Feedback from nuclear sector to inform hearing on NRC licensing process
Leaders of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce last month sent letters to a variety of nuclear sector stakeholders requesting input in preparation for a June 14 hearing titled “Oversight of NRC: Ensuring Efficient and Predictable Nuclear Safety Regulation for a Prosperous America.” (The hearing will be livestreamed at https://energycommerce.house.gov/.)
“We invite you to submit to the committee information and recommendations to improve the licensing review and approval process, as well as the oversight of NRC licensees,” the lawmakers wrote. “We are interested in NRC activities involving the licensing and oversight of today’s operating reactors, as well as the siting, licensing, construction, and oversight of advanced nuclear reactor technologies.” The letter also noted the committee’s interest in “improving NRC efficiency, management of regulatory costs and fees, public health and safety, staff effectiveness and culture, collaboration with the Department of Energy, and international activities.”

What's in a Name? Making the case for America's state-of-the-art facilities
State-of-the-art facilities attract talent, creativity and collaboration. Without sustained investment, America's scientific infrastructure cannot support world-class learning, research or technology commercialization. This session aims to distinguish development from deployment activities and to articulate the particular contributions that universities, national laboratories and private companies make to assert American leadership in the global nuclear enterprise.
