The Leadership in Nuclear Energy Commission was created by Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter through Executive Order 2012-01. The Commission is charged with making recommendations to the Governor on policies and actions of the state of Idaho to support and enhance the long-term viability and mission relevance of the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and the broader nuclear industry in the state. Recent evaluations by Idaho's Commerce and Labor departments have identified a robust and expansive nuclear industries sector in the state—anchored by INL—that consists of more than 20 firms that employ thousands of Idahoans, contribute millions of dollars to Idaho's general fund and help realize our state's goal of achieving Project 60. The LINE Commission publicly released both an Executive Summary and a Full Report on February 6, 2013.
All LINE Commission meetings are open to the public.
