Disposing and storing nuclear waste is the focus of a bill Congressman Rodney Davis is working on in the nation's capital.
 
The 13th Congressional District Republican says his bill proposes shipping nuclear waste to a depository in Nevada. 
 

 

According to Davis, the footprint of nuclear waste is very small and he feels it needs to be in a safe, isolated area.
 

 

Davis says the storage is actually going to be more environmentally safe in an isolated area than it would be in nuclear plants across the country.
