Abstract

This paper examines the key role that political trust plays in explaining repository risk perceptions of urban residents of the Las Vegas metropolitan area. Findings from two surveys of urban residents confirm that very low levels of political trust exist among residents for the federal government and particularly the Department of Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Yet, high levels of political trust are found to be strongly related to low risk perceptions of the repository.
