WASHINGTON, D.C. – At Tuesday’s House Budget Committee Hearing on President Trump’s proposed FY 2020 Budget, Congressman Steven Horsford (NV-04) demanded answers about the President’s proposal to spend $116 million restarting licensing for the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Repository.

Congressman Horsford questioned Acting Office of Management Director Russell Vought about the request given the President’s claim in October that he was “inclined to be against” the Yucca Mountain project.

Congressman Horsford also called on President Trump to accept Governor Sisolak’s request for a meeting regarding Yucca Mountain and the Department of Energy’s secret shipment of plutonium to Nevada.

“Why is the President breaking his promise that he made to the people of Nevada in 2018?”
