1974 - Ford - reprocessing and recycling...should not proceed

1977 - Carter - will defer indefinitely

1981 - Reagan - lifting the indefinite ban

1992 - GHW Bush - disapproved LIPA / Cogema to reprocess the slightly irradiated initial core from the Shoreham reactor, halted weapons reprocessing, announced the permanent closure of the PUREX reprocessing plant

1993 - Clinton - policy statement on reprocessing: “the United States does not encourage the civil use of plutonium and, accordingly, does not itself engage in plutonium reprocessing for either nuclear power or nuclear explosive purposes. The United States, however, will maintain its existing commitments regarding the use of reprocessing for civil nuclear programs in Western Europe and Japan.”

1995 - Clinton - On November 29, 1995, a new nuclear cooperation agreement with EURATOM was submitted to Congress, some Members believed it did not meet the requirement of prior consent for reprocessing. The
agreement entered into effect in 1996 without a vote

2001 -  GWBush - National Energy Policy included the recommendation: the United States should consider technologies to develop reprocessing and fuel treatment technologies
