ANS Member's Nomination Advances with Senate Panel

The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources advanced Dr. Rita Baranwal's nomination to Assistant Secretary of Nuclear Energy this morning, with only Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) opposed. 

The nomination will now move to the full Senate for consideration. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) has already stated she hopes that Dr. Baranwal will be confirmed along with other nominees before the end of the year.
