Nuclear Power Plant Security and Anti-Terrorism Act of 1985 - Amends the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to require every individual allowed unescorted access to a nuclear power facility to be fingerprinted. Provides that all fingerprints shall be submitted to the Attorney General for identification and a criminal history records check, with all costs to be paid by the facility licensee.
Authorizes the Nuclear Regulatory Commission by rule to waive such requirement under certain conditions. Directs the Commission to prescribe regulations to: (1) implement procedures for the taking of fingerprints; and (2) establish conditions for the use of information received from the Attorney General.
