This news in from Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway:

"Yesterday,  I received a call from Dep. Sec. Poneman informing me that the U.S. Department of Energy is entering into negotiations with a consortium to enrich and recycle depleted uranium tails at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant.  I recognize that the Paducah area has been hard hit by the closing of the plant, and this welcome news could mean a new life for the existing facility and jobs for employees who've been out-of-work since the plant closed.  Dep. Sec. Poneman also reiterated a point that I made when we met in Washington, D.C. this summer - that the USDOE has a moral and legal obligation to clean up the contamination at the site.  He said the DOE plans to stand by that agreement."
