This is the April 21, 2016 hearing "Enabling Advanced Reactors and a Legislative Hearing on S. 2795, The Nuclear Energy Innovation and Modernization Act," held before the Subcommittee on Clean Air and Nuclear Safety of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. From the opening statement of Shlley Moore Capito: "We are here to examine an exciting topic: advanced nuclear reactors. I would like to thank Senator Carper because I know he has a great interest in this. While nuclear issues may be somewhat new to me, I am learning that these technologies have the potential to make great strides in advancing nuclear technology. This is a topic many of us are very interested in because nuclear energy is an essential component of our all-of-the-above energy strategy. Our current nuclear plants provide clean, safe, reliable, and affordable energy to power our economy while providing thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in benefits to local communities. They have made vital contributions to our energy security for years, but we need to look forward to what comes next. Advanced reactors have the potential to be cleaner, safer, and more secure." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Christina A. Back, Ashley E. Finan, Maria Korsnick, Edwin Lyman, Victor McCree, and Jeffrey S. Merrifield.
