ABSTRACT
The article reports that members from the U.S. House and Senate have written to the Department of Energy (DoE) asking the agency to rethink its decision to abandon Nevada's Yucca Mountain as a national nuclear waste repository. Energy Secretary Steven Chu had terminated funding for the project in 2009. Several states and organizations have filed a lawsuit in protesting the policy decision. Senate Majority leader Harry Reid has also opposed the decision.
