Nuclear Energy Policy


Nuclear energy issues facing Congress include reactor safety and regulation, radioactive waste\r management, research and development priorities, federal incentives for new commercial\r reactors, nuclear weapons proliferation, and security against terrorist attacks.\r The earthquake and resulting tsunami that severely damaged Japan\'s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear\r power plant on March 11, 2011 raised questions in Congress about the disaster\'s possible\r implications for nuclear safety regulation, U.S. nuclear energy expansion, and radioactive waste\r policy. The tsunami knocked out electric power at the six-reactor plant, resulting in the\r overheating of several reactor cores, loss of cooling in spent fuel storage pools, major hydrogen\r explosions, and releases of radioactive material to the environment. The Nuclear Regulatory\r Commission (NRC) issued orders to U.S. nuclear plants March 12, 2012, to begin implementing\r safety improvements in response to Fukushima.
