Obama introduces nuke disclosure bill
Measure stems from Braidwood leaks

By Jo Ann Hustis
Herald Writer

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Senator Barack Obama, D-Illinois, identifies his newly-introduced legislation mandating disclosure of radioactive leaks as a simple, commonsense bill.

Obama introduced the measure Thursday before the Clean Air, Climate Change and Nuclear Safety Subcommittee of the Environment and Public Works Committee.

The key to it being disclosing information fully and immediately, Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor noted today.

The Nuclear Release Notice Act would require notification of state and local officials simultaneously with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission when any radioactive leak exceeds NRC limits. <snip>
