LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL

COMMITTEE ON INTERIOR AND INSULAR AFFAIRS,

U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,

Washington, D.C., April 23, 1979. MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE ON INTERIOR AND INSULAR AFFAIRS, U.S. House of Representatives, , Washington, D.C.

DEAR COLLEAGUES: Traditionally, at the beginning of each year, the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy (JCAE) issued a committee print containing a compilation of all atomic energy legislation enacted into law through the previous session of Congress. This periodic updating proved to be a useful working document for the JCAE, the Congress, interested Government agencies, and the public. With the abolition of the JCAE, however, the updating and publication of this document came to an end. The last edition, printed by the JCAE in 1977, entitled "Atomic Energy Legislation Through the 94th Congress, 2d Session,” is now out of date and the supply virtually depleted.

In anticipation of increased congressional interest in the Nation's nuclear policies during the remainder of the 96th Congress. I am herewith transmitting a new and refocused updating, which has been prepared by the staff of the Subcommittee on Energy and the Environment.

This print contains all legislation enacted through the 95th Congress, 2d session, which pertains to nuclear regulation and the NRC. It represents a departure from JCAE practice inasmuch as nonregulatory nuclear research and development provisions have not been included. I hope you find this to be a helpful document. Sincerely,

MORRIS K. UDALL, Chairman..
