Gov. Gary Herbert has agreed to meet with an environmental activist group over concerns that a controversial nuclear waste deal proposed by EnergySolutions is still on the table.

HEAL Utah sent a letter to Herbert this month after media outlets began reporting that "talks" had been revived over a proposal by the nuclear waste company to split its revenue with the state if it is allowed to import foreign waste.

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Governor Herbert is not ruling out a nuclear waste deal with EnergySolutions.

In an exclusive interview with ABC 4, the governor said he would not deny the possibility of a revenue sharing deal with the waste disposal company.

One thing Utah's governor can definitely say: the EnergySolutions situation is very complex.

"It’s not a black and white issue. People get very emotional about this thing and as we become emotional, rational thought sometimes goes out the window,"
Governor Herbert said.
