Order on Goshute finances halted
Facebook Twitter Email

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Thursday halted an order that required the Skull Valley Goshute Tribe of Utah to disclose spending related to a proposed nuclear waste dumb.

The order was issued by the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board last month in response to complaints by dissident tribal members. The commission held back, saying the board was acting more like a dispute settler than a regulatory agency.

The commission will consider the issue further before making its decision permanent.
