Bush Signs Nev. Nuke Waste Site Bill

Funny. I thought part of the Republican set of ideals was the idea of states' rights over federal domination. Of course, they're also notorious for talking out their asses.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Over Nevada's fervent protests, President Bush signed a bill Tuesday making Yucca Mountain the nation's central repository for nuclear waste.

``The successful completion of the Yucca Mountain project will ensure our nation has a safe and secure underground facility that will store nuclear waste in a manner that protects our environment and our citizens,'' White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said in a statement.

The project had been studies for more than 20 years, and Bush signed the measure with no fanfare. Reporters were not allowed to witness the bill-signing.
