WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:

For years, the United States has worked on plans to store its nuclear waste inside of Nevada’s Yucca Mountain. But President Obama’s budget plan calls for eliminating funding for that nuclear waste storage at Yucca.

Erich Pica is director of domestic campaigns with Friends of the Earth. WMNF spoke with Pica this morning and began by asking why the plans for Yucca Mountan have been scrapped.
