Westchester County lawmakers want a larger evacuation zone around the Indian Point nuclear power plant.

They are planning to call for a 50-mile zone around Indian Point, in light of what happened in Japan.

Current federal rules only require a 10-mile zone.

An exemption from those rules would be needed to expand the zone.

Lawmakers met Monday to discuss the situation. The conversation will continue Tuesday.
