220301 Huff Nomination DOE Sen ENR
March 01, 2022
Dear Chairman Manchin and Ranking Member Barrasso:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the nomination of Dr. Kathryn Huff to serve as Assistant Secretary for Nuclear Energy at the U.S. Department of Energy and urges the Committee to expeditiously consider her nomination.
Dr. Huff’s experience at DOE and research on modeling and simulation of advanced nuclear reactors and fuel cycles make her highly qualified for this position. If confirmed, Dr. Huff would build upon her extensive work in academia and in government to advance nuclear energy’s critical role in securing affordable, reliable emissions-free energy around the world.
The Chamber urges the Committee to favorably report Dr. Huff’s nomination to the full Senate. We look forward to working with her as she leads DOE implementation of the key policies and programs that were part of your committee’s vision for nuclear energy in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
Martin J. Durbin
