July 17 (UPI) -- In a bid to save money, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has recommended reducing the number of inspections it performs for nearly 100 reactors at dozens of nuclear power plants across the United States.

The NRC made the recommendation in a policy report released Tuesday.

The commission's report said a revised timeline should require plant inspections every three years, instead of every other year on the current Reactor Oversight Process schedule. The NRC also advised cutting the extent of the inspections.
