United States Senate Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Clean Air and Nuclear Safety
The U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Clean Air and Nuclear Safety is one of seven subcommittees of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works.
The subcommittee was formerly known as the Subcommittee on Clean Air, Climate Change, and Nuclear Safety, but was renamed during committee organization of the 110th Congress, after responsibility over global warming issues transferred to the Subcommittees on Public Sector Solutions and Subcommittee on Private Sector Solutions to Global Warming. The subcommittee still retains some inherent oversight over global warming issues due to its jurisdiction over the federal Clean Air Act.
The subcommittee's jurisdiction includes:
- Clean Air Act
- Indoor Air
- Tennessee Valley Authority
- Economic Development Administration
- Nuclear Plant Security and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission
Members, 113th Congress
- Bernie Sanders is an Independent, but caucuses with Democrats on the committee.
