Summary: SB 791 would allow the Texas radioactive waste disposal facility to accept waste from more sources than it currently does. It would also require the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and Department of State Health Services to use dedicated funds and a new account to manage the new sources of waste that the facility will be responsible for.
Analysis: SB 791 limits government by allowing more private companies to transport waste to this facility, however it creates fees and regulations to go along with the new allowances. We are neutral on this legislation.
