(KSL News) -- Governor Huntsman will co-sponsor a proposal to stop nuclear waste from coming to Utah.

Huntsman opposes a temporary nuclear storage facility on the Goshute Indian Reservation in Tooele County. He's also concerned about the safety of transporting the waste through Utah.

His resolution asks the federal government to let the states help decide where waste storage sites should be built.

He's developing the proposal at the annual meeting of the Western Governors' Association.
