1Title:  Department of Energy FY 2009 Congressional budget request: National Nuclear Security Administration Add
 Summary:  This document provides a detailed summary of the Naval Reactors budget request for fiscal year 2009. NR's total budget request for FY 2009 was $828.1 million. The request notes that "the program's number-one priority is ensuring the safety and reliability of the 103 operating naval reactor plants" (549). The request includes development support for the Virginia-class fast attack submarine reactor and the CVN 21-class (or A1B) reactor plant. The request for the "Evaluation and Servicing" section was significantly increased from the previous fiscal year due to maintenance and assessment costs at the Idaho National Laboratory's Expended Core Facility. The request notes the resources that NR draws upon, including the Bettis and Knolls laboratories and the Advanced Test Reactor (ATR) at the Idaho National Laboratory.

3Title:  USS Philadelphia, Los Angeles-class attack submarine Add
 Summary:  The USS Philadelphia at the Naval Submarine Base, New London, Connecticut. The Philadelphia was the first Los Angeles-class attack submarine constructed at General Dynamics Electric Boat. The USS Los Angeles, the lead boat in a new class of high-speed attack submarines, was built by Newport News Shipbuilding. This represented a change in the construction of nuclear submarines - not only was the Los Angeles the lead boat in her class, but it was powered by a newly-designed reactor plant, the S6G. Electric Boat, which constructed the Nautilus, Seawolf, and Skipjack, had the most experience with this type of developmental submarine construction, but the construction of the Los Angeles was awarded to Newport News (which, like Electric Boat, is a private sector shipyard).

4Title:  Addendum to 1995 settlement agreement Add
 Summary:  This is an addendum to the 1995 joint settlement agreement regarding spent fuel processing activities at the Idaho National Laboratory's Expended Core Facility (ECF). The parties to the agreement and its addendum include the State of Idaho, the Department of Energy, and the United States Navy. It clarifies how the Naval Reactors program can use the ECF for spent fuel processing. The addendum explicitly states that "all Naval spent fuel shipped to Idaho after January 1, 2035, must meet the national security requirements" described in the 1995 settlement (1). It also defines specific spent fuel volumes that may be maintained at the facility. For example, metric tons limits are stated for fuel being used for examination and "queuing for shipment to a repository or storage facility outside Idaho" (2). As with the original 1995 settlement agreement, the addendum supports the work of the joint Navy-Department of Energy Naval Reactors program in its spent fuel processing activities at the ECF, while reducing the ability to use the INL for the long-term storage of spent reactor fuel.
