In his first initial budget proposal, Trump designated $120 million to restart licensing activities for the permanent and interim storage of waste at Yucca Mountain, although Congress ultimately will determine what happens.
Fulfilling a campaign promise to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who has long fought location of the storage site in his home state, Obama established a new policy that any nuclear waste site needs the consent of the local and state governments, effectively blocking further work on the Yucca Mountain project.

Seven hydrology and geochemistry studies form a companion volume to the 2007 Geology and Climatology of Yucca Mountain and Vicinity.
