The author comments on the proposed nuclear waste repository in Yucca Mountain, Nevada, which was addressed in a legislative hearing held by the Agency Against Nuclear Projects. Agency director Bruce Breslow stated that there was no money for Yucca. The author says the problem with the anti-Yucca people is that they do not tell the truth. He argues that money is there for Nevada in exchange for Yucca. He notes the introduction of an amendment to a bill whereby the state will receive $500 million a year in exchange for the repository.
