Advisory group to study waste disposal standards

LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Rick Snyder is putting together a panel of experts to review the state's standards for disposing low-level radioactive material.

The action was prompted by a "Detroit Free Press" article revealing a Wayne County landfill was preparing to accept what's called naturally-occurring radioactive waste from Pennsylvania. That deal is now off, and the Department of Environmental Quality will handle the review.

A bill is set to be introduced in the state Senate seeking to ban the acceptance of the radioactive waste.
