This is the August 2, 2011 joint hearing on 'Review of the NRC's [Nuclear Regulatory Commission] Near-Term Task Force Recommendations for Enhancing Reactor Safety in the 21st Century' held before the United States Senate Subcommittee on Clear Air and Nuclear Safety of the Committee on Environment and Public Works. From the opening statement of Senator Barbara Boxer: "Today is the fourth time the Members of this Committee have gathered in this room to discuss nuclear safety following the disaster in Japan. Since our first briefing on March 16th, I have asked the NRC to heed the wake-up call and reevaluate our current safety and security measures that are at our nuclear power plants. I especially wanted them to look at our power plants that are located in areas that face the possibility of natural disasters such as earthquakes and flooding. California's two nuclear power plants at Diablo and San Onofre are located in seismically active areas, and I want to repeat that any task force recommendations be implemented as soon as possible since millions of people live close to those plants, millions and millions of people." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Gregory B. Jaczko, Kristine L. Svinicki, George Apostolakis, William D. Magwood, William C. Ostendorff.
