$50 billion in toxic pork for nuclear
energy axed from stimulus bill
Congressional negotiators in the House of Representatives and the Senate agreed late February 11 on a $789 billion stimulus bill but killed an attempt to squander $50 billion on new nuclear reactors. This result is a major victory for the many anti-nuclear and environmental groups that have been working non-stop to ensure this money stayed out of the bill and the thousands of grassroots activists, who made phone calls, wrote letters and sent emails to their elected officials.
