Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada’s First District released the following statement on the Department of Energy’s plan to transport and bury uranium waste at the Nevada National Security Site:

"Since I learned about the proposed transfer of nuclear waste from Oak Ridge, I've had concerns and voiced them adamantly with the White House and the DOE. Until I receive satisfactory answers to all of my questions, I will oppose any transfers of nuclear material. Nevada is not America's dumping ground."
