US towns try to extract their pound of flesh

The US nuclear plants are making a ton of money from the fed's lack of a nuclear waste repository. Because of a contract, the fed's have to pay the companies to store nuclear waste. Now the local towns want a slice of that pie!

It comes from the fact that the plants made a promise when they were starting, that they wouldn't store waste there. Now, all the Great Lakes are lined end-to-end with waste casks! The US won't get too far with a central location, because each state can put up quite a fight.

Of course, in Canada, we're just as badly off. They have to find a town who wants the waste! And for some reason, these happy towns are all on shit geology, which can be easily turned into good geology, by hard PR spinning!
