SC Governor Plans to Sue Dept. of Energy

Posted: Updated:
Aiken, SC -

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is fighting for the rights of people in her state.

She and other state leaders were in Aiken Tuesday to announce a lawsuit in regards to the MOX project at SRS.

"This was a promise made to the people of South Carolina. This was an investment made to the people of South Carolina, this was a law passed for the people of SC."

The lawsuit accuses the Department of Energy of using federal money, set aside for the project, to shut it down.

The latest federal budget proposal calls for halting the funding.

The suit states that not moving forward with the project violates federal law and will negatively impact 1,800 workers at the MOX facility.
