Commissioners Want to Move Forward with Yucca Mountain Licensing

The Board of County Commissioners would like to see the Nuclear Regulatory Commission continue the licensing process at Yucca Mountain -- a move that could eventually green-light the storage of mass quantities of radioactive waste at the Nye County site. Commissioner Leo Blundo proposed a resolution supporting efforts to complete the Yucca Mountain licensing process. He says the project could be a huge economic win for the state. Commissioner Donna Cox expressed some concern over using Yucca Mountain as a central storage point for all of the country's radioactive waste. But after a brief discussion commissioners unanimously approved the resolution. Eight other Nevada counties have passed similar resolutions supporting the completion of the Yucca Mountain licensing process.
