American Nuclear Society applauds President Bush on call to build advanced nuclear plants

ANS President Jim Reinsch recognized President Bush's call for more nuclear energy as part of the U.S. energy portfolio as a positive step for nuclear science and technology.

"We are greatly encouraged by the President's leadership in addressing the need for new advanced nuclear technology as part of the plan to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign sources of energy. Our scientists and engineers support the role of nuclear as a clean, non-emitting source of safe, reliable and cost effective electricity. Nuclear power must be a major part of the answer to the future need for base load electricity sources," Reinsch stated. "Several of our power companies are moving forward with the preparations for licensing and building new nuclear plants in the U.S. The role of the federal government in removing barriers and supporting this deployment process is critical to the balanced and stable energy policy for years to come."
