EM Update – EM Responding to Challenges, Positioning for New Era, Mullis Says at Conference

June 14, 2022 – EM has emerged from a challenging period with achievements under its belt and now is positioned for a new era of sustained progress in environmental cleanup, a program leader told a stakeholder and industry audience last week.

As it dealt with the COVID‐19 pandemic, “EM continued its important mission and realized a set of pivotal accomplishments across the country. It is thanks for many of you here today that we achieved these accomplishments and positioned EM for a new era,” said Jay Mullis, acting associate principal deputy assistant secretary for regulatory and policy affairs.

“I’m optimistic that building on our accomplishments, we can work this year to address some longstanding issues and advance EM further into this new era of steady and sustained progress for years to come,” Mullis said.

The EM official served as the keynote speaker at the 2022 RadWaste Summit, an annual conference focused on cleanup. A number of EM field managers and other program representatives also participated in the event. Link to Update
