Governor Brian Sandoval sent the following letter to the Chairman John Shimkus and Ranking Member Paul Tonko of the United States House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy prior to the subcommittee hearing on Yucca Mountain this week. In the letter, Governor Sandoval strongly reiterates his firm and consistent position that Nevada will oppose any federal government effort to dump nuclear waste in the state that will threaten our health and economy for centuries to come. Governor Sandoval will use every option to defeat any attempt to resurrect this ill-conceived and unsafe project.
