Nuclear Regulatory Commission Calls for Input on Openness

January 13, 2010

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission — long one of the more secretive government agencies — may be coming in from the cold.

"The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has invited the public to suggest categories of NRC information that should be published on its web site, and to recommend other measures the Commission might take to improve transparency, public participation and collaboration," reports Secrecy News.

NRC's move is a response to a Dec. 2009 White House Office of Management and Budget directive.
