If this has been posted already, sorry:


A District Court Court rules on DOE nuclear waste fund -against the legal
basis for DOE collecting fees. DOE must justify consumers adding to $30
billion collected [at rate of $0.01/kwhr ] to date since it cancelled Yucca.
Wow, do those pennies add up!!  See:




Excerpt from above:

The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) called
the court decision an "important victory."

"The court made clear that the Energy Department has not justified continued
payments into the Nuclear Waste Fund," said NARUC President David Wright.
"Today's decision will force the Energy Department to do its job and prove
why it should continue fees for a nuclear-waste program that it says no
longer exists. We believe the evidence demonstrates that until and unless a
new nuclear-waste policy is developed, consumers should be given a break."
