BROOKLYN - ? Gov. David Paterson vetoed a bill that would force a radioactive waste station to move away from a Williamsburg school.

Parents say they have been fighting for years to move Radiac, the waste management center, away from P.S. 84. The bill would have prohibited any radioactive waste transfer stations within 1,500 feet of a school.

Paterson says he vetoed the bill because it would have a profoundly negative impact on other organizations in the area, such as hospitals and treatment facilities.
