Written by: Christine Csizmadia, Senior Director of State Governmental Affairs and Advocacy and NFWL Board MemberIt’s only February, and so far this year, NEI is tracking more than 100 bills related to nuclear energy. Building on the historic momentum seen in legislatures across the country last year, 2023 is proving to be just as significant as policymakers continue to turn to nuclear energy as the solution to energy woes.2022 was an unprecedented year for nuclear policy in the U.S. with 19 states considering legislation and 12 states enacting policies to support existing and new nuclear generation. Although we are just weeks into 2023, here are the biggest legislative trends we are already seeing in state capitals:

3. Workforce Development
4. Clean Energy Standards
5. Studying Nuclear Energy
