Nevada panel OKs $1M to fight Yucca Mountain plans

CARSON CITY — A state panel on Tuesday approved nearly $1 million more to pay for legal costs to continue Nevada’s fight against a nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain.

The Board of Examiners approved the $995,000 increase in the contract with the Virginia legal firm Egan & Associates. The third amendment to the contract will bring the total value of the deal to nearly $8.5 million through March 30, 2018.

The contract is funded through the Nevada Attorney General’s office and will provide ongoing outside counsel to assist with the Yucca Mountain litigation and to represent the state.
