Governor Furious Over Yucca Mt Revival Plan

Governor Brian Sandoval says of Yucca Mountain, he wants to make his position clear – promising to vigorously fight the storage of high-level nuclear waste in Nevada. Sandoval says any attempt to resurrect this ill-conceived project will be met with relentless opposition, and maximum resources. Continuing down a path that seeks to force this unsafe and unwanted project on Nevada is a waste of time and money,  and only gets the country farther away from solving its nuclear waste problem. The Trump administration has proposed spending 120 million to restart the project. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto calls it a colossal waste of taxpayer money, Senator Dean Heller says the project has already flushed billions of dollars down the drain.
