The Obama administration should continue funding the mixed-oxide fuel program at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina, several Republican lawmakers said. In a letter to President Barack Obama, lawmakers wrote that slowing down such funding would affect domestic and foreign relations. "Your decision violates the commitments that were made to South Carolina and jeopardizes a 60-year partnership between the Savannah River Site and the state," wrote Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; Tim Scott, R-S.C.; Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.; and Johnny Isakson, R-Ga.
