Initially what I find disturbing is this He Said / She Said, sorry...Republican / Democrat approach to how nuclear waste should be handled. I really don't understand why everything we do needs to be spit along party lines. Who speaks for all of us that fall in the middle? At any rate I will try to keep on a happy face and hope that this early derision does not mean there will be no forward movement on this issue.
In a nutshell here are the top three recommendations being reported in the news coming from the Blue Ribbon Commission:
- Interim Storage for Spent Nuclear Fuel
- Resumption of site selection process for a second repository
- Set up a quasi-government entity, or FedCorp, to execute the program and take control of the Nuclear Waste Fund.
I'm off to read the report - more on this issue later.
