SODDY DAISY, Tenn. (AP) -- The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will hold public meetings in Soddy Daisy to discuss the agency's review of the Tennessee Valley Authority's application to renew the operating license of the Sequoyah nuclear power plant.

The meetings will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Soddy Daisy City Hall. NRC staff members will explain the license renewal process and solicit public comments on the environmental review.

TVA's current operating licenses for the plant's two pressurized-water reactors are set to expire in 2020 and 2021. TVA is asking NRC to renew the licenses for an additional 20 years
