From the opening statement of James M. Inhofe: "The lack of clear schedules and resolution of key issues will compound the growing pains that the Commission and the industry must wrestle with as we end our 30-year construction hiatus.

Keeping the lights on is fundamental to our nation's energy security, and the NRC will undoubtedly play a critical role."
