prevent any state from banning ongoing projects if it wants The decisions underlying rationale is a total victory for the said Professor Laurence He said the courts ruling plainly is independent of the question whether the plant has begun construction or if any states do enact legislation ordering abandonment of plants already being they would have to reimburse the owners under a Fifth Amendment
