Washington, DC - The Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works tonight reported the nominations of Kristine L. Svinicki, of Virginia, and Gregory B. Jaczko, of the District of Columbia, to be Members of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The nominations now go to the full Senate for consideration.

In addition to the two nominations, the Committee approved 26 pending General Services Administration (GSA) prospectuses. GSA prospectuses provide funds that are used for new construction and office space leases of buildings for all federal agencies and courthouses throughout the country.
