A Matter Of Opinion

Initiative 297 (Hanford clean-up) tossed

UPDATE: Here is the S-R story.

Back in 2004, we noted the possibility that this voter-approved measure to intervene in the clean-up of Hanford would be rejected by federal courts.

That's what happened today, when the 9th Circuit said federal law pre-empts this one. Oh well, lots of lawyers made money.
