AP: French uranium enricher lobbying Idaho

Butch Otter’s former chief of staff, Jeff Malmen, to lobby Otter and state legislators. The company, Areva Inc., is eyeing five states as possible locations for the plant, and a spot near the Idaho National Laboratory in eastern Idaho is on its list. House Tax Chairman Dennis Lake, R-Blackfoot, is working with Idaho Falls leaders on a package of tax breaks designed to help lure the plant. Click below to read the full AP story.
