Barrasso nuclear bill latest GOP effort to boost uranium mining

Rebecca Beitsch of The Hill reports that Rep. John Barrasso has introduced the American Nuclear Infrastructure Act.

  • We should encourage domestic nuclear energy production for environmental, security, and economic reasons.

“The legislation is designed to spur the development of advanced nuclear reactors, which though not yet commercially viable, are expected to be smaller and more scalable as well as safer.”
