Herbert abandons predecessors' nuke fight
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

I'd like to know what changed in regards to keeping high-level nuclear waste out of Utah. Previous governors of the state and other politicians have fought hard to keep high-level nuclear waste out, and they have been successful.

Our current governor, Gary Herbert, appears not to have kept the fight going. If a nuclear power plant does get built in Utah, not only will we have high level nuclear waste, we will have a nuclear reactor that creates the waste.

All the time, effort, and expense of our previous governors will be meaningless because Herbert did not keep up the fight. I don't like to single out Herbert, but ultimately he is the one responsible, to us, the citizens of Utah.
