Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the status of the Department of Energy's (DOE) nuclear waste program activities for the quarter ending March 31, 1987.

GAO found that: (1) DOE released a draft amendment to its mission plan which extended the target date for first-repository operations, and postponed site-specific activities for the second repository; (2) DOE submitted its monitored retrievable storage proposal to Congress; (3) DOE surveyed state regulators' comments concerning its need to ensure that waste disposal fees are equivalent to fees paid under civilian spent-fuel contracts; and (4) the Nuclear Waste Fund collected over $135.4 million in revenue during the quarter and totalled about $1.5 billion at the end of the quarter.
