Federal Power, States' Rights and Nuclear Waste: What Is A Just Solution?, analyzes the issue regarding the right of the federal government to construct a high level nuclear waste storage facility on federal land within a state that is opposed to a storage facility within state boundaries.

Finally, an analysis of the current laws regarding nuclear waste storage is presented, followed by policy recommendations for the use of nuclear energy and the storage of nuclear waste. Current policy is revised to achieve a more just solution with regard to the rights of states.
