ABSTRACT
The article reports on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's version of the energy bill, which will put an end to the Yucca Mountain high-level radioactive waste project in Nevada. According to Reid, who sought for a 27 million dollar cut from Yucca's 2010 license application funding in the Energy and Water Appropriations bill, the only appropriation for Yucca will be utilized to end the work being conducted at the site. Reid contended that there are no more funds to support such project.
