I agree with Rebekah that there is a great danger in appointing anyone to this role who is neither qualified nor truly motivated to do the job. It is another ‘what has trump wrought?’ concern. Anyone filling this role should be fully vetted and have non-partisan support. This is a National problem that warrants clear management. It is a tough issue; Ignoring it only makes the issue tougher. Managing spent fuel is a long-term problem that must be dealt with by having a long-term focus. Most politicians just want to kick the can down the road until someone else has to deal with it. Finding safe repository sites to collect the increasingly hazardous spent fuel dumps around most reactors is imperative. I believe having an 'administrator' to focus on finding permanent storage methods, sites and transport protocols is the only way to keep reminding Congress of it's obligations to protect our people from hazardous growing waste stockpiles that are getting too large to safely manage. I support this. I am a little concerned about relying on private interests to deal with this but agree it should be an option. Yucca mountain should be re-visited as well as other central repositories along with a highly regulated safe and reliable site-to-site transport protocol.
