Brushing off recent biting criticism of her colleagues, the new chair of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission told reporters on Tuesday morning that she'll ignore outside distractions and focus on key challenges facing the agency, chief among them pressing lawmakers to find an acceptable spot to store nuclear waste for the long term.
The head of the Senate committee that oversees the Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Thursday that allegations that the agency chairman was a bully were unfounded and unfairly maligned him.
Four Nuclear Regulatory commissioners from both parties say they have "grave concerns" about the panel's chairman, charging that the actions of Gregory Jaczko are "causing serious damage" to the commission and creating a "chilled work environment at the NRC."
He said one woman described how, after an encounter with Mr. Jaczko, she "couldn't stop shaking" and her supervisor had to calm her down before she could drive home safely.
One of those commissioners, William Magwood, one of the Democrats, told Congress last year that he spoke with three women who had complained of bad behavior, including "a raging verbal assault."
