How About We Put That Nuclear Plant in Your District, Sen. Melvin?

Sen. Al Melvin isn't talking to us, but he told the Arizona Guardian that he hasn't yet figured out where he'd put his proposed nuclear recycling plant that allow the Arizona Legislature to spend fewer general-fund dollars on schools.

Melvin tells reporter Dennis Welch that he's in talks with several out-of-state companies who would like to dispose of their nuclear waste in Arizona. Jobs are No. 1, indeed.

We've got a suggestion for Atomic Al: Why not use Oracle State Park right in your district? The park closed on your watch. Perhaps a few dollars could be diverted from the education fund and used to reopen the park to people who enjoy the outdoors!
