Blue Ribbon Commission on America's Nuclear Future to Hold First Meeting

Washington, D.C. - On Thursday, March 25th and Friday, March 26th, the Blue Ribbon Commission on Americas Nuclear Future, co-chaired by former Congressman Lee Hamilton and former National Security Advisor General Brent Scowcroft, will hold its first meeting in Washington, D.C.

At the direction of President Obama, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu established the Blue Ribbon Commission to conduct a comprehensive review of policies for managing the back end of the nuclear fuel cycle and to provide recommendations for developing a safe, long-term solution to managing the Nations used nuclear fuel and nuclear waste.

The Commission is made up of 15 members who have a range of expertise and experience in nuclear issues, including scientists, industry representatives, and respected former elected officials. The Commission will produce an interim report within 18 months and a final report within 24 months.

Read the Commissions charter.

The meeting will be held at the Willard Intercontinental in Washington, D.C. Further details will be released soon and published in a Federal Register notice.
