This is the April 15, 2015 hearing titled "Oversight Hearing: The President's Fiscal Year 2016 Budget Request for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission" held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. From the opening statement of James Inhofe: "The NRC's [Nuclear Regulatory Commission's] mission is a vital one and must be adequately funded. I want our nuclear plants to be safe and they are safe, in spite of some of the things you might hear to the contrary. However, resources are not unlimited. As the size of our nuclear industry shrinks, the NRC must recognize that it can accomplish its mission with fewer resources. In fact, it has done so in the past. I conducted my first oversight hearing as Chairman of the Nuclear Safety Subcommittee in 1998. In 1998, this Commission had gone 4 years without any oversight." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Stephen G. Burns, Kristine L. Svinicki, William C. Ostendorff, and Jeff Baran.
