Virginia Nuclear Energy Consortium. Establishes the Virginia Nuclear Energy Consortium Authority as a political subdivision of the Commonwealth for the purposes of making the Commonwealth a national and global leader in nuclear energy and serving as an interdisciplinary study, research, and information resource for the Commonwealth on nuclear energy issues. The 17-member board of directors of the Authority is directed to form a nonstock, nonprofit corporation, referred to as the Virginia Nuclear Energy Consortium. Membership in the Consortium is open to specified educational institutions, Virginia-based federal research laboratories, nuclear-related nonprofit organizations, business entities with operating facilities in Virginia that are engaged in activities directly related to the nuclear energy industry, and other persons whose membership is approved by the Consortium's board of directors. The purposes of the Consortium include carrying out the rights, powers, and duties of the Authority and conducting other activities useful in (i) making the Commonwealth a leader in nuclear energy, (ii) serving as an interdisciplinary study, research, and information resource for the Commonwealth on nuclear energy issues, and (iii) raising money on behalf of the Authority in the corporate and nonprofit community and from other nonstate sources. The Consortium is required to report to the Authority on its non-proprietary activities semiannually, and audits of its financial accounts shall be made available in accordance with the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. This bill is identical to SB 1138.
