(KSL News) A deal between Governor Jon Huntsman and EnergySolutions limiting the amount of low-level radioactive waste coming to Utah may not be a deal after all.

In a newly released e-mail, the company's vice president says EnergySolutions is preserving its right to seek future approval for expansion.

The company says it's fulfilled a bargain with the governor by dropping a request to nearly double the capacity of its facility. Under the agreement, it will only accept waste under its current permit and will not pursue efforts to expand.

But the assistant attorney general says the deal never required the company to permanently stop expansion.
