Making Nuclear Great Again
President Trump capped off Energy Week yesterday with a shout-out to nuclear power, announcing a study of U.S. nuclear energy policy that "will help us find new ways to revitalize this crucial energy resource." The study is the first of six policy initiatives meant to create a "new era of American energy dominance."
Speaking of energy dominance, Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources yesterday also introduced S. 1460, the Energy and Natural Resources Act of 2017. Building on the Energy Policy Modernization Act from the 114th Congress, this wide-ranging bill includes previous bipartisan legislative provisions encouraging the development of advanced reactors.
