Wasden, Otter Support N-Shipments

A recent agreement with the federal government could put Idaho at the forefront of a "resurgence" in nuclear reactor research, Gov. Butch Otter and Attorney General Lawrence Wasden said today. In a joint guest opinion, Otter and Wasden defend a decision that allows the Department of Energy to ship limited quantities of used nuclear reactor fuel to Idaho for research. They say the deal, announced Jan. 6, does not compromise a 1995 nuclear waste cleanup agreement forged by former Gov. Phil Batt/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Does this send a message that Idaho has changed its mind re: being a repository for nuclear waste?
