Radioactive Report Card

By: Staff
Published In: Independent

Tri-Valley CAREs is in Washington, DC this week to release a "Radioactive

Report Card" grading U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear weapons

policies during the George W. Bush years and laying out a new and different

agenda for the next administration to follow.

The group urged members of Congress and agency officials to press for an

end to nuclear weapons development and to recommend funding be used instead

for environmental cleanup and other programs. There will be a request to

stop funding the Reliable Replacement Warhead.

The Tri-Valley CAREs team will be working with colleagues from more than a

dozen other states who are participating in the 20th annual Alliance for

Nuclear Accountability (ANA) "DC Days." The Tri-Valley CAREs delegation

will meet with Senators and Representatives from California, leaders of

congressional committees that oversee nuclear issues, and key federal

agency staffers.

Tri-Valley CAREs has been a member group of the national Alliance for

Nuclear Accountability since 1989. The ANA network represents more than 30

local, regional and national organizations whose members live downwind and

downstream from U.S. nuclear weapons production and radioactive waste

disposal sites.
