Editorial: Tribes should win on waste suit

THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2002

The Seattle Times in an editorial today says tribes and environmentalists are right to question the Department of Energy on plans to clean up a nuclear waste site.

The Yakama Nation of Washington and the Shoshone-Bannock Nation of Idaho, along with environmental groups, sued to prevent the department from changing the definition of waste. The tribes and environmentalists fear new regulations will let highly radioactive leftovers stay at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington.
