Description

Spokesman-Review's six-month investigation into "how taxpayer dollars are being spent on the nation's largest nuclear waste cleanup, at Hanford in Washington state. Their major findings: After five years and $7.5 billion, little has been cleaned up so far, and as much as one in every three dollars may have been wasted. Lucrative contracts born during Hanford's bomb-making days still reward private contractors for inflated spending on such perks as chauffeur service, free pizzas, jewelry, self-help books and do-nothing jobs.
