State of Washington opposes federal nuke waste proposal 

The state of Washington said Tuesday it opposes a federal proposal to reclassify some radioactive waste on a site in the state that contains the nation’s largest supply because it fears much of the waste will be left in the ground.

The state this week filed its objections to a Trump administration plan to reclassify millions of gallons of waste stored in underground tanks at Hanford Nuclear Reservation.
