SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Envirocare of Utah may not expand as quickly as they would like.

That's because Governor Hunstman has declined to put it on next week's legislative special session agenda. A resolution that would allow the company to expand to an adjacent parcel of land.

Meanwhile, the state Division of Radiation Control Board held a public meeting last night to take comment on Envirocare's proposal to expand. The deadline to submit comment is today.

The governor's Chief of Staff Jason Chaffetz said Huntsman believed strongly that the public comment period needed to played out before it was put on the agenda.

Envirocare says the expansion is necessary to replace old equipment at its facility, northwest of Salt Lake City.

The next chance for Envirocare to take their case to lawmakers will be the January general legislative session.
