DOE'S YUCCA PLAN

As reported by Politico:

DOE'S YUCCA PLAN: The Energy Department suggested appropriators give Energy Secretary Rick Perry broad authority to collect up to $120 million in unassigned agency funds to restart work on the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste project, according to a recent set of documents prepared for lawmakers and seen by Pro's Darius Dixon. In the documents, DOE staff offer legislative language that would allow Perry to use "any unobligated balances available to the Secretary" to raise the $120 million for restarting the nuclear waste program.
