Vermont plans payment for nuclear waste disposal

Print More

Vermont is expected to pay Texas $12.5 million next month, for taking in the state’s low-level radioactive waste. That payment is planned despite the fact that Texas has failed to win approval for a disposal site.

Auditor of Accounts Elizabeth Ready told a legislative committee Monday that it should ask plenty of questions before sending the money. Entergy Nuclear will refund most of the payment for the waste disposal. Entergy owns the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant.
