The Casper Star Tribune reports that “Wyoming legislators aired a draft bill Thursday that would transfer oversight of the local uranium industry to state regulators.”  

“The move is the first in a years-long process to obtain what is known as “agreement state status.” The Nuclear Regulatory Commission regulates uranium mining but will transfer oversight to states that seek the responsibility.”  

“In exchange, states must agree to follow federal standards and prove they have the capability to regulate the industry.”
