COVERT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — The chairwoman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is scheduled to tour two nuclear power plants in southwestern Michigan.

Allison Macfarlane is visiting the Donald C. Cook plant in Berrien County's Lake Township and the Palisades plant in Van Buren County's Covert Township on Friday. U.S. Rep. Fred Upton of St. Joseph will accompany her. The plants are in his district.

NRC spokeswoman Viktoria Mitlyng says the visits are routine.

Palisades has had numerous shutdowns in recent years and was designated by the NRC as one of the nation's four worst-performing nuclear plants.

Anti-nuclear activists also were meeting with Macfarlane and her staff.
