July 9, 2013

Dear Friends,

The U.S. House of Representatives today will begin taking up next year's energy appropriations bill, which was approved by a House committee before the recent recess.

We have just learned that conservative Republican Rep. Michael Burgess of Texas will introduce an amendment to strip $48 million in funding earmarked for the U.S. Enrichment Corporation (USEC). This money would keep this failing company alive for a few more months while it seeks still more taxpayer bailouts. This amendment needs our active support.

Adopting a plan to move waste around the country without linkage to permanent disposal would be inequitable.
