Washington, D.C. – Representative Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement in response to the Trump Administration’s decision to include funding to revive the Yucca Mountain project in its proposed FY 2020 Budget:

“By proposing that even more money be wasted on Yucca Mountain, Donald Trump has broken the promise he made to Nevadans during his recent visit to Elko,” said Congresswoman Titus (NV-1). “Every dollar this Administration proposes to put towards the revitalization of Yucca Mountain is another dollar down a rat hole because this unsafe, unsound project should never see the light of day. I will work with Governor Sisolak and my colleagues in the Nevada delegation to prevent the federal government from shoving this nuclear power company boondoggle down our throat.”
