Governors of Oregon, Washington seek more Hanford funding

The governors of Washington and Oregon are asking President Donald Trump to increase the funding for Hanford Nuclear Reservation cleanup efforts.

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, both Democrats, made the request to the Republican president in a letter released on Friday.

The letter noted an incident earlier this month when the roof of a tunnel containing radioactive waste partially collapsed at Hanford.

The governors say the incident is a reminder of the challenges and urgency needed in cleaning up the Hanford site.

1. We've been hearing this for 50 years

We've spent more than a $Trillion and can't seem to get rid of the toxic waste. It's been cost+ contracts and endless restarts with no end in sight. Maybe we're doing it wrong.
