Dear Mr. Paladin,
I read your NRC comments regarding Holtec and wanted to make contact and share information. The US cannot prove ownership to the proposed Yucca Mountain repository after $15 billion spent because the Western Bands of the Shoshone Nation of Indians own the property interests under the US Constitution Article 6 Section 2 treaty supremacy clause. Therefore, without the proposed Yucca Mountain site, the Holtec Consolidated Interim Storage Facility in NM is illegal and would in fact become a de facto permanent nuclear waste repository. Also, 200,000 lbs of Shoshone irradiated soil was removed and placed in a cement dome at Bikini Atoll that is now leaking into the Pacific Ocean. We have the only ratified treaty in California and we seek to litigate solutions. Please contact me if you have time for a consultation. Sincerely, Principal Man Ian Zabarte, Western Bands of the Shoshone Nation of Indians. (702) 203-8816 or firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.nativecommunityactioncouncil.org

Subject: Nuclear waste disposal: U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission extends public comment period for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement on Holtec’s CISF.
To: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, NRC. Nuclear waste disposal in New Mexico.
E-mail: Holtec-CISFEIS @ nrc .gov,
I am against storing nuclear waste at the Lea County, New Mexico site because it is not safe to do so and it is not economical.
The cost to store nuclear waste is not worth the benefit of electricity which is produced with nuclear power. There should be a transition to renewable energy sources, including wind, solar, ocean and geothermal, as soon as possible.
Taxpayers should not be subsidizing nuclear energy by having to pay for disposal of nuclear waste.
Nuclear energy production creates waste that is very expensive to store for very long periods of time, for many centuries, and is unsafe to store. Nuclear energy production should be stopped for those reasons.
You should also take steps as soon as possible to clean up unsafe nuclear waste sites at Moab, Utah, near the Colorado River, which supplies water to many millions of people, at Hanford, Washington and at the Bikini Atoll nuclear waste site.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff has extended the public comment period for the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on Holtec International’s proposed Consolidated Interim Storage Facility (CISF) for spent nuclear fuel in Lea County, New Mexico, for an additional 60 days. The new and final deadline for submitting comments is September 22, 2020. It is the NRC staff’s goal to hold in-person public meetings in New Mexico. The NRC staff will continue to monitor the public health emergency, and reassess these plans based on local circumstances.
Additionally, the NRC staff will be holding webinars on Tuesday, June 23, 2020; and on July 9, 2020, from 5 pm – 9 pm EDT (3 pm – 7 pm MDT) to present the findings of the report and receive comments from the public. Webinar details for the June 23 meeting are available at: nrc. gov/pmns/mtg?do=details&Code=20200641. Webinar details for the July 9 meeting will also be available in the near future at: https://www.nrc.gov/pmns/mtg.
Members of the public can also continue to provide comments on the draft EIS to the NRC via:
