Domenici-Meserve NRC Licensing Review

At the request of Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gregory B. Jaczko, Former Senator and BPC Senior Fellow Pete Domenici and Former NRC Chairman Dick Meserve co-chaired an effort to independently assess the progress that has been made toward licensing Generation III nuclear power plants.  The Domenici-Meserve review did not find any evidence that either the NRC or industry has needlessly delayed or extended the licensing process, but did make a series of detailed recommendations for ways in which communication between the NRC and applicants could be improved.
