CONSUMERS POWER CO. PLANS TO LOAD STORAGE CASKS AT PALISADES

 JACKSON, Mich., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers Power Company announced that tomorrow it will begin loading two temporary storage casks with spent nuclear fuel at its Palisades nuclear plant near South Haven. On May 3, 1993, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued the final Certificate of Compliance to the cask vendor, Pacific Sierra Nuclear Associates.
 Consumers Power will file its briefs by 4 p.m. tomorrow in response to a lawsuit, brought by Michigan's Attorney General, a citizens group and several individuals, seeking to block use of the casks. The judge has further ordered a hearing on Monday, May 10, 1993, at 10 a.m.
 Consumers Power Company, the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy Corporation, is Michigan's largest natural gas and electric utility serving almost 6 million of the state's 9 million residents in 67 of the 68 Lower Peninsula counties.
