3/25/15 – Idaho Governors Face off over DOE proposal

governorsFormer Idaho Govs. Cecil Andrus and Phil Batt have threatened the US Department of Energy this month with a federal lawsuit over a deal between the current governor and the Department of Energy to allow a shipment of spent nuclear fuel into Idaho. Gov. Butch Otter says the amount of fuel in question is a small amount to be used for research. On this episode of Elemental Idaho, I talk with the two former governors about the 1995 settlement with the Department of Energy and why they say this latest move violates the public notice requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act.
