Tennessee Gov. Don Sundquist Supports Yucca Mountain
"Nearly constant review of these activities [scientific and environmental studies] by various commissions, boards, and advisory agencies has not identified disqualifying site characteristics. At this time, in addition to protecting future generations and the environment by permanently isolating high-level nuclear waste and spent nuclear fuel, it will also take in account post September 11 reality of securing and protecting the current numerous spent fuel storage locations across the nation. Your positive recommendation of the Yucca Mountain site will make the best use of national resources."
