Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

A bill in the Missouri House is intended to discourage shipments of radioactive waste through the state.

Sponsored by Sen. Kurt Schaefer, R-Columbia, the bill would require all shipments of radioactive waste traveling in and through the state to be assessed fees. The Senate already approved it by unanimous consent.

Currently, Missouri doesn’t charge fees for the transport of radioactive waste products.
