Why would the United States welcome nuclear waste from other countries? Unless it's for the all mighty dollar, there is no plus side.

H.R. 5632 was introduced in March 2008 to prohibit the importation of certain low-level radioactive waste into the United States but never made it past Introduction and was cleared from the books.

Now, H.R. 515, the Radioactive Import Deterrence Act has been introduced (January 14, 2009). It has presently made it through Introduction and is now in Committee. The committees it is in are the House Energy and Commerce committee and the House Ways and Means committee.

Who is for the dumping in Utah? Orrin Hatch, U.S. Senator from Utah. Why would he be in favor of the over 1600 tons of Italian Nuclear Waste being disposed of in Utah? It could be because of the $24,400 contributions from Energy Solutions for the 2008 election cycle and $23,400 for the 2006 election cycle.
