2018 has been a year filled with legislative developments related to nuclear energy. Bills have been introduced and, in some cases passed into law, that facilitate nuclear innovation, deployment of micro-reactors, promote High-Assay Low Enriched Uranium, expand the use of public-private partnerships and reform the Department of Energy’s Part 810 process to improve U.S. competitiveness in foreign markets. Join us for a webinar to learn about the legislation, what developments may be on the horizon and how it will all affect your clients.
