Hello, my name is ____ and l live in ____(town). I am calling because I oppose the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments act of 2018 and I would like my Representative to vote NO on HR 3053.
I heard the bill is coming to the House Floor soon. A vote for HR 3053 is a vote to bring highly radioactive, deadly waste to, or through, our state and communities on trucks and trains, and in some areas barges too. The shipments would be going to proposed consolidated waste storage sites in New Mexico, Texas and potentially to the failed Yucca site in Nevada. None of these places are viable long-term solutions for this waste and so the money and transport hazards would be a total waste. I oppose this plan, and I ask my Representative to oppose it too.
