US legislation that established an insurance scheme for nuclear power that is backed by taxpayers. It limits the amount of insurance that nuclear power plant owners must carry, and shields nuclear power from free market forces by capping the liability of nuclear power plant owners in the event of a catastrophic accident or attack at levels which are significantly lower than likely costs.
