Texas' Nuclear Waste Dump Poised to Get Wiggle Room

Texas’ only radioactive waste dump is poised to get permission to dramatically expand its capacity, take in new types of waste and reduce its financial liability should its owner suddenly close up shop.

That’s despite a last-ditch protest from a state lawmaker who worries the move will jeopardize Texans’ health and put their tax dollars at risk.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality on Wednesday will consider major changes to a license held by Waste Control Specialists, which operates one of the few low-level radioactive waste disposal sites in the United States.   http://www.texastribune.org/2014/08/20/texas-nuclear-waste-dump-poised-get-wiggle-room/
