    This image released by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission shows commissioner Kristine L. Svinicki in Washington, March 17, 2008. Senate Republicans are chiding the White House for failing to renominate Svinicki, who publicly complained that the panel?s Democratic chairman was an intimidating bully. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky denounced the ?curious lack of action?? on Svinicki?s reappointment to the NRC and called further delay unacceptable. Svinicki and three other NRC commissioners complained publicly to Congress last year that NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko?s actions could compromise nuclear safety. (AP Photo/NRC)

Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, left, with Senate Minority Leader, Republican Mitch McConnell of Ky., talks to reporters about the trade bills undergoing a vote on Capitol Hill in Washington.
