AUSTIN — State Rep. Lon Burnam is worried about countless trucks carrying low-level nuclear waste driving on local roads — likely Interstates 20 and 30 — on the way to a disposal site in Andrews County.
Already, Vermont is sending its waste to the West Texas site, and Burnam, D-Fort Worth, is afraid that without additional restrictions more states might follow suit.
“Over two-thirds of the nation’s nuclear waste will come through D-FW on its way to Andrews County,” he said. “The question is, are we taking it from two states or all of the states?”
