Posted By Nicolas Loris On July 6, 2009 @ 5:30 pm In Energy | Comments Disabled

Tomorrow, July 7th, new Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gregory Jaczko, appointed by President Obama, will speak in The Heritage Foundation’s Allison Auditorium.

As momentum builds behind new nuclear power in the United States, questions remain about whether the nation is truly at the threshold of a nuclear renaissance. Of critical importance is how the nuclear industry is regulated and how the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) might change under the leadership of its new Chairman, Gregory Jaczko. What priorities will Chairman Jaczko place at the top of his agenda? Is the Commission prepared to regulate a quickly growing nuclear energy industry? Please join us for a special lecture by Chairman Jaczko as he puts forth his agenda for the NRC at this critical juncture for both the nuclear industry and the nation.

The event will go from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. You can RSVP here [1].
