Congressional action alert reminder: Help stop nuke waste dumps! Contact your U.S. Rep.!

Help push back against nuclear power lobbyists! If you've already taken these actions, thank you -- please spread the word to others. If not, please contact your U.S. Representative, and urge opposition to H.R. 3053, the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 2017. Rumor has it the bill could go to the U.S. House floor for a vote in the next week or two. If H.R. 3053 becomes law, it would expedite the opening of environmentally unjust, scientifically unsuitable, non-consent-based radioactive waste dumps in Nevada (permanent disposal at Yucca Mountain), New Mexico, and/or Texas (so-called centralized interim storage facilities, at Holtec/Eddy-Lea Energy Alliance, and Waste Control Specialists, LLC, respectively). These dumps would require unprecedented numbers of high-risk "Mobile Chernobyl" road, rail, and/or waterway shipments of irradiated nuclear fuel through most states to get the nuke waste there. To find the contact info. for your U.S. Representative, enter your zip code, hit GO, and follow the links, or get patched through to their office by phoning the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 225-3121, and follow the voice prompt instructions.
