Nuclear plan still divisive

NOVEMBER 24, 2000

A plan to store nuclear waste on the Goshute Reservation in the Skull Valley of Utah divides people in the state, the tribe, and others.

With no other sustainable resource in a remote part of the state, the tribe sees the venture as a way to economic freedom. For at least 20 years, they will store spent nuclear nuclear fuel from institutions throughout the country.

Most politicians in the state, including the governor, oppose it.
