Letter to Honoarable Joe Straus, Speaker of the House, and Honorable David Dewhust, Lieutenant Governor, on challenges of spent nuclear fuel management at 6 Texas nuclear reactors

In this letter, Governor Perry requests that the Texas legislature develop a solution for the management of spent nuclear fuel within Texas, since current federal plans for spent nuclear fuel disposal are not credible. The report by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, which summarizes spent nuclear fuel management in the US, is attached to the letter as a reference resource.
