Nevada Public Health and Safety
Sec. § 459.211
Fees for operation or use of areas for storage and disposal owned by State; fee for revenue.

The State Board of Health shall establish by regulation:


License fees and any other fees for the operation of state-owned areas in an amount sufficient to defray all costs of monitoring, securing or otherwise regulating the storage or disposal of radioactive materials. The person who contracts with the State for the operation of such an area is responsible for the payment of these fees.


Procedures for the collection of interest on delinquent fees and other accounts for the operation of disposal areas.


Penalties of no more than $3,000 per day for each separate failure to comply with an agreement, license, regulation or statute governing the operation of a disposal area.


License fees and other fees for the use of such an area to store or dispose of radioactive materials, which are chargeable against shippers or brokers in amounts sufficient to defray the costs to the State of inspecting, monitoring, securing or otherwise regulating their use of the area. In addition, the Board may establish by regulation a fee chargeable against shippers and brokers for revenue for the State of Nevada. Before establishing a fee for revenue, the Board must consider the amounts of the fees for licensing and disposal which are chargeable against the users of such areas in other states, in order that a shipper or broker be neither encouraged nor discouraged from disposing of such waste in this State, and that he or she base his or her decision about where to dispose of the waste primarily on the cost of transportation to the areas which are available for disposal. The regulations adopted pursuant to this subsection may include a method for the collection of fees from the users of an area, and each of the fees may be a percentage of the fee paid by a user to the operator of the area. The Board shall report to the Legislature at the end of January of odd-numbered years the amounts of revenue paid to the State for the use of such areas in the preceding biennium.
