On April 18, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) appointed former Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Chairman Gregory Jaczko to the Congressional Advisory Panel on the Governance of the Nuclear Security Enterprise. The FY13 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) created the 12 member panel which is designed to make recommendations to improve the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA); that recommendation is due by February 2014. Jaczko resigned from the NRC last summer amid allegations of verbally abusing staff members.
