| LDS Church: 'No Position' on Storing Nuclear Waste in Utah
|In a statement issued by Dale Bills, spokesman for
the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the Church publicly says it
"has taken no position on the question of storing nuclear waste in Utah."
The statement came in response to some members of the church in Utah
pressing church leaders to issue a statement against allowing nuclear waste
to be shipped to the Skull Valley Goshute Indian Reservation, 45 miles east
of Salt Lake City. An agreement has been signed by leaders of the
reservation with Private Fuel Storage to allow the company to place nuclear
waste on 125 acres of reservation land that has been leased for the purpose.
