Prev Article 1. - POWERS OF STATE CORPORATION COMMISSIONNext


66-128n.Nuclear power generating facilities; decommissioning financing plan; hearings; approval or rejection of plan. (a) The state corporation commission shall hold a public hearing in accordance with the provisions of the Kansas administrative procedure act on each proposed decommissioning financing plan submitted under K.S.A. 66-128m and amendments thereto. The commission may hold such hearing in conjunction with rate proceedings filed by an owner of the facility.

(b) The commission shall approve such a plan if it finds that the licensee has provided reasonable assurances that: (1) The estimated time of closing of the nuclear power generating facility and the estimated cost of decommissioning are reasonable; (2) the licensee and the owners of the facility can adequately fund the decommissioning; (3) the share of the estimated cost of decommissioning for each owner of the facility is reasonable; (4) the plans and options for insuring against or otherwise financing any shortfall in decommissioning funds resulting from a premature closing are adequate and reasonable; (5) the owners are legally bound to accept their respective shares of the ultimate financial responsibility for decommissioning as provided under K.S.A. 66-128p and amendments thereto; and (6) the plan will periodically be reviewed and revised to reflect more closely the costs and available techniques for decommissioning. This update shall occur at least every five years.

(c) If the commission finds that the decommissioning plan does not meet the criteria under subsection (b), it shall reject the plan and order that it be modified as the commission deems necessary to meet such criteria.
