Gov. Guinn to address Nevadans before making historic veto on Yucca Mountain
CARSON CITY - Gov. Kenny Guinn will address Nevada citizens about his Notice of Disapproval ("Veto") of President Bush's decision to recommend Yucca Mountain as the nation's Nuclear Waste Repository, Monday, April 8, 9 a.m., at UNLV's Tam Alumni Center.
