Lawmakers ask for review of Hanford cleanup

Members of Congress are asking the federal government to review the progress of years of cleanup work at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, in light of the partial collapse of a tunnel containing radioactive wastes earlier this month.

U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., says lawmakers sent a letter Wednesday to the Government Accountability Office asking for the review.
