Xcel Energy is requesting state permission to store spent fuel at its Monticello nuclear plant. With the opening of a permanent waste disposal site at Yucca Mountain in Nevada unknown, some are concerned the material will remain in the state forever.
- Ellen Anderson (DFL-St. Paul): State senator representing District 66. Anderson just returned from a trip to Yucca Mountain.
- Jim Alders: Manager of regulatory projects at Xcel Energy.
- William Miller: Professor of nuclear science and engineering at the University of Missouri-Columbia Nuclear Science and Engineering Institute.
