CONSERVATION VOTERS OF SOUTH CAROLINA COMMENDS GOVERNOR HALEY FOR STANDING UP FOR SOUTH CAROLINA ON BARNWELL

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Conservation Voters of South Carolina (CVSC) Executive Director Ann Timberlake issued the following statement regarding Governor Haley’s Barnwell press conference.

“Conservation Voters of South Carolina commends Governor Haley for her resolve to uphold the terms of the Atlantic Compact that ended the use of Barnwell as the nation’s nuclear dumping ground.

The Governor’s position is consistent with her record in the House and with numerous polls that conclude that South Carolinians overwhelming oppose bringing more out-of-state waste to South Carolina.

Conservation Voters stands with Senators Courson and Lourie who have said that ‘We never want South Carolina to again receive the dubious sobriquet of being the nation’s dumping ground for nuclear and hazardous waste.’ We agree with Governor Haley’s statement that ‘We don’t want to sell our souls for jobs and money.’ ”
