GOP Renews Push For Yucca Mountain

(Washington, DC) — House Republicans are hoping to revive the stalled nuclear repository at Nevada’s Yucca Mountain.

The Obama administration has not authorized any funding for Yucca Mountain.

Nevada’s congressional delegation has successfully blocked new funding for storing high-level nuclear waste in the Silver State.
