Dear Chair Murkowski and Ranking Member Manchin:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports S. 903, the Nuclear Energy Leadership Act (“NELA”). With 16 bipartisan cosponsors, NELA embodies the across-the-aisle collaboration necessary to develop effective legislation that will move America forward and enhance our global competitiveness.
NELA would bolster America’s historic leadership in nuclear energy by developing next-generation nuclear energy resources. While other countries have developed competing nuclear industries, our domestic development and use of nuclear generation has stagnated. NELA would tip the balance back in our favor.
