I would think that the state gets bucket lodes of money from that stuff. Who knows where that money goes.

"The measure would also double the civil penalties — from $5,000 to $10,000 — for each violation of Utah's ban on prohibiting all but low-level radioactive waste."

Civil penalties? That is a fine to the corporation. It hurts the stockholders.

Until you start holding the corporate employees criminally liable with mandatory jail time, these guys will make decisions strictly on profit.
