McConnell Calls For Quick Reconfirmation of NRC Commissioner Svinicki


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement today in which he called for quick Senate reconfirmation of Kristine Svinicki to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission:

"With today's renomination of Kristine Svinicki to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, it is critical that the Senate act quickly to confirm Ms. Svinicki before her term expires on June 30. I agree with the White House that there shouldn't be a break in her service on such an important Commission that ensures the safety of our nation's nuclear power plants. Commissioner Svinicki was confirmed to her current term without a single dissenting vote. As one of the world's leading experts on nuclear safety, she has served with distinction as a commissioner, and deserves a speedy reconfirmation. The 4,000 career employees at the NRC rely on her leadership and the American people need her expertise on the Commission."
