ABSTRACT

H. Rept. 117-98: Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill, 2022, Report Together with Minority Views, to Accompany H.R. 4549, July 20, 2021   [open pdf - 5MB]

From the Overview: "The Committee recommendation prioritizes the most critical, inherently federal responsibilities of this bill: the national defense; energy innovation to increase economic prosperity while providing additional solutions for mitigating and adapting to climate change; investing in infrastructure, including the maintenance of the nation's waterways; and the resilience and security of electricity infrastructure. Strong support is included for basic science programs, which provide the foundation for new energy technologies that are vital to maintaining global competitiveness and ensuring long-term prosperity but that are often too high-risk to receive the attention of the private sector. The recommendation provides strong support for applied energy research, development, and demonstration activities to improve and extend the performance of existing energy sources and accelerate the adoption of new clean energy technologies. The recommendation also recognizes the importance of the federal government's responsibility to clean up the legacy of five decades of nuclear weapons production and government-sponsored nuclear energy research, and the recommendation takes steps forward to address spent nuclear fuel."
