Senator Cortez-Masto Wants More Info on Yucca Spending

Senator Catherine Cortez Masto is asking for information from Energy Secretary Rick Perry, on the Department’s activities and spending associated with any Yucca Mountain licensing. Cortez Masto raised concerns over how little information is available on how the Department of Energy would spend 120 million dollars, that’s the proposed funding. She says the budget process so far provides little meaningful information on how DOE would actually spend these funds for licensing activities for the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump.
