"DOE Launches Nuclear Waste Disposal Initiative"

"The Department of Energy is formally launching its initiative aimed at establishing a disposal site for spent nuclear fuel.

The department said Monday that it is accepting input on the disposal plan, which centers on finding at least one place to store spent fuel, with the consent of the local community.

Officials are also planning forums throughout 2016 to inform a more concrete plan for establishing a disposal site."
