Report urges more gov't support for nuclear energy

Top Obama administration officials and industry leaders are discussing a new report calling for increased support to kickstart the nuclear energy industry in the U.S.

The report -- by the Energy Department's Idaho National Laboratory and the centrist-Democratic group Third Way -- urges Congress to increase money for loan guarantees for nuclear power plant construction. It says the federal government should support nuclear research and development and help export U.S. nuclear designs. And it suggests that new agencies could be enlisted, such as the Commerce and State Departments, to help the nuclear industry compete with foreign industries.

Energy Secretary Steven Chu and White House energy adviser Carol Browner were among those participating in Tuesday's session.
