Washington, D.C. – Today Representative Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement on the passage of H.R. 3053, the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act, also known as Screw Nevada 2.0:

“I have fought the misguided and dangerous Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump project for my entire career and I’m not giving up,” said Representative Dina Titus. “This legislation is fundamentally flawed and going nowhere in the Senate. It does nothing but to double down on the failed policies of the last 36 years. I offered the House a new path forward, one that is based on the consent of the host state and affected communities. If we are to solve this issue once and for all, we have to change directions. Nevada remains unified in opposition to turning our state into the nation’s waste dump, and that will not change.”
