Short description: 
NUCLEAR SAFETY-SHIPMENT SRCHRG                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Nuclear  Safety  Preparedness  Act.  Provides      
   that  the  fees assessed for each rail shipment of spent nuclear fuel,      
   high-level radioactive waste,  or  transuranic  waste  traversing  the      
   State  or  received  at  or  departing from a nuclear power station or      
   away-from-reactor  spent  fuel,  high-level  radioactive   waste,   or      
   transuranic  waste  storage  facility  in  this State are assessed per      
   truck for each truck shipment rather than  per  cask  for  each  truck      
   shipment.  Provides  that  single cask truck shipments of greater than      
   250 miles in Illinois are subject to a surcharge of $25 per mile  over      
   250 miles for the first truck in each shipment. Effective immediately.      
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Nuclear Safety)                                
          Currently, the statute assesses a fee of $2,500 per cask for         
          each truck shipment. The bill redefines this assessment to           
          $2,500 per truck. Since a truck shipment only contains one           
          cask, this change has no fiscal impact. The bill also adds a         
          surcharge of $25 on each mile over 250 miles for longer ship-        
          ments, covering the Department's additional costs in inspect-        
          ing and escorting these longer shipments through the State.          
          Shipment fees collected totaled $9,000 in FY1999 and $17,500 in      
          FY2000. These fees have been and continue to be paid primarily       
          by out of state shippers.
