Public comment re Price-Anderson Act

Notice of Inquiry Concerning Preparation of Report to Congress on the Price-Anderson Act, 62 Federal Register 250. Princeton University Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) strongly supports the continuation of the provisions of the Price-Anderson Act for DOE contractors and suppliers, including the exemption of PPPL from the payment of civil penalties. It is our procurement experience at PPPL that certain subcontractors expect Price-Anderson protection and will not contract with the Laboratory without it.
