Does anyone still think the NRC a neutral licensing organisation? There can be no doubt now that the NRC is a political tool. They yield to politicians rather than doing their job and upholding the law. It's amazing to think the NRC could get away with this on such a high profile case.

Fortunately the US court of Appeals is not in the pocket of these politicians, clearly. A good spanking for the NRC.

Is this perhaps yet another example of the Obama administration bypassing Congress and taking the law into its own hands?

You might like this then. The Columbia Circuit (which is one step below the Supreme Court) issued a ruling that DOE is to stop collecting the waste fee. The language is so blunt and derogatory, it's funny.

This ruling doesn't end the fee. It directs the Secretary to submit a plan to Congress to eliminate the fee.
