Fiscal Notes

Estimated Two ¬≠year Net Impact to General Revenue Related Funds for HB2692, Committee Report 1st House, Substituted : a negative impact of ($798,000) through the biennium ending August 31, 2023.

The bill would make no appropriation but could provide the legal basis for an appropriation of funds to implement the provisions of the bill.


Bill Analysis

HB 2692 would ban the disposal of or storage of high-level radioactive waste or spent nuclear fuel in Texas except only for on-site storage by current and former operating nuclear reactors and nuclear test reactors located on university campuses.

The bill would update regulations regarding low-level radioactive waste to make the regulations more consistent with current needs and to modernize the regulations to make them more relevant to current market conditions. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on HB 2692 as it does not impact our liberty principles.
