Fed audit says millions wasted to avoid sending Hanford nuke jobs to Idaho

An inspector general's audit says the U.S. Department of Energy wasted $25 million because it didn't ship certain radioactive wastes from Hanford, Wash. to Idaho for processing, in part because Hanford workers protested that the move would shift jobs to Idaho; Tri-City Herald reporter Annette Cary reports that the Idaho National Laboratory has equipment to compact the waste that Hanford lacked./Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise
