WASHINGTON D.C. The Nuclear Innovation Alliance (NIA) shared the following statement in response to the passage the ADVANCE Act in the Senate. This statement may be attributed to NIA Executive Director Judi Greenwald: 


"This evening the Senate passed the ADVANCE Act as part of S. 870, the Fire Grants and Safety Act.  This bill is a major step forward in advanced nuclear innovation, helps re-establish U.S. international nuclear energy leadership, and assists advanced reactor developers with the licensing of their technologies.  NIA has long supported the passage of the ADVANCE Act and is very pleased to see it make its way through both chambers of Congress. We look forward to it being signed into law by President Biden."
