Minnesota Senate Passes Resolution Urging Federal Government to Act on Consolidated storage

Earlier today, the Minnesota State Senate passed a resolution urging President Obama and the U.S. Congress to carry out the recommendations of Blue Ribbon Commission on America's Nuclear Future, especially with regard to consolidated storage of used nuclear fuel.

The resolution passed by a vote of 63-0.

We like to think of it as a great example of bipartisan cooperation that ought to be emulated nationwide. We'll have more later if events warrant.

What? President Obama take decisive action ... during an election year?!

Talk about fooling yourself.

Obama has been dodging this issue for almost four years now. Why would anyone think that a mere state resolution would make him get off his can at this particular moment? He still needs his base of enviro-wackos to support him if he ever hopes to be reelected.

When it comes to nuclear power, Obama has earned the title of "Procrastinator in Chief."
