This is the May 3, 2019 field hearing titled "How the Domestic Nuclear Industry Boosts Local Economies, Curbs Emissions, and Strengthens National Security," held before the House Subcommittee on Energy Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. From the opening statement of Conor Lamb: "The overall purpose of the hearing is to recognize nuclear energy broadly for the role it plays as an emissions-free energy source and as a national security asset, as well as for the impact these plants have on local economies. A specific focus will be on research and development needs to extend the lifetime of currently operating nuclear plants. Many of the nuclear plants in Pennsylvania are now at risk of being permanently shut down, and there is state legislation under consideration to support nuclear energy sources in similar ways to other emissions-free sources." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Peter Lyons, William Fallon, Tina M. Taylor, and Jay Apt.
