This wasn't always the case, he said. Twenty years ago, when the NRC was in Denver, it relied on hydrologists in Wyoming for information.
NRC spokesman Dave McIntyre said that two full permits have been issued in Wyoming since 2007. And he added that it's a matter of resources because, "The boom in applications started in 2007, the economy Nike Cortez White Navy Red

Miller said that the idea of taking primacy came out of a nuclear energy task force of the Legislature. He said, "This was a question we brought up to industry folks if it was better if Wyoming became an agreement state. At the beginning they were noncommittal."
The move is called 'taking primacy" from the NRC, or becoming an "agreement state." A majority of states actually already are agreement states 37 of them, in fact, although Wyoming leads the country in uranium production, producing twice what the second state (Nebraska) produces.
By government standards, the timeline is very short. DEQ is expected to report to the Legislature's Joint Minerals, Business and Economic Development Committee on its findings in December, in time for possible action during the 2014 budget session of the state Legislature.
