Among the concerns outlined in the letter from ANS President Michaele (Mikey) Brady Raap is that "Section 402 would require NRC to discard its established regulatory framework in favor of mandatory security standards established by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Global Threat Reducation Initiative (GTRI) for "High Risk Radiological Material.""
