Letter: Shame on Herbert for dragging feet on Stericycle
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated.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.

Thirty-nine states have banned medical-waste incineration and eight of them ship their waste to North Salt Lake. Yet Gov. Gary Herbert is spending hard-earned Utah tax dollars to study if burning medical waste happens to be safe in Utah — in the middle of a housing development, no less. What is more, there are also five schools within a mile of the facility ("Healthy-air advocates call for Stericycle boycott," Tribune, Nov. 14).

If I didn't know better, I'd think either the governor is naïve or willing to do almost anything for business. Stop stalling, Gov. Herbert!
