagement Panel will discuss the report at a virtual meeting 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
