   1998  or 1999.  Increases certain fees for the transportation of spent      
   nuclear fuel or high-level radioactive waste.  Assesses the same  fees      
   upon  the  transportation  of  transuranic waste.  Provides that those      
   fees shall be paid by the  shipper  rather  than  the  owners  of  the      
   facilities.   Provides  that  moneys  in  the Nuclear Safety Emergency      
   Preparedness Fund may be used to support activities  of  the  Illinois

   of  low-level  radioactive  waste  through  State  fiscal  year  2003.      
   Effective immediately.                                                      
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Nuclear Safety)                                
          The bill increases the fees per nuclear power reactor paid           
          annually to the Dept. of Nuclear Safety. The annual fee would        
          increase by $249,455 per reactor in FY2001, by $231,636 in           
          FY2002 and by $212,727 in FY2003 and subsequent years. With the      
          announced closing of the Zion Nuclear Power Station's two            
          reactors, net revenues will decline by $150,000 in FY2001,           
          $450,000 in FY2002 and $750,000 in FY2003 and subsequent years,      
          even with this rate increase.                                        
          The bill also increases the fees assessed to shippers of spent       
          nuclear fuel, high-level radioactive waste or transuranic waste      
          through or within the State. The fee for each truck shipment         
          will increase to $2,500. The current fee is $1,000. The fee for      
          the first cask on a train shipment will be $4,500, with addi-        
          tional casks assessed at $3,000. The current fee is $2,000 per       
          cask. Fewer than ten shipments were made during each of the          
          past two fiscal years.                                               
          No fees are increased or costs are added for the Low-Level Ra-       
          dioactive Waste Mangement Act. Any nuclear power reactor having      
          an operating license during any portion of State fiscal year         
          1998 must continue to pay annual fees due for all State fiscal       
          years through 2003.
