Presley writes Obama, others to oppose putting nuclear waste in state

Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley reached out to President Barack Obama, Mississippi’s congressional delegation and other Washington leaders in an attempt to block any federal government attempts to dispose of the nation’s nuclear waste on Mississippi soil, according to a release from his office.

In a letter sent today, Presley shared copies of recent unanimously passed PSC resolutions opposing the siting of a permanent nuclear waste disposal site in Mississippi and requesting refunds for the $80 million paid by Mississippi residents for a failed government storage facility in Yucca Mountain, Nevada.
