1Title:  Department of Energy FY 2010 Congressional budget request: National Nuclear Security Administration Add
 Summary:  This document describes the fiscal year 2010 budget request for Naval Reactors, as part of the larger National Nuclear Security Administration request. The Naval Reactors request for FY 2010 was just over one billion dollars. The document describes the major achievements of Naval Reactors in FY 2008, including the completion of sea trials for the USS George H.W. Bush, the last Nimitz-class carrier and the completion of 85 percent of the A1B design work for the successor class of nuclear-powered carriers. Additionally, two Virginia-class submarines were commissioned, bringing the total for the class to five. Several strategic areas are identified going forward, including a propulsion plant for the successor to the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines; the refueling of the S8G (Ohio) prototype plant; and, investing in the program's spent fuel processing infrastructure. Summaries of the work of the divisions within Naval Reactors are included in the budget request.

2Title:  United States Code Add
 Chapter title:  Title 50: Section 2511 
 Summary:  This section of the United States Code describes the administrative structure of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program. This structure was defined in Executive Order 12344, which was signed by President Ronald Reagan on February 1, 1982, the day following Admiral Hyman Rickover's forced retirement as head of the program. The executive order maintained the basic structure of the program as it existed during Rickover's 35 year tenure, defining it as "an integrated program carried out by two organizational units, one in the Department of Energy and the other in the Department of the Navy" (488). The responsibilities of the Director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion are stated in this section, along with the fact that either a military officer or civilian can be appointed to head the program. Finally, an important break with the Rickover era is also clearly stated in the executive order: an appointment as Director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion is term-limited to eight years; this term can be shortened or extended by mutual consent of the Navy and the Department of Energy.
