Letter to Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz on Yucca Mountain Restart Plans


Excerpt: “Recently, we asked the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to examine for the Committee what would be necessary for DOE to fulfill its obligation to complete its work on the Yucca Mountain License Application. During your March 2 appearance before the Energy & Power Subcommittee you committed to cooperate with GAO on its project, and we appreciate that. As part of our process to develop a comprehensive legislative framework, we look forward to hearing from you at a future Committee hearing about what legislative authority the Department needs to implement its “Strategy.” We will work with your office to find a mutually agreeable date, following your response to the questions below.”
