President Obama and the Department of Energy are working to restart America's nuclear industry to help meet our energy and climate challenges and create thousands of new jobs. The Administration is fully committed to ensuring that long-term storage obligations for nuclear waste are met.
The President has made clear that Yucca Mountain is not an option for waste storage. The Blue Ribbon Commission on America's Nuclear Future, led by Congressman Lee Hamilton and General Brent Scowcroft, has conducted a comprehensive review of policies for managing the back end of the nuclear fuel cycle, and has offered recommendations for developing a safe, long-term solution to managing the Nation's used nuclear fuel and nuclear waste.
