Bernalillo County Approves Resolution Against Nuclear Waste Transportation

The Bernalillo County Commission is the latest local government body to formally oppose the transportation of radioactive waste through their county. The spent uranium fuel rods would eventually make their way to the Waste Isolation Plant east of Artesia. The move by Bernalillo County Commissioners follows shortly after the Albuquerque city council also approved a memorial denying transportation of waste by railway through the city.
