Governor: No nuclear waste disposal site coming to Mississippi

Governor Phil Bryant said there will not be a nuclear waste dump site in Mississippi.

“As far as nuclear waste of course not, that’s an exaggeration,” said Bryant.

There’s been a lot of speculation that the governor supports a proposal on a state above-ground nuclear waste storage facility.

“Not going to be nuclear waste in Mississippi that was a research paper done by Mississippi Energy Institute,” added Bryant.

That so called research paper was presented in Jackson Monday.
