Committee on High-Level Radioactive Waste (NRS 459.0085)
In 1985, the Nevada Legislature created the Committee on High-Level Radioactive Waste along with the Commission on Nuclear Projects and the Agency for Nuclear Projects to conduct oversight of the Yucca Mountain Program. The Committee's duties include studying and evaluating: (1) Information and policies concerning locating a high-level waste disposal facility in Nevada; (2) Any potential adverse effects from the construction of such a facility and means by which those effects might be mitigated; and (3) Recommendations concerning relevant legislation to be presented to the Legislature. The Committee also provides a forum for discussion of high-level radioactive waste issues with government officials, special interest groups, and the public.
