Rally signifies beginning of major effort against DOE license application
May 27, 2008
Las Vegas, NV – Nevada Senator Harry Reid joined a coalition of Nevada leaders and environmental groups to launch a petition effort against the license application by the Department of Energy (DOE) for the proposed Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump.
The petition tells the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that the people of Nevada stand staunchly against the proposed nuclear waste dump at Yucca Mountain. Reid was the first to sign the petition at today's event, along with Congressman Jon Porter; Senator Richard Bryan; Clark County Commission Chairman Rory Reid; Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager; and representatives from the Nevada Commission on Nuclear Projects, Citizen Alert, Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada, Sierra Club and Nevada Nuclear Waste Taskforce.
"We will not let the people of Nevada be put at risk by the storage or transportation of the nation's nuclear waste – not now and not ever. I urge Nevadans to join me in signing this petition today," Reid said.
