ABSTRACT
The article deals with the objection of nuclear utilities to pay for a nuclear waste repository in the U.S. They argue that the payments should be suspended since the plan to build a nuclear waste repository at the Yucca Mountain site in Nevada is being abandoned by the U.S. government. Utilities have been paying for a nuclear waste repository since the early 1980s. The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) said in its letter to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) that the fee is well beyond adequate.
