Support continues to build for legislation authored by Congressman Darrell Issa that would allow the nuclear waste at San Onofre to be moved from our community and into consolidated, temporary storage facilities. In a recent letter, the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club (which serves San Diego and Orange Counties) lays out the need for federal legislation like Darrell Issa’s bipartisan Interim Consolidated Storage Act.

The Sierra Club is the latest organization to express support for the bill, following recent endorsements by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Mayors of OceansideHuntington BeachLaguna BeachSan Clemente and Seal Beach through the Concerned Coastal Communities Coalition.
 
BACKGROUND:
 
On January 12, 2017 - Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-49) and Chairman Mike Conaway (TX-11) introduced a bill that would pave a path forward for storage of the nation's nuclear waste. The Interim Consolidated Storage Act would allow the Department of Energy to use interest from the Nuclear Waste Fund to contract temporary storage facilities for spent nuclear fuel and could have the federal government begin collecting waste from nuclear facilities across the country in as little as 5 years.
