NRC Preparing to Resume Yucca Mountain License Review

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has directed agency staff to spend up to $110,000 of previously appropriated Nuclear Waste Fund money on information-gathering activities aimed at preparing for the resumption of the Yucca Mountain licensing review. The money would support a virtual meeting of an advisory panel and initial steps to identify potential hearing sites.

My thoughts on initially hearing of this resumption of the effort, and the obligatory efforts to make it next to impossible to achieve, maybe a ploy to defeat or at least delay the lawsuits.

$110,000/6 hour meeting = $18,333.34 per hour
$18,333.34/10 person panel = $1,833.34 per hour


You think this is unreasonable? How is this industry being out-priced by every other source? [sarcasm]


Guess the "Nuclear Promise" doesn't apply to the Feds. SO we continue to wait for the Feds to give us the facility that was mandated by federal law decades ago, and financed by the industry and their ratepayers.


At least there is plenty of good work in the ISFSI mods.
