ABSTRACT

Oversight on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Clean Air, Climate Change, and Nuclear Safety and the Committee on Environment and Public Works, United States Senate, One Hundred Ninth Congress, First Session, May 26, 2005   [open pdf - 22MB]

From the statement of Chairman George V. Voinovich: "Today's hearing continues this committee's strong oversight of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. This is the seventh in a series of oversight hearings that began in 1998, when Senator Inhofe was chairman of this subcommittee. […]At last week's hearing we addressed nuclear security, as well as many other issues, and I wish that many of my colleagues had been there, because we went beyond the security issues and got into some of the things that we are probably going to get into today. So you may get some questions on some of the things we already discussed, but it is important that the committee hear from you on those issues. Although the Commission has made significant progress in the area of security, they need help from us in Congress. You need help. Chairman Inhofe and I have introduced S. 864, the Nuclear Safety and Security Act of 2005, which includes provisions that you have requested for many years. Since last week's hearing focused solely on security, I encourage members and the witnesses to focus on non-security issues as much as possible today."
