As a Commission, we are charged by statute to work as a collegial body. We each bring different backgrounds to the table and our ability to collaborate enhances public trust and industry confidence in our work.
I value this opportunity to meet with leaders of the
nuclear industry to discuss a number of important issues. I have met
many of you when you stopped by the NRC to introduce yourselves and your
companies to me. I have appreciated these meetings as an opportunity to
better understand your concerns.
Together, we maintain an
important yet complex relationship. The NRC exists to independently
oversee your industry and we provide the country with the reassurance
that you alone cannot provide: that nuclear facilities will operate in a
manner that protects the public’s health, safety, and security, as well
as the environment.
