                                         [To accompany H.R. 347]
                            [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                    The Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, to which was
                  referred the bill (H.R. 347) to extend the authorization of the Ura-
                  nium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act of 1978 relating to the
                  disposal site in Mesa County, Colorado, having considered the
                  same, reports favorably thereon without amendment and rec-

                                             PURPOSE
                    The purpose of H.R. 347 is to extend the authorization of the
                  Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act of 1978 (Public Law
                  95-604) relating to the disposal site in Mesa County, Colorado.
                                      BACKGROUND AND NEED
                    Grand Junction, Colorado, is home to a former uranium proc-
                    essing site known as the Climax uranium mill that closed in 1970.
                  The mill operated for 19 years and produced 2.2 million tons of ra-
                  dioactive tailings, the material that remained after most of the ura-
                  nium metal had been extracted from uranium ore. From 1950 to
                  1966, mill tailings were available to private citizens to use as con-
                  struction materials and more than 4,000 private and commercial
                  properties in the Grand Junction area utilized the radioactive
                  tailings (these buildings are referred to as vicinity properties). In
                  1966, the Colorado Department of Health sampled the tailings from
                  the site uncovering elevated levels of radon-222.
