Tell Congress: No taxpayer dollars for CIS facilities in Texas and New Mexico

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC) is considering proposals to build Consolidated Interim Storage (CIS) facilities to store nuclear waste in New Mexico and Texas. Both Texas and New Mexico are opposed to these facilities and the rest of the country should be as well. Both sites are unjustly targeted for Hispanic communities. Hauling nuclear waste is extremely dangerous and risky. To reduce risk, the waste should be transported only once, from the reactor sites to a permanent isolation facility.

Lessons from the Election and Demands for Joe Biden – from Peace Action

Joe Biden made the centerpiece of his campaign a battle for the "soul of the nation," making the election about character instead of running on the issues. The results showed that this was a flawed approach. Supporters of Medicare for All and the Green New Deal were nearly all returned to office, even in competitive districts. The corporate wing of the Democratic Party will continue to resist broadly popular initiatives to cater to their donors, representatives of the big banks, health insurance industry, drug companies, and arms manufacturers.
