Government restrictions on information sharing “are hindering progress” in making nuclear facilities less vulnerable, a committee of the National Academy of Sciences wrote in a new report. The committee also said that “sharing information with the public is essential … for sustaining public confidence in the [Nuclear Regulatory] Commission as an effective regulator of the nuclear industry, and for reducing the potential for severe environmental, health, economic, and psychological consequences.” (4/8/05)
