WGA Policy Resolution 2018–10 Transportation, Storage and Disposal of Radioactive Waste, Radioactive Materials and Spent Nuclear Fuel: Western Governors’ support the U.S. Department of Energy’s safe and uneventful transport of radioactive materials, accomplished through DOE’s ongoing compliance with federal radioactive waste transport safety requirements and early coordination and effective communication with state, tribal and local governments.  This resolution, which consolidates previous WGA policies, also affirms that no radioactive waste storage or disposal facility should be located within the geographic boundaries of a western state or U.S. territory without the written consent of the Governor. Read, download the resolution.
