Great News for Utah!

Update on the Deseret Morning News' website:
WASHINGTON — Private Fuel Storage no longer has a lease to use tribal lands to store nuclear waste in Tooele County, after decisions made by two Interior Department agencies Thursday.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs opted to "disapprove" the lease after the Bureau of Land Management denied the consortium access to the federal land it would need to build a transportation facility.
"Utah spoke and the BLM listened," said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. "PFS is dead. It's that simple."
Salt Lake Tribune web update :
"It couldn't happen to nicer people."
