Washington, D.C. – On Thursday, September 13, 2018, the House approved S. 97, the Nuclear Energy Innovation Capabilities Act of 2017, introduced by Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID). This bill is the Senate version of H.R. 431, the Nuclear Energy Innovation Capabilities Act of 2017, introduced by Congressman Randy Weber (R-Friendswood). Congressman Weber released the following statement:

“Access to fast neutrons affords us an opportunity to explore the crucial development of next generation reactor designs, materials, and nuclear fuels. The Versatile Neutron Source authorized in our bill gives our scientists and national labs the tools do just that. We can’t afford to lose the ability to discover innovative nuclear technology here at home. America should lead the global marketplace. I’d like to thank Chairman Lamar Smith, Ranking Member Eddie Bernice Johnson, Senator Mike Crapo, and Senator Sheldon Whitehouse for their efforts as we advance our bill all the way to the President’s desk.”
