(KSL News) Governor Huntsman may have found another way to control the storage of nuclear waste in Utah.
Huntsman refused to sign a bill that allows companies like EnergySolutions to expand without approval from the governor or the legislature.
Now the Salt Lake Tribune reports the Governor is drafting a letter to the Northwest Interstate Compact on Low-level Radioactive Waste seeking its help in capping the waste allowed at the Utah site.
Huntman's spokesman won't reveal what the letter says but says the Governor is committed to keeping additional waste out of our state.
