Nuclear Regulatory Commission Should Reject Lawmakers’ Call for Watering Down, Slowing Down Post-Fukushima Safety Upgrades
[link to www.ucsusa.org]


The Union of Concerned Scientists today sent a letter to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) urging the agency to reject recent requests by House and Senate Republicans to weaken critical post-Fukushima safety reforms and slow down their implementation.

UCS’s letter is in response to recent letters sent to the NRC by Senate and House Republicans complaining that the agency is moving too quickly with costly post-Fukushima safety upgrade requirements.

The House and Senate letters also criticized an NRC staff recommendation that the agency require the owners of General Electric Mark I and Mark II boiling water reactors—the same kind of reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant—to install filtered vents to reduce radioactive releases in the event of an accident. Twenty-three of the 104 currently operating reactors in the United States are Mark I reactors. Another eight are Mark II designs.
