HB 52 (BR 243) - G. Watkins, W. Coursey, R. Heath
AN ACT relating to nuclear power.
Amend KRS 278.600 to define "storage" and require that nuclear power facilities have a plan for the storage of nuclear waste rather than a means for permanent disposal; amend KRS 278.610 to delete the requirement that the Public Service Commission certify the facility as having a means for disposal of high-level nuclear waste; change all references to the disposal of nuclear waste to the storage of nuclear waste; prohibit construction of low-level waste disposal sites in the Commonwealth, except as provided in KRS 211.852; require the Public Service Commission to determine whether the construction or operation of a nuclear power facility, including one constructed by entities regulated under KRS Chapter 96, would create low-level nuclear waste or mixed wastes that would be required to be disposed of in low-level waste disposal sites in the Commonwealth; repeal KRS 278.605.
