Otter will fight mercury storage in eastern Idaho


Idaho Governor Butch Otter has announced his solid opposition to USDOE's pending proposal to ship and store mercury at Idaho National Lab or another USDOE site. However, Washington's Department of Ecology informed us that Washington did not have any position on USDOE's alternative of using Hanford - despite the Governor's strongly stated prior support for the principle of "Clean-Up First," under which USDOE would be required to cleanup and bring existing wastes into compliance before being allowed to add more wastes to Hanford.

Join us in Portland, on August 13th to respond to USDOE's proposal! Check out details at the events page on our website: http://www.hoanw.org/events/index.cfm?Fuseaction=events
