WASHINGTON, D.C.
– Representative Ruben J. Kihuen issued the statement below following Secretary Perry’s visit to Yucca Mountain, located in Nevada’s fourth Congressional District:

“Over the weekend I was informed of Secretary Perry’s planned visit to Yucca Mountain. It is important for Secretary Perry to see firsthand the negative impact this project would have on Nevadans. Our state shouldn’t serve as a dumping ground for the country’s nuclear waste. I have requested a meeting with the Secretary to discuss my concerns over installing a nuclear waste repository in Nevada’s backyard. I hope the Nevada delegation will continue to work cooperatively and constructively to keep this project from coming back from the dead.”
