Colo. lawmaker to release Rocky Flats lab tests
DENVER (AP) – State Rep. Wes McKinley is again disputing the clean up of the former Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant.
McKinley and Dr. LeRoy Moore say they’ll reveal the results of new soil samples at a press conference Wednesday.
The samples were taken last spring and analyzed at a lab.
McKinley is a Democrat from southeastern Colorado who was the foreman of a grand jury that investigated Rocky Flats. He has disputed claims the site has been cleaned up.
In 2005, Deputy Energy Secretary Clay Sell declared the 10-year, $7 billion cleanup of Rocky Flats complete, making it the first former nuclear weapons site to be declared totally remediated.
