DOE and Andrus

The very idea that the DOE can so arrogantly snub a past four-term Idaho governor (Andrus sues DOE, Sept. 30) by ignoring, forestalling and redacting his lawful requests under the Freedom of Information Act demonstrates the increasing punitive powers of our federal government.

In seeking to obtain information about the DOE waiver regarding proposed shipments of commercial spent nuclear fuel into Idaho, Andrus has reason to suspect that it offers serious violations from the 1995 Batt agreement. Every Idaho citizen should be equally alarmed.

Thank you, Cecil Andrus, for your steadfast diligence on behalf of Idaho.
