‘Ballot Question‘ means a measure to provide radiological emergency planning (accident notification; written directions for appropriate safety measures; calling for moving irradiated fuel to dry cask storage; identification of radiological shelters) is on the ballot. For an outline of commonsense radiological emergency planning, see the Be prepared pdf handout. Sheltering livestock and their feed is not enough.
‘Passed‘ means that the town’s governing body voted to accept KI from the state as provided by Chapter 425 of MGL 2002. See sample town meeting articles to request KI from the state.
