Federal Appeals Court Rules: Nevada will be the Glowiest State

(AP) WASHINGTON - A federal appeals court on Friday rejected Nevada's arguments against building a nuclear waste site in the state... The 3-judge panel dismissed claims by Nevada that the Bush administration's plan to build the Yucca Mtn waste site was unconstitutional and said that actions by the Energy Department and Prez Bush leading up to approval of the waste site were not subject to review by the court.
Once the Yucca Mountain facility is complete and all the other states start shipping tons of nuclear waste there via our impressively well-maintained national highway and railway infrastructure, states like Illinois and California will no longer get bragging rights of being the states that glow the brightest.

Nuclear Waste Dump Sites in the US (note: CA has 9 and Illinois has 10!)
