|Subject:||Nuclear Site Annual Fee Increase|
|In the near future, I plan on introducing legislation amending the Radiation Protection Act to increase the annual fee of $550,000 for all current nuclear power reactor sites to $650,000. My legislation would make the new fees effective July 1st 2015.
Act 31 of 2007 gave the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) the authority to charge nuclear power plants a fee to protect the public safety of those living and working around nuclear power plants. DEP financial assessment indicates that a $100k per year fee increase per site is necessary.
Introduced as SB1355
