The leader of the U.S. Nuclear Industry Council has written a letter to President Trump in support of Holtec International’s plans for a nuclear waste storage facility in southeast New Mexico.
C.H. Albright Jr., who was an undersecretary of the Energy Department under President George W. Bush, wrote as a rebuttal to New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s letter to Trump on July 28.
Lujan Grisham said the project would pose a risk to communities and industries.
