The Atomic Safety and Licensing Board made three rulings on Tuesday in favor of a proposed nuclear waste dump on the Skull Valley Goshute Reservation in Utah.

The rulings weren't made public because the contain financial information, The Salt Lake Tribune reported. One of them, however, rejected the state of Utah's claim that Private Fuel Storage (PFS), a consortium of eight private utility companies, doesn't have enough financial resources to operate the facility.
