2010 resubmission of the U.S.-Russia nuclear cooperation agreement : further actions needed by State and other agencies to improve the review of the Classified Nuclear Proliferation Assessment by Gene Aloise( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On May 10, 2010, the President resubmitted to Congress a proposed Agreement Between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the Russian Federation for Cooperation in the Field of Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy (henceforth referred to as the U.S.-Russia nuclear cooperation agreement or the agreement) in accordance with the review requirements established under section 123 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (AEA), as amended. The proposed agreement with Russia would, among other things, establish the legal basis for the Department of Energy (DOE) to work with Russia on large-scale development of nuclear energy. The Department of State (State) is responsible for negotiating any proposed agreement, with the technical assistance and concurrence of DOE. State must consult with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). It is State's consistent practice to send the proposed agreement and accompanying documents to the Department of Defense (DOD) for review. This report responds to congressional request that we assess the review process for the 2010 submission of the U.S.-Russia nuclear cooperation agreement. Our objectives were to assess the extent to which (1) agencies reported having adequate time to review the Nuclear Proliferation Assessment Statement (NPAS) and classified annexes, (2) State implemented our recommendations to develop written procedures and clarify agency roles for the 2010 review process, and (3) additional actions may be required to strengthen the review process for future nuclear cooperation agreements
Telecommunications : information collection and management at the Federal Communications Commission : report to the Honorable Edward J. Markey, House of Representatives by United States( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates industries that affect the lives of virtually all Americans. FCC-regulated industries provide Americans with daily access to communications services, including wireline and wireless telephone, radio, and television. To ensure FCC is carrying out its mission, the commission requires a significant amount of information, such as ownership and operating information from radio and television stations. In prior reports, GAO has found weaknesses with FCC's information collection, management, and reporting processes. While FCC has taken action, the commission has not implemented all the recommendations associated with information collection, management, and reporting. As requested, this report provides information on (1) the information FCC collects; (2) how FCC collects and manages information; (3) the strengths and weaknesses, if any, in FCC's information collection and management practices; and (4) the status of FCC's internal review of its information collection and management practices. To complete this work, GAO gathered information on FCC's information collection efforts, reviewed information collection and management practices for 30 collection instruments, interviewed agency officials and industry stakeholders, and reviewed relevant laws and guidance

Electric grid vulnerability : industry response reveal security gaps by Edward J Markey( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last few years have seen the threat of a crippling cyber-attack against the U.S. electric grid increase significantly. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta identified a "cyber-attack perpetrated by nation states or extremist groups" as capable of being "as destructive as the terrorist attack on 9/11." A five-year old National Academy of Sciences report declassified and released in November 2012 found that physical damage by terrorists to large transformers could disrupt power to large regions of the country and could take months to repair, and that "such an attack could be carried out by knowledgeable attackers with little risk of detection or interdiction." On May 16, 2013, the Department of Homeland Security testified that in 2012, it had processed 68% more cyber-incidents involving Federal agencies, critical infrastructure, and other select industrial entities than in 2011. It also recently warned industry of a heightened risk of cyber-attack, and reportedly noted increased cyber-activity that seemed to be based in the Middle East, including Iran. Current efforts to protect the nation's electric grid from cyber-attack are comprised of voluntary actions recommended by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), an industry organization, combined with mandatory reliability standards that are developed through NERC's protracted, consensus-based process. Additionally, an electric utility or grid-related entity may take action on its own initiative. In light of the increasing threat of cyber-attack, numerous security experts have called on Congress to provide a federal entity with the necessary authority to ensure that the grid is protected from potential cyber-attacks and geomagnetic storms. Despite these calls for action, Congress has not provided any governmental entity with that necessary authority. In 2010, bipartisan cyber-security legislation known as the GRID Act passed the House of Representatives by voice vote. If enacted, this legislation would have provided the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) with the authority to require necessary actions to protect the grid. However, this legislation did not pass the Senate and has not been taken up again by the House since that time. To inform congressional consideration of this issue, Representatives Edward J. Markey and Henry A. Waxman requested information in January 2013 from more than 150 investor-owned utilities (IOUs), municipally-owned utilities, rural electric cooperatives, and federal entities that own major pieces of the bulk power system. As of early May, more than 60% of the entities had responded (54 investor-owned utilities, 47 municipally-owned utilities and rural electric cooperatives, and 12 federal entities). This report is based upon those responses
Chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing by United States( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hydraulic fracturing (also known as "fracking" or "hydrofracking") has helped to expand natural gas production in the United States, unlocking large natural gas supplies in shale and other unconventional formations across the country. As a result of hydraulic fracturing and advances in horizontal drilling technology, natural gas production in 2010 reached the highest level in decades. According to new estimates by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the United States possesses natural gas resources sufficient to supply the United States for approximately 110 years. As the use of hydraulic fracturing has grown, so have concerns about its environmental and public health impacts. One concern is that hydraulic fracturing fluids used to fracture rock formations contain numerous chemicals that could harm human health and the environment, especially if they enter drinking water supplies. The opposition of many oil and gas companies to public disclosure of the chemicals they use has compounded this concern. Last Congress, the Committee on Energy and Commerce launched an investigation to examine the practice of hydraulic fracturing in the United States. As part of that inquiry, the Committee asked the 14 leading oil and gas service companies to disclose the types and volumes of the hydraulic fracturing products they used in their fluids between 2005 and 2009 and the chemical contents of those products. This report summarizes the information provided to the Committee
