The two senators are right - the NRC is taking to long to grant license extensions. And, as koz has correctly stated, they just skimmed the tip of the iceberg.
Unnecessary licensing delays have greatly increased the cost of new power plants also. A delay of a few years can add $ billions to the cost.
Of course we want all nuclear plants to be safe, but there is no excuse for unnecessarily running up costs with unnecessary delays.

The Communist led anti-nuke hysteria that gripped the nation and still affects the perception of many voters and EPA/NRC types was based in falsehood, as are so many of the assertions of the radical Left and Democrats. The absolute insanity and falsehoods permeated a generation of dope smoking idiots, who because of the anti-Americanism preached by people like Linda Ronstadt at anti-nuke rallies, self-validated (along with Jew haters like Jimmy Carter) a mindset responsible for every set-back and ultimate bankruptcy of the nation for forty friggin' years! The anti-nuke rallies with hippie freaks and dropouts guiding them were breeding grounds for pro-radical terrorist Muslim propaganda, but the dope smoking Liberal idiots thought it was only about buying an occasional falafel. Those idiots didn't know squat about nuclear technology and its advancements, but hampered America, while empowering nutcases in Iran and N. Korea. Here's the zinger... Those dopeheads actually believe they are making a social comment and helping the nation and world by killing their own babies! That's how totally lost they are.
