However Sharp disagreement is expected on defense and other economic issues Likely to be raised.

A tortuous two year route through four House committees in making its Way to the floor. The Senate already has approved a Bill on the Issue. Sponsors say that unless the lame session of Congress acts on the measure it will go Back to the spor Duck s starting blocks next year a and the nation May spend another two years without a permanent plan for disposing of its growing stockpile of highly radioactive nuclear waste rep.

Utility companies say Power plants Are running out of room the Bill sets up an interim storage plan described As a last resort for reactors that need space but opponents say utilities Are Likely to make it preferred storage rather than spend the Money to expand existing Cooling Ponds the second Type of storage would provide Long term facilities As a Back up to permanent disposal these Sites could hold wastes for 50 to 100 years if the permanent site is delayed. Opponents argue however that the Bill requires less environmental scrutiny and fewer licensing safeguards for the interim Sites than a permanent employee found outside Hospital school and monday morning Are not the exciting activities for two seventh graders at Corbin Middle school.
