WASHINGTON — Energy Secretary Steven Chu told a group of state officials Wednesday he favors moving toward licensing a nuclear waste repository in Nevada, although whether it would ever be built is another thing altogether.

Nuclear waste was one of the topics on the agenda when Chu met with state public service leaders at an annual conference of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners.

But several people who were at the 20-minute session said Chu stressed that President Barack Obama doesn’t want the Yucca repository, “and I work for the president.”
