This is a testimony compilation of the March 24, 2015 "Budget Hearing - Nuclear Regulatory Commission," held before the House Committee on Appropriations. From the opening statement of Mike Simpson: "Our government should not make policy based on energy sources that the market favors at any particular time. It is our job to address our energy needs strategically -- and work to create an environment where all forms of energy can compete. A robust energy portfolio is the best path to a secure energy future. I believe that nuclear energy is a critical component of that portfolio. The Commission plays an important role in ensuring nuclear energy's success. Nuclear energy must continue its strong safety record but regulations need to ensure safety without placing undue burden on the industry. We must move forward on long term waste storage. And -- the Commission must be prepared to advance new and innovative nuclear technologies." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Stephen Burns.
