1. Hard to know what's going on here.
snip from the article>

Jaczko responded that the commission's majority has loosened the agency's safety standards over his opposition. The exchanges bring into the open tensions and conflict within the agency that is responsible for regulating the 104 commercial reactors in the U.S. and is considering applications for a new generation of power plants.


A report released yesterday by Representative Edward Markey of Massachusetts blamed the four commissioners for trying to impede Jaczko's response to Japan's nuclear crisis in March.

They conspired, with each other and with senior NRC staff, to delay the release of and alter an agency task-force study on the crisis, according to the 22-page report. It is based on documents submitted by the commissioners in response to an October request from Markey, the top Democrat on the House Natural Resources Committee.


I've had the impression that Markey has been out front on nuclear safety and regulation. Need to get some clarity here.
