Congressman Joe Wilson's Statement on Federal Court's MOX Decision

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) released the following statement regarding the federal court’s decision this evening to prevent the Department of Energy from terminating the Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication Facility (MOX).

I am grateful for the hard work of Attorney General Alan Wilson whose swift action in federal court has helped prevent the imminent termination of the MOX facility. South Carolinians deserve better than being a de-facto repository for weapons-grade plutonium. The decision today is a step forward in ensuring the Department of Energy is held accountable to the people of our state.”
