HOUSE PASSES CONTINUING RESOLUTION WITH $7 BILLION IN TAXPAYER LOANS FOR NEW REACTOR CONSTRUCTION

URGENT: TELL SENATE TO REJECT ANY NEW TAXPAYER LOANS FOR NEW NUKES

December 9, 2010

It’s my birthday, and I wasn’t planning on having to send an Alert out today, but…

The House last night approved a Continuing Resolution to fund the government through next September that adds $7 Billion in new taxpayer loans for new reactor construction. They also threw in $3 Billion for “clean” coal.

That’s $2 Billion less than the most recent Department of Energy request, and is less than 20% of what President Obama asked for in February–but it’s still $7 Billion too much!

The Senate will vote on this as early as tomorrow. Please send a letter to your Senators today here. (US eligible people only) If you can, please also call them and tell them no taxpayer dollars for nuclear reactors! Their direct phone numbers will appear when you send your letter.

And please, after you send your letter you’ll be directed to our donation page. If you haven’t contributed yet this holiday season, please make a tax-deductible donation of any size–it really makes a difference and makes our work possible.

Thanks for all you do!
