?It is an honor to testify before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

I have 36 years of experience in every facet of the international nuclear fuel cycle from the production and global marketing of uranium to its use as clean-energy fuel in the Palo Verde Nuclear Station near Phoenix, Arizona.

This is an exciting time for nuclear, which is already providing electricity to 1 in 5 American homes and over half of our nation?s carbon-free power.tate-owned uranium entities in recent years.

America is dangerously close to losing our uranium fuel industrial base:

We lack a domestic enrichment capacity free of control by foreign powers;

The sole U.S. conversion facility in Illinois has been idle since 2017 and will restart operations in 2023;

we are nearly completely dependent on foreign uranium imports ? state-owned entities in Russia, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan are supplying almost half of the fuel used by America?s reactor fleet.

Chinese state-owned entities are capturing large portions of global uranium mining capacity, taking supply out of the free-market and putting it under Beijing?s control.

Uranium is also required for naval propulsion and nuclear deterrence, the pure essence of what it means to be a critical mineral.

Russia and China fully leverage energy dominance to their geopolitical advantage.

The similarities to our rare earth mineral dependance on China are startling, but it doesn?t have to be this way and it isn?t too late.

With swift action to implement the strategic uranium reserve, the Department of Energy can take advantage of the licensed infrastructure and human resources we still have on standby.

Congress recently appropriated 75 million dollars for the uranium reserve on a bipartisan basis and with the support of nuclear utilities.

In closing, I applaud this Committee for exploring ways to advance America?s nuclear leadership and capabilities in support of clean energy goals, national security, and our global competitive presence.
