Amodei Statement on Nuclear Waste Policy Act Passing Out of Committee

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-02) released the following statement today after the House Energy and Commerce Committee successfully passed H.R. 3053, the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 2017:

“I assume no one is surprised this bill started moving,” said Congressman Amodei. “The fact that the vote out of Committee was 49-4, and not a party-line vote, leads me to suspect this is a sign of things to come in the House. Another fact of note – when attempting to predict the future of this legislation – is the fact that Department of Energy Secretary Rick Perry was confirmed in the Senatewith a recorded vote of 62-37. We will continue to direct our efforts at providing the best possible protection for Nevadans.”
