BLOCK FED FUNDING FOR RADIOACTIVE YUCCA WASTE DUMP. Congressional Republicans have been trying hard to attach a rider to year-end budget legislation to keep the federal government operational, that would fund #YuccaMountainNevada high-level radioactive waste dump licensing proceedings, to the tune of $60 million. Yucca is #WesternShosoneIndianLand, so the dump would not only illegally violate the #TreatyOfRubyValley of 1863, it would also be an environmental injustice. PLEASE TAKE ACTION! Contact both your U.S. Senators, and your U.S. Rep., and urge them to block funding for the wasteful and dangerous Yucca dump. You can call their D.C. offices via the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Beyond Nuclear Yucca Mountain website section: When it comes to #radioactive waste transportation, we all live in #Nevada. 44 states, many major cities, and the vast majority of U.S. congressional districts, would be traversed by high-level radioactive waste truck and train shipments as well as surface water barge shipments.
