Letter to Secretary Chu

Excerpt from the letter:

The members of the Nuclear Waste Strategy Coalition (NWSC) strongly supports the request of the Nuclear Energy Institute who represents the nuclear energy industry, and the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners who represent states ratepayers, to suspend the withholding of fees paid into the Nuclear Waste Fund (NWF) paid by ratepayers from 41 states through their electric utilities.
