    Feds secretly shipped plutonium from SC

    (NEWSER) The Department of Energy revealed on Wednesday that
    it secretly shipped weapons-grade plutonium from South Carolina
    to a nuclear security site in Nevada months ago despite the
    state's protests. The Justice Department notified a federal
    judge in Reno that the government trucked in the radioactive
    material to store at the site 70 miles north of Las Vegas before
    Nevada first asked a court to block the move in November.
    Department lawyers said the previously classified information
    about the shipment from South Carolina can be disclosed now
    because enough time has passed to protect national security.
    They didn't specify when the one-half metric ton of plutonium
    was transferred.

    Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak said he's "beyond outraged by this
    completely unacceptable deception." He announced at a hastily
    called news conference in Carson City late Wednesday the state
    is now seeking another court order to block any more shipments
    of plutonium as it pursues "any and all legal remedies,"
    including contempt of court orders against the federal
    government, the AP reports. The newly elected Democrat said he's
    exploring options for the plutonium that has already arrived and
    is working with Nevada's congressional delegation to fight back
    against the US government's "reckless disregard" for the safety
    of Nevadans. (Japan isn't sure what to do with a stockpile of 47
    metric tons of plutonium.)
