H.R. 3053: Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 2017

Author's Summary: "To amend the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, and for other purposes."

IB's Summary: This bill would restart the process towards using Yucca Mountain, NV, as the sole permanent repository in the US for highly radioactive waste (from power plants and weapons facilities). Nevada politicians are vociferously opposed to this, and politicians from states with nuclear waste in need of storage (incl. CO) generally support it.
