Public comment re Price-Anderson Act

Public Comment on Notice of Inquiry Concerning Preparation of Report to Congress on the Price Anderson Act. On behalf of our members in all 50 states, our comment is this: the Price Anderson Act should be rescinded. It is not appropriate for the taxpayers in the person of the federal government to take the burden of liability for a commercial, private corporate activity. It is not appropriate for the liability of a life-threatening activity - nuclear fission - to be capped in such a way that individuals and communities must bear the ultimate cost. It is unfair protectionism for nuclear power to enjoy this shielding of their cost of doing business.
