This is the February 6, 2018 hearing titled "DOE [Department of Energy] Modernization: Advancing the Economic and National Security Benefits of America's Nuclear Infrastructure," held before the House Subcommittee on Energy of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of Fred Upton: "Today, more than 60 years later, many Atomic Energy Act provisions remain unchanged. Yet the world nuclear outlook has changed dramatically, and certain policies governing domestic involvement and participation in global markets really no longer reflect reality. The U.S. is no longer the undisputed leader in civilian nuclear technology. Four hundred and forty commercial nuclear power reactors operate in 31 countries, with additional countries pursuing peaceful nuclear power programs. And for many years, subsidized state-owned nuclear companies have been successfully competing against our companies for commercial opportunities. Throughout this Congress, we have examined two key challenges confronting the nuclear industry: how electricity markets function, as part of our 'Powering America' series, and how to get our Nation's nuclear waste management back on track." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Edward G. McGinnis, Art Atkins, James Owendoff, Victor M. McCree, William C. Ostendorff, Mark Peters, Maria G. Korsnick, David C. Trimble, and Ashley E. Finan.
