The senior senator from New Mexico had not seen the new report by the Government Accountability Office early this week.A radio reporter asked Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M., during his customary Tuesday teleconference what he thought about the GAO review that said the energy department has not yet finished plans to consolidate “nuclear bomb fuel.”The report in question was about “Securing U.S. Nuclear Material.” It was released this week in response to a request by senior Republican members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. Rep. Joe Barton of Texas and Rep. Ed Whitfield of Kentucky asked GAO last year to check on DOE’s plans and report back on whether those plans could be accomplished on schedule and within budget.When first asked about it, Domenici said he wasn’t ready to answer.“We’re just going to have to take a look and see what that’s all about,” he said. “It’s never come to me as something that is a show-stopper.”He promised to take a look and put out a release if it was something serious.“I don’t think it is,” he said.
