Nikki Haley on Energy & Oil

 


Open the Savannah River Site nuclear reactor fuel project

Two of the Democrats seeking to challenge Sen. Tim Scott pledged to work toward completing & keeping open a multibillion-dollar nuclear reactor fuel project at Savannah River Site, saying they wouldn't support the Obama administration's plans to shutter the facility.

That stance is the same as one taken by many Republicans in South Carolina, including Gov. Haley. Earlier this year, Haley mounted a lawsuit against the federal government after the administration said it planned to halt construction on the facility, citing escalating costs and delays. South Carolina ultimately dropped its challenge after the government said it would continue to fund the program through the end of the current fiscal year.

Part of a US-Russia nonproliferation agreement to dispose of weapons-grade plutonium, the plant has been slow to attract customers for the commercial reactor fuel it will produce. It is more than three years behind its 2016 completion deadline and is billions of dollars over budget.

Not now, not ever, support raising the gas tax

I will not--not now, not ever--support raising the gas tax. The answer to our infrastructure problems is not to tax our people more, it's to spend their money smarter. Why would we raise the gas tax to improve infrastructure when all the gas tax dollars we currently collect don't go to improving our infrastructure?

Millions of dollars each year in gas tax revenue are being diverted away from our bridges and our highways. Let's invest more of the money we already have into this vital area.

Supports off-shore drilling near South Carolina coast

South Carolina Republican gubernatorial hopeful Nikki Haley said she would support oil drilling off her state's coast as governor. "But before we go forward I think we need to be very careful going forward that we know exactly what we're walking into and how we're going to do that."
