Nikki Haley on Environment

 

 


Re-open Yucca Mountain for nuclear waste

I asked the president about South Carolina's Savannah River site, a department of Energy facility that has created thousands of jobs in our state. Nuclear material temporarily stored at the site had been scheduled to be permanently disposed of in Yucca Mountain in Nevada. The taxpayers had already paid $20 billion to develop Yucca Mountain, including $1.2 billion from South Carolina taxpayers. But the previous year, the Obama administration had cancelled further work on the project. "Will you keep the promise you made to the people of my state and reopen Yucca Mountain?" I asked. The president said no. "Then give us our money back." I said. When I go to Best Buy and pay for something that hasn't come in yet, I get my money back if it doesn't come in. What's the difference here?

Charleston is now US's top tourism spot; sell South Carolina

From the tidal creeks of Beaufort to the shores of Lake Keowee, South Carolina is blessed with the kind of natural beauty that makes us the envy of the nation. And this was the year we finally beat San Francisco-- Charleston was named the top tourist destination in America. But we can't rely on God's gifts alone to keep our tourism industry--the second largest industry in our state--turning. We have to sell South Carolina.
