This statute seeks to regulate radioactive materials, to encourage the constructive uses of radiation, and to prohibit and prevent exposure to radiation in amounts which are or may be detrimental to health. Any installation of ionizing radiation equipment must be registered with the State.
Testing for radiation emission will be conducted within 20 miles of a nuclear power plant, and the owners of each nuclear power plant in the state will be charged an annual fee of $30,000 per plant, to finance radiation monitoring under this section. The State of Wisconsin's radiation control agency is given broad responsibility under this statute for rule-making and enforcement, education, investigation, training, research, radiation measurement, and inspection.
