Faibish appointed Fellow to Senate Committee

Ron Faibish

Ron Faibish, principal nuclear engineer at Argonne, has been appointed the new Science Fellow with the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. In this role, Ron will advise the committee on issues that primarily relate to nuclear energy and applications (e.g., nuclear waste management, reactor technology, isotope technology and applications, and overall future science and policy matters concerning deployment of nuclear power plants and implementation of nuclear energy projects). Ron will be working closely with all relevant external stakeholders (e.g., government, industry, academia, and others) in recommending the best science and engineering informed decisions that affect future related legislation. In addition, Ron will also be expected to advise the Committee on other general science and engineering related issues as needed.

Since its creation, the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources and its predecessors have considered, reported, and overseen some of the most important legislation ever enacted by the United States Congress. This far-reaching legislative activity can be described in the following major areas: energy resources and development, including regulation, conservation, strategic petroleum reserves and appliance standards; nuclear energy; Indian affairs; public lands and their renewable resources; surface mining, Federal coal, oil, and gas, other mineral leasing; territories and insular possessions; and water resources.
