Bonus money trumps safety at Hanford, experts say

HANFORD, Wash. -- One of the reasons Hanford Contractor Mike Geffre is so emotional is because he feels this is a race against time. Do something about the leaking tank before it's too late.

He's worried we've lost a year in finding that solution. And during that time your taxpayer dollars were still funneling into Hanford. Nearly $400 million to WRPS for the management of the tank farm. And as that money rolled in, so did warning signs about a leaking double-shell. Warnings that went unheeded.

KING 5 investigator Susannah Frame looked at whether bonus money is trumping safety at Hanford.
