South Carolina prepares restraining order against Pres. Obama
South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford has openly criticized President Obama’s abandonment of the Yucca Nuclear Waste facility in Nevada and is seeking legal recourse. Obama’s decision leaves the Aiken, South Carolina nuclear power site without any place to dump the waste, along with many other nuclear power facilities. Some of the waste was generated over 50 years ago and still needs a place for disposal.
...after meeting with Sanford and South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster, the [Aiken] City Council voted to seek a restraining order that would prevent the Obama administration from halting the Yuccan disposal plan.
