Changes at the NRC

For those following the Yucca Mountain controversy, nuclear energy policy, and the fascinating administrative law story of the NRC:  last week, Allison M. Macfarlane, a geologist who is considered an expert in the back end of the fuel cycle, was approved by the Senate as the new chair of the Commission.  She follows Gregory Jaczko, who was instrumental in halting the Yucca Mountain Project and who resigned in May.  Any predictions about what the new chair will bring?
