U.S. Government Response to the Nuclear Power Plant Incident in Japan, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, House of Representatives, One Hundred Twelfth Congress, First Session, April 6, 2011   [open pdf - 6MB]

From the opening statement of Cliff Stearns: "Today, the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations will examine the United States government's response to the ongoing incident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. We will look in particular at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's response to the events in Japan and the safety and preparedness of U.S. commercial nuclear power plants. Congress, in large part led by this committee, the Energy and Commerce Committee and the Oversight Subcommittee, should conduct vigorous oversight of nuclear power plant safety and security. And we should confront any lessons from the incident in Japan and assess carefully whether they apply to the United States. Today represents the beginning of that work for this committee." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Martin J. Virgilio, William Levis, Edwin Lyman, Michael Corradini, and Cliff Stearns.
