Statement by Prairie Island Tribal Council Regarding Possible Legislation to Expand Nuclear Waste Storage at Xcel's Prairie Island Nuclear Power Plant

    PRAIRIE ISLAND, Minn., May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- "It would be premature to
 comment on any possible legislation to expand storage of nuclear waste at Xcel
 Energy's Prairie Island power plant, located less than 600 yards from our
 community, until and unless that legislation is introduced.  What we can say
 is that we have standing to enforce the contract between Xcel Energy and the
 state of Minnesota limiting nuclear waste storage on Prairie Island.  That
 storage cannot be expanded without our permission.  We have been in contact
 with lawmakers regarding this issue and we hope to continue the dialogue."
