OREPA travels to DC: joins colleagues across the country

Six OREPA members will join scores of colleagues from across the country next week, April 17-20, in Washington, DC for the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability’s DC Days. The Uranium Processing Facility bomb plant will be one of the priority concerns of ANA as they fan out for meetings across Capitol Hill.

“We’ll meet with legislators and staff,” says OREPA coordinator Ralph Hutchison, “and we’ll also meet with Administration officials. We share our concerns with them, and we also listen. Given the ‘cone of silence’ from our Senator, Lamar Alexander, we have to glean what we can from other agencies and officials who have oversight of the UPF bomb plant project.”

ANA’s recommendations cover a broad range of issues, from Life Extension Programs to new bomb plants to waste and cleanup issues. The full agenda can be found in Trillion Dollar Trainwreck, a report issued today by ANA.
