Considering all of the people that live in a 50 mile radius of the current SNF 'temporary' storage sites around nuclear reactors, it is hard to understand why a selfish few are against a more permanent and safer solution.  Nevertheless, the focus on deep geological repositories is very short-sighted.  A 50+ year of history of no SNF problems in the current storage configurations argues that spending millions on a Yucca Mountain is unnecessary.  If the current storage was that much of a public danger, then you would think that the politicians representing all the areas of current SNF storage would be fighting hard to get it fixed - not just to add further delays.  Ergo, only those who stand to gain from building repositories are still hot on the idea.
