State officials have given final approval to a plan allowing radioactive waste from across the country to be brought to Texas for storage. For StateImpact Texas, KUT’s Mose Buchele reports that the waste has people watching its transportation and storage closely.

We also want to make sure that it’s packaged properly, and that somebody is looking at all of those aspects.

Listen to the news story at KUT.
