Who’s Who in Nuclear Energy in Trump’s Washington

With the inauguration of President Donald Trump this week and the start of the 115th Congress, the new administration will provide ample opportunity for progress on issues critical to the nuclear energy industry. NEI has compiled two charts: Trump’s cabinet and administration nominees and the issues they own, and new and returning leaders of congressional committees and their areas of oversight.

Who's responsible for educating Rick Perry on what the Department of Energy actually is?  Who then will be his fall guy when the Department of Energy goes into the can and can't get out?  Lastly who is responsible for telling Rick Perry how to spell DOE?

OK, so let's recap: 1.  Former Tex Gov Rick Perry can grease the skids for the Andrews site to be the temporary long-term high level waste repository. :)  2. The Andrews site is now owned by Energy Solutions, who bought it from WCS and payed off their 77 mil debt (how is debt possible?). Energy Solutions,  who's stock crashed in 2009 and was bought out be Energy Capital Partners (a private energy company grabber,) who have since sold those projects to Atkins (the Brits) who are now running contracts at DOE Portsmouth and Paducah to treat UF6.

So in brief what you are saying is that no-nothing Rick Perry has the controls of one of the largest Departments in the US, doesn't know that US owned Companies are not running projects such as Andrews, and still doesn't know how to spell DOE?  I thought we were bringing the world's business back to the US????

Well, a couple things:  Energy Solutions is a direct wholly-owned subsidiary. So there's some layers of separation.  It's also a waste site and not a sensitive DOE site. So it won't be new territory for a foreign company (say BNFL) being teamed in cleanup projects.

In theory, these subsidiaries are just trade names or recognizable brand names like EG&G, URS, Westinghouse, but there's nothing left of the original company.
