(KRNV & MyNews4.com) Pahrump - The Department of Energy has held the second meeting about bringing nuclear waste to Nevada from Tennessee. Storing is not the only issue residents are worried about, transportation, is also something on Pahrump residents’ minds as a shipment could come as early as next year.
U.S. Energy Department officials say Nevada doesn't have the authority to prevent shipments of uranium waste from Oak Ridge, Tenn., to the Nevada National Security Site north of Las Vegas. Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval says it's premature to say whether the state will sue to block the shipments. Project administrators say shipments could begin in January.
