Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement in response to the DC Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling, which ordered the Yucca Mountain licensing application to proceed.


"The Obama Administration has developed a habit of disregarding the law. Today's decision by the DC Circuit Court of Appeals is a tremendous victory for our nation as it holds the President accountable for abiding by the decision Congress made to designate Yucca Mountain as the nation's nuclear waste repository.  South Carolina rate-payers have invested over $1.3 billion dollars into Yucca Mountain over the last thirty years and we deserve to see this project completed," Congressman Wilson said.
