Inhofe Comments on letter from NRC Commissioners to Obama on Chairman Jaczko  

Washington, D.C. - Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, commented on a letter sent two months ago by the four Commissioners at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to President Obama regarding the behavior of NRC Chairman Greg Jaczko.

"As Ranking Member of the committee of jurisdiction over the NRC, I am aware of the Commissioners' letter and taking their concerns very seriously," Senator Inhofe said.  "I commend the Commissioners for having the courage to raise these important issues, and I look forward to hearing from them when they testify before the Environment and Public Works Committee next week."
