This is the March 4, 2020 hearing titled "Oversight of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission" before the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. From the opening statement of John Barrasso: "Clean and constant nuclear power is a cornerstone of our Nation's energy infrastructure. It is also vital if we are serious about addressing climate change. Nuclear energy reliability generates electricity to power our homes and our businesses. Over the decades, utilities have steadily improved performance to increase how much nuclear energy the United States produces. As things stand today, this trend will not continue. Subsidized renewable energy production and costly regulations are contributing to the decline of America's nuclear industry. To help preserve and expand nuclear energy, Congress passed the Nuclear Energy Innovation and Modernization Act. The law requires the commission to be prepared to review new reactor designs." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Kristine Svinicki, Jeff Baran, Annie Caputo, and David Wright.
