MINERAL, Va. (AP) - The federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission says it will issue a license for a third nuclear reactor at Dominion Energy's North Anna plant in Virginia.

NRC said in a statement Wednesday the commission found the staff's review of Dominion's application to be adequate to make the regulatory safety and environmental findings. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports the State Corporation Commission hasn't yet approved the project.
