According to this
report from the FAS,
USEC fulfills about half its enrichment supply contracts with Russian HEU that has been blended down into LEU, which totaled 858 metric tons in
is the United States Enrichment Corp. Responsible for providing fuel
to the US power plants.
So half of the US fuel supply just disappeared. Good news for anyone seeking employment in the uranium enrichment field! This isn't really a surprise

Oh wait, this is the US corporate culture here. The plan probably consists of "well, lets just double the monthly quotas of our current employees!
What? Me? Why I've never been cynical a day in my life!
