This is the July 29 and August 1, 1977 hearing on "Nuclear Waste Management and Disposal," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce. From the opening statement of John E. Moss: "We are commencing a hearing by the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce on the problems of nuclear waste management and disposal. [...] Today we begin the hearing on this issue. It is the subcommittee's first inquiry into the U.S. nuclear programs. The subcommittee acquired oversight jurisdiction over the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA) at the beginning of this Congress under rules X1 (1) and X3 (h) of the rules of the House. The subcommittee has selected nuclear waste because of apparently serious policy and management failures in various programs for dealing with radioactive wastes. Particularly pressing today is the awkward position of the NRC, ERDA, and the nuclear industry--we are rapidly running out of space to store the used fuel coming out of the nuclear reactors that are now on line producing electrical power."
