The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is denying, in part, a petition for rulemaking (PRM 73-10) submitted by the State of Nevada on June 22, 1999. The NRC will consider the remainder of the petition in the rulemaking process. The petitioner requested that NRC amend its regulations governing safeguards for shipments of spent nuclear fuel against sabotage and terrorism. The petitioner also requested that the NRC conduct a comprehensive assessment of the consequences of terrorist attacks that have the capability of radiological sabotage, including attacks against transportation infrastructure used during nuclear waste shipments, attacks involving capture of nuclear waste shipments and use of high energy explosives against a cask or casks, and direct attacks upon a nuclear waste shipping cask or casks using antitank missiles or other military weapons. This action closes the docket for PRM-73-10.
