Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Federal and state governments may be headed toward a collision over a key aspect in the development of nuclear power. Antinuclear groups in California are pressing for a law that would ban nuclear power plants unless Congress removes the present legal limitations on the damages payable in the event of a nuclear accident. But Congress, far from repealing the limitation (mandated by the Price-Anderson nuclear insurance law), recently voted to extend it. The skirmish on Capitol Hill over the Price-Anderson law is analyzed in the first of the following articles; the events that have made the California proposition possible are discussed in the second.
