» [Report by NHK] Gov’t pays \230 billion over 30 years if Fukushima accept temporary storage

The central government has offered to pay the Fukushima Prefectural Government ¥230 billion over the next 30 years if the prefecture hosts temporary storage facilities for soil tainted by radiation from the March 2011 nuclear disaster, according to the report by NHK.

But Fukushima Prefecture is unhappy with the plan because the administration is at the same time planning to terminate the current ¥12 billion-per-year subsidy when it formally decides to dismantle the Fukushima No. 2 nuclear power plant in line with requests from local governments, according to NHK.
