Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

One of my first actions in this new Congress is to renew the fight to stop foreign countries from shipping their radioactive waste to America for disposal in Utah.

A bipartisan bill I first introduced last year has now been reintroduced in both the House and in the Senate. The Radioactive Import Deterrence Act (HR 515) – RID – has 55 cosponsors and is gaining support rapidly.

Sixteen years ago, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission was warned if it allowed nuclear waste to be imported into the United States, the country could turn into the world’s nuclear dumping ground.
