This is a paragraph from the Nuclear Waste Committee Report on Yucca Mountain.

The Department of Energy (DOE) requested $494.7 million for its civilian
nuclear waste program for FY2009, 28% above the FY2008 appropriation. However,
the FY2008 level of $386.4 million is about $50 million below the FY2007 level and
more than $100 million below the Administration’s FY2008 request. The House
Appropriations Committee approved DOE’s full request for FY2009, and the Senate
Appropriations Committee recommended $388.4 million. Funding for the program
is currently under a continuing resolution (P.L. 110-329). Under the Nuclear Waste
Policy Act of 1982 (NWPA), the DOE program is developing an underground
nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. DOE contends that recent
funding reductions will delay the earliest possible opening of the Yucca Mountain
repository to 2020 — 22 years later than required by NWPA.

That is all I have found on the opening of Yucca Mountain. If I find any thing more, I will post it.
