Idaho nuclear deal snagged on treatment plant

Letters between the U.S. Department of Energy and Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, made public by Wasden, show that the federal agency balked at a counteroffer Wasden made seeking a way around the malfunctioning Integrated Waste Treatment Unit at the Idaho National Laboratory.

AP reporter Keith Ridler examined the letters to paint a picture of the failure of the negotiations, which resulted in the cancellation of the first proposed shipment; you can read his full report here. Betsy Russell, EOB
