The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has launched a two-step review of U.S. nuclear power plants in the wake of the nuclear crisis in Japan, according to an article on the HuffingtonPost green blog.

The commission voted Wednesday to set up a task force, made up of senior staff and former NRC experts, that will conduct short-term and long-term analyses of lessons learned from Japan. The reports also will address how lessons can be applied to the 104 U.S. nuclear reactors.
