  • Yucca Mountain remains in debate over nuclear waste storage
    Tuesday, January 18, 2022 1:00 AM
    Mounting opposition to proposed nuclear waste storage sites in Texas and New Mexico has kept Yucca Mountain in Nevada in the national debate over what to do with the growing stockpile of radioactive material scattered around the country.
    The Biden administration is opposed to Yucca Mountain and announced plans this month to send waste to places where state, local and tribal governments agree to accept it. That stance is shared by Nevada elected officials, tribal leaders and business and environmental groups.

That debate would have been symbolic since it coincided with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the national holiday commemorating the civil rights hero's life.
