President Bush promised Nevadans last month that he would not appeal a key court decision that could hold up the storage of nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain. State officials such as Attorney Brian Sandoval who spoke at the Republican National Convention last night say the president has kept his promise as Government lawyers declined to file an appeal last week. KNPR's Ky Plaskon reports on how President Bush has spun his decision to store waste at Yucca Mountain starting with his speech last month in Las Vegas.
Nevada Attorney General Brian Sandoval who led the winning legal fight against the Bush Administration on Yucca didn't return phone calls from KNPR on the topic. He spoke Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention in support of the President. Thursday night KNPR will air live coverage of the Republican National Convention starting at 7 p.m. including President George W. Bush's acceptance speech of the party's nomination to run for president against Senator John Kerry.
