APRIL 20, 2001 The Timbisha Shoshone Tribe of California on Wednesday said it has asked Secretary of Interior Gale Norton to engage in consultation over a proposed nuclear waste storage facility.

The tribe says it wants to be consulted on the project because its health and way of life would be affected. Get the Story:
