The article reports that Nevada's two senators have introduced legislation aimed at derailing construction of the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository in their state. Senators Harry Reid and John Ensign introduced a measure on December 14, 2005, that would mandate nuclear waste be stored on-site where it is produced and require the federal government to take responsibility for maintaining and monitoring the waste. For more than two decades, the U.S. government has been planning to build a central storage site in the Nevada desert for spent fuel from the nation's nuclear reactors.
