This is the December 15, 2011 joint hearing on "Review of the NRC's near-Term Task Force Recommendations for Enhancing Reactor Safety in the 21st Century," held before the U.S. Senate/House Subcommittee on Clean Air and Nuclear Safety and the Committee on Environment and Public Works. From the opening statement of Barbara Boxer: "The mission of the NRC is to license and to regulate the nation's civilian use of byproduct, source, and special nuclear materials in order to protect public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment. Today is the fifth time the members of this Committee have gathered in this room to discuss nuclear safety following the Fukushima crisis in Japan in March. At each of those meetings, I have repeatedly asked the NRC to heed the wake-up call from Fukushima, to reevaluate the safety and security of nuclear plants in the United States, and to implement the recommendations of the Near-Term Task Force as soon as possible." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Gregory B. Jaczko, William Magwood, Kristine L. Svinicki, George Apostolakis, and William C. Ostendorff.
