Nuclear waste could be headed to West Texas under house bill

As reported by James Osborne in the Houston Chronicle.

While the article focuses on the Waste Control Specialists, LLC (WCS) and Orano (formerly Areva, and before that, Cogema) of France's proposal for a centralized interim storage facility (CISF) for 40,000 metric tons of irradiated nuclear fuel in Andrews County, west Texas, and the breakdown of votes amongst Texan U.S. Representatives for or against H.R. 3053 (the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 2018), the article also mentions the Holtec/ELEA, NM CISF proposal towards the end.
