Stop appointment of nuclear industry executive to Radiation Control Board
On August 15th, Utah's senators will vote to confirm or reject the appointment of nuclear industry executive Dan Shrum to Utah's new Radiation Control Board. Whereas his appointment would constitute a blatant conflict of interest, comparable to the fox guarding the henhouse, we ask all Utah senators to reject the appointment of Shrum, Senior VP of EnergySolutions, Inc. EnergySolutions is in deep financial difficulties with strong motive to ram hotter nuclear waste past Utah officials. We ask you to stand for the right thing and reject this appointment.
Why is this important?
Utah legislators should reject the appointment of nuclear industry executive Dan Shrum to the state's new Radiation Control Board. This is literally a case of the fox guarding the hen house. His company, "EnergySolutions", is a company in deep financial difficulties scrambling to ram hotter nuclear waste past Utah officials. Ask the Utah senate to reject his appointment when it votes on August 15th.
