SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Governor Huntsman is giving back 40-thousand dollars in donations from the new boss of nuclear waste handler Envirocare.

The biggest donation -- 25-thousand dollars -- was made a day before Steve Creamer was publicly named as a prospective Envirocare buyer.

The company is pushing the governor's office and Legislature to sign off on a plan to store hotter waste in Tooele County.

But the Huntsman administration now says they're giving the 25-thousand and a previous 15-thousand dollar donation back.

Huntsman has pledged to stop hotter Class B and C waste from being stored at Envirocare, about 80 miles west of Salt Lake City.

Right now, the facility is licensed to dispose of only Class A waste -- the least dangerous kind.
