Nebraska has reportedly offered to settle the case in which it has been ordered to pay $151 million for blocking a nuclear waste dump within its borders.

Greg Hayden, Nebraska's representative to the Central Interstate Nuclear Waste Compact Commission told the Associated Press yesterday his counterparts from Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana are scheduled to go into executive session to discuss a possible settlement today at the annual meeting in Lincoln.

Nebraska has been ordered to pay the money to the Central Interstate Nuclear Waste Compact Commission.

Shawn Renner, one of the compact's lawyers, would only say that an executive session is planned for tomorrow.

Calls to Attorney General Jon Bruning's office seeking comment were not immediately returned.

A judge said earlier Nebraska acted in bad faith in blocking the facility.
