WASHINGTON, D.C. , December 11, 2018 | Andre Castro (202-225-6105) | comments

Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 6140, the Advanced Nuclear Fuel Availability Act, sponsored by Congressman Bill Flores (R-TX) and Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-CA). Congressman Flores issued the following statement regarding passage of the bill:

"American innovators are developing the next generation of nuclear reactors so that our nation can continue to capitalize on nuclear power’s potential as a clean, efficient and reliable source of energy. The bipartisan Advanced Nuclear Fuel Availability Act establishes a public-private solution to develop, manufacture and transport the next generation fuels to power the advanced nuclear reactors of tomorrow. These important advancements will ensure that zero-emission nuclear power continues to provide a meaningful portion of our country’s ‘always-on, baseload’ electricity used in our homes and businesses. I urge the Senate to pass this important, bipartisan bill so that we can power our 21st century economy in an environmentally friendly way for hardworking American families."
