On February 27, Senate Energy Committee Chairman Wyden (D-OR) said he and Ranking Member Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) are drafting legislation that would address how to manage the nation’s spent nuclear fuel and other high-level radioactive waste. The legislation, expected to be unveiled later this month, would be modeled on legislation introduced last Congress by former Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-NM), but would likely prioritize interim storage of nuclear waste and would remain silent on nuclear fuel recycling.
