"No Way Day"

Paul Hollingshead over at Utah Policy sent me (and other bloggers in Utah, I'm sure) an email asking to blog about tomorrow's "No Way Day" that is being put on in coordination with the Governer Hunstman, Orrin Hatch and Jim Matheson.

Basically, the BLM has the final say, it seems, on the issue of storing spent nuclear fuel in an above-ground facility 50 miles from Salt Lake City. This seems like lunacy to me that it's even an issue. Lawmakers should be preventing stuff like this from happening from the get-go, but that's a different issue.

Anyhow, the BLM is accepting public comment on the issue until May 8th. Storing spent nuclear fuel above-ground, that close to people is an act of madness.

Here's all the contact information for the BLM so you can write them. I did.

Contact: Pam Schuller
E-mail address:
Fax number: (801) 977-4397

Send letters to:
Bureau of Land Management
Salt Lake Field Office
2370 South 2300 West
Salt Lake City, UT 84119

There's also a press conference and rally tomorrow at noon in the State Office Building auditorium behind the Capitol. Everyone is invited.
