The nuclear energy industry in the US has already begun to work with Congress on how to advance nuclear priorities through energy legislation next year, Alex Flint, the Nuclear Energy Institute’s senior vice-president for governmental affairs said in an interview posted on the institute’s website.

Mr Flint said it is too early to know which priorities will be included, but there will be “very serious consideration” given to nuclear priorities in legislation before Congress. He said: “We anticipate serious legislating on used fuel will resume and the NEI will strongly support that effort.”
