Lincoln County, Nevada; Denial of Petition for Rulemaking
Document Number: E7-25299
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-12-28
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC is denying a petition for rulemaking submitted March 23, 2007, by Lincoln County, Nevada, related to its potential participation as an affected unit of local government (AULG) in the NRC proceeding concerning the Department of Energy's proposed repository for high-level radioactive waste at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. Lincoln County desires an amendment to 10 CFR 2.314(b) to allow it and other AULGs to be represented in the proceeding by any duly authorized individual, including a non-attorney consultant. The Commission is denying the petition as unnecessary because the current regulations allow Lincoln County the representation it seeks.
