Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada’s First District released the following statement today in opposition to the inclusion of funding for Yucca Mountain in the FY 2014 Energy and Water Appropriations Bill:

“I am disappointed that House Republicans continue to look backwards with their latest misguided attempt to waste billions of taxpayer dollars on an unworkable solution to the nation’s nuclear waste,” said Congresswoman Dina Titus. “I am committed to ensuring that Nevada never becomes the nation's nuclear waste dump, and look forward to offering an amendment to strip this language from the Energy & Water Appropriations Bill when it comes to the House Floor for consideration.”
