Obama Regime Takes Another on the Chin

This is gratifying. Yucca Mountain is still alive as a nuke-waste dump.

[W]e deny DOE’s motion to withdraw the Application. We do so because the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, as amended (NWPA), does not permit the Secretary to withdraw the Application that the NWPA mandates the Secretary file. Specifically, the NWPA does not give the Secretary the discretion to substitute his policy for the one established by Congress in the NWPA that, at this point, mandates progress toward a merits decision by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on the construction permit.

So sayeth a panel of NRC Administrative judges.

Of course, Teh Won's stooge at D0E has already appealed to the full NRC.
