From NC SPIN:
"Raleigh’s Waste Industries and three other companies who had been in the process of building mega-landfills in the state have filed claims amounting to $25 million in compensation for expenses they incurred prior to the passage of a state law that prohibited them from continuing. The largest claim, $13.6 million was for work done on the Camden landfill. Waste Industries has also filed suit in court to have the law overturned."
Sadly, only lawyers and companies stand to gain from this suit. But I hope they win. The General Assembly has taken economic opportunity away from depressed areas of N.C. in the name of NIMBY syndrome and eco-religion. We will all pay more to dispose our waste and burn more gas to save glass.
