ALBUQUERQUE — The Senate has approved New Mexico Sen. Tom Udall’s proposed study of ways to reform oversight of the nation’s nuclear facilities.
The measure by Udall, a Democrat, and Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., was added to the Senate’s defense authorization bill Tuesday.
It would create an advisory panel to recommend ways to reform the National Nuclear Security Administration.
In a joint statement, Udall and Kyl said they sponsored proposal “in light of major management issues, cost overruns and security breaches in recent years.”
