The Honorable Kenny C. Guinn
Governor of Nevada
Office of the Governor
101 North Carson
Carson City, NV 89701


Dear Kenny;

Thanks for the update on the legislative situation in Washington, I believe
sound science and not politics, must prevail in the designation of any high-
level nuclear waste repository. As President, I would not sign legislation that
would send nuclear waste to any proposed site unless it's been deemed
scientifically safe. I also believe the federal government must work with the
local and state governments that will be affected to address safety and
transportation issues.

Again, thanks for the briefing. Give my best to Dema.

Sincerely,

     --/s/--
George W. Bush
