South Carolina's involvement in radiation storage at Yucca Mountain, healthcare reform, and Arizona's immigration have stirred questions if the cases are more about what's good for South Carolina, and what's good for the South Carolina Attorney General's Office led by a Republican.

The story focuses on healthcare but later mentions that the state likely won't spend much more than $6,000 on challenging it, and later states that the bulk of the expenses would likely be over the Yucca Mountain issue.

I'll point you to the Associated Press version of the story at The State. -- The original is over at The Greenville News, which has a pay wall.
