Bill InformationEdit

Title: An ACT relating to nuclear power.

Sponsor: Sen. Danny Carroll

Date Introduced: 13 January 2016

What Does It Do?Edit

SB89 proposes for there to be a change in nuclear waste requirements. Rather than requiring nuclear power facilities to have a means for permanent storage, it allows such facilities to only be required to have a plan for storage of nuclear waste. It also eliminates the requirement of making known the cost of waste disposal, and it differentiates between the terms "low-level nuclear waste" and "mixed nuclear waste."

This bill is mostly Republican leaning.
