On Friday, the House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee released a scathing report on the work of the chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Gregory Jazcko. The committee will be holding hearings on allegations on Tuesday. Underlying the allegations, of course, is the wish to re-start Yucca Mountain as a nuclear waste repository. We hear what the problems were and what the committee thinks needs to be done to re-start Yucca Mountain.

GUEST
Congressman Joe Barton, R-Texas
