It’s a big week for the nuclear world with top officials from around the globe descending on the nation’s capital to discuss the state of the industry and security at two large nuclear summits. Meanwhile, Congress is enjoying an Easter/spring break this week, with the Senate coming back April 4, and the House returning April 11.
