NRDC Lawsuit Filed Against the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Challenging a New Rule on Extended Waste Storage and the Related Environmental Impact Statement

Natural Resources Defense Council filed a lawsuit today in the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit challenging the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission decision to proceed with an “extended waste storage rule” and a generic environmental impact statement, arguing that the NRC failed to comply with a 2012 federal court ruling against the NRC.
