The open comment period is from April 20, 2020 to July 20, 2020.
The NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Commission) may change its rules to allow the nuclear industry to dump some of its waste in landfills. A proposal is on the table to reclassify low-level radioactive waste making it possible for it to be accepted at dumps and hazardous waste sites instead of being stored at regulated facilities.
Please see this link below for the proposal and opportunity to comment.
