"Tensions at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the nation’s chief overseer of civilian nuclear materials, finally boiled over into public finger-pointing and accusations of malfeasance late Friday -- creating what one lawmaker called 'a regulatory meltdown.' It’s a messy conflict, but one thing is clear: the nuclear industry has many friends on the NRC."
