Eric:
Thanks for publishing this prominently.
As the leader of a company that would like to build atomic engines that are a couple of orders of magnitude smaller than current central station electrical power plants, I advocate a revision of the fee structure to take into account the fact that not all power reactors are the same.
Our proposed plants are approximately the same size or even smaller than current test reactors, but they are definitely designed to produce power, so that do not fall into the "nonpower" reactor category.
I hope your readers notice the huge gap in fees between the test reactor and the power reactor categories.
