On July 19, the NRC saw an 82-page report internal task force, Recommendations for Enhancing Reactor Safety in the 21st Century, on what can be learned from Japan's nuclear disaster, and Chairman Gregory B. Jaczko has pledged to move quickly on safety reforms. Jaczko wants the commission to complete its review of the recommendations contained in the task force report in the next 90 days. In a July 18 letter, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.), Reps. Ed Whitfield (R-KY), John Shimkus (R-IL), and Cliff Stearns (R-FL), told Jaczko that they will be closely monitoring the NRC's safety review process and will conduct oversight hearings. In a July 18 speech Jaczko said that while it is true the NRC task force found no imminent threat, the report made 12 major recommendations he wants enacted as soon as possible.
