Nuclear Waste
House Roll Call Vote 125
Issue: Dirty Energy

Atomic Energy Commission Authorization bill (HR 9388). The vote is on the Skubitz amendment to delete $315 million to enable the AEC to bury radioactive atomic wastes in a salt mine near Lyons, Kansas. The AEC later admitted that the project was not proven safe, and could possibly contaminate ground water. The AEC opposed the amendment, but the White House took no position. (Rejected 162-207. July 15, 1971. "Yes" is the correct vote.)
