United States Senate
Dear Mrs. Hall:
Thank you for contacting me regarding the safety of our country’s nuclear power plants. As Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee (EPW), which has jurisdiction over domestic nuclear regulatory activities, I appreciate hearing from you on this vitally important issue.
Following the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan and the subsequent damage and failure of nuclear reactors in that country, I called on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to conduct an immediate, comprehensive review of the safety of all nuclear power plants in the United States. I also convened an EPW hearing to review the Japanese nuclear emergency and its implications for nuclear safety in the United States.
It is critically important to thoroughly examine all plants subject to significant seismic activity or located near a coastline (notably California’s San Onofre and Diablo Canyon plants), the 54 plants that were licensed prior to 1980, and those plants licensed after 1980 that share significant characteristics with the compromised reactors in Japan. That is why I have also asked the NRC to respond to specific questions about plant design and operations, type of reactor, and preparedness to withstand an earthquake or tsunami. I also believe that before there is any license renewal granted in California, all in-depth earthquake and tsunami studies must be completed.
I am pleased to report that the NRC recently issued inspection reports on all 104 U.S. nuclear power reactors and will continue its oversight process to ensure that these facilities are up to code and comply with all public health and safety regulations.
Again, thank you for writing to me. Be assured that I will keep working to protect the health and safety of the American public.
Sincerely,

Barbara Boxer
United States Senator
