(KSL News) Governor Jon Huntsman has received plenty of feedback from voters who want him to VETO a bill on radioactive waste storage.

Huntsman's office has gotten hundreds of phone calls supporting a veto.

The bill would eliminate the governor's office, the legislature and local governments from any role in the expansion of a nuclear-waste landfill.

He has until Tuesday to make a decision, but the pending bill passed both the House and the Senate with enough votes to override a veto.
