WASHINGTON — Marta Adams, a senior attorney for the state of Nevada and its chief in-house lawyer on Yucca Mountain, has announced her retirement at the end of the month.
Adams, chief deputy attorney general, has represented Nevada in all matters involving the controversial nuclear waste program since 1998. She also has handled a variety of other environmental law issues since shortly after joining the attorney general‘s office in 1983.
“The rumor is true,” Adams, 64, said Tuesday. “It‘s time for me to switch gears and do the typical things people say, tend to my family and that sort of thing. It‘s been a good run.”
