Sign letter to Obama on U.S. Radioactive Waste Policy
President Obama has taken a clear position on Yucca Mountain. By curtailing activity at the proposed repository for our nation's radioactive waste, the Obama administration has opened up the door for a new look at U.S. nuclear waste policy. The letter below not only states our position on nuclear waste management, but also urges President Obama to involve affected communities in the evaluation process.
We want to be involved in this process and we hope it will be earnest, open, and transparent. In that spirit, we urge ask that all levels of the Obama administration embrace and honor this period of evaluation of nuclear waste policy and ensure that the voices of the public are heard in that evaluation.
