Statement from American Nuclear Society’s Executive Director/CEO Craig Piercy:

“ANS applauds the Senate’s inclusion of provisions from the Nuclear Energy Leadership Act within the National Defense Authorization Act. The NELA provisions will require the U.S. Department of Energy to provide for the much-needed versatile test reactor, create a commercial stockpile of high-assay low-enriched uranium fuel, and establish various demonstration goals and research and development programs for advanced reactors.

The NELA provisions will enable technical progress in the development of advanced nuclear technologies, which are critical for our national security and decarbonization efforts.”
