(Columbia, South Carolina) -- The Palmetto State has long been seen as the nation's nuclear waste garbage dump. But Governor Jim Hodges is setting out to change that image. The governor formed a Nuclear Waste Task Force that will look into shutting down the Barnwell Low Level Nuclear Waste Facility to out-of-state waste. The task force's recommendations are expected by November.
