Tell the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to Take Immediate Steps to Improve Reactor Safety
Ask the NRC to Vote for Commonsense Safeguards for Nuclear Power Plants
The NRC commissioners are reviewing a proposed regulation that would require almost a third of the nation’s reactors to install a special device to prevent radioactive releases.
The U.S. nuclear industry opposes the rule.
Tell the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to resist pressure from the nuclear industry and vote to enhance nuclear safety.

Without serious improvements to nuclear safety standards, what happened in Japan could happen in the United States. I urge you to take immediate action to enact and enforce the reforms recommended by the nuclear safety task force.
The accident in Japan is now considered on par with the accident in Russia. It has been 2 years since Japan's accident and still we are not protecting the U.S. Wind generates the same amount of power More....as nuclear. We need to get rid of nuclear and rely on wind and solar or make nuclear much safer for the existing nuclear power plants.

Nuclear reactors are unsafe and there is no back up plan for radioactive waste. Any improvement is better than what we have. Please be conscious of your actions and what it means for our longterm survival More....as a population and nation
Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation
Together, two separate corporate entities called Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation, Inc., form Public Citizen. Both entities are part of the same overall organization, and this Web site refers to the two organizations collectively as Public Citizen.
Although the work of the two components overlaps, some activities are done by one component and not the other. The primary distinction is with respect to lobbying activity. Public Citizen, Inc., an IRS § 501(c)(4) entity, lobbies Congress to advance Public Citizen’s mission of protecting public health and safety, advancing government transparency, and urging corporate accountability. Public Citizen Foundation, however, is an IRS § 501(c)(3) organization. Accordingly, its ability to engage in lobbying is limited by federal law, but it may receive donations that are tax-deductible by the contributor. Public Citizen Inc. does most of the lobbying activity discussed on the Public Citizen Web site. Public Citizen Foundation performs most of the litigation and education activities discussed on the Web site.
You may make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., Public Citizen Foundation, or both. Contributions to both organizations are used to support our public interest work. However, each Public Citizen component will use only the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the activities it conducts as part of Public Citizen’s mission. Only gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible. Individuals who want to join Public Citizen should make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., which will not be tax deductible.
