RE: Revision of Atomic Energy Act - NRC to Regulate Accelerator Produced?

The original Dirty Bomb Prevention Act was draftd by Senator Clinton and it aimed to help add to the security of radioactive sources.  In the process of researching the bill, it was noted that only NRC-regulated materials were covered, leaving NORM and NARM unaddressed.  The most obvious solution to this was to add NORM and NARM isotopes to those regulated by the NRC.
