Paducah Cleanup Cost to Congress

(PADUCAH) -- Kentucky Governor Paul Patton says he'll go to Congress to help pay for the clean up of Paducah's Gaseous Diffusion Plant. The plant is the scene of allegations that workers who thought they were handling uranium were, unknowingly, handling plutonium that is 100-times more toxic. Patton says the target date for cleanup completion is 2010.
