San Diego County Backs Issa's Bill to Move SONGS Nuclear Waste

Press Release
Mar 15, 2017

San Diego County is lining up in support of Congressman Darrell Issa's bill -- The Interim Consolidated Storage Act -- which would allow officials to move nuclear waste away from the San Onofre Nuclear Generation Station.

In a letter to Congressman Darrell Issa, Dianne Jacob writes on behalf of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors thanking Congressman Issa for his leadership on the issue and expressing the Board's support for H.R. 474.

The letter is available in its entirety here.

Congressman Issa released the following statement:

"Together, our communities and I are advancing a solution to one of our most pressing local challenges through the Interim Consolidated Storage Act," said Congressman Darrell Issa. This bill ensures the federal government upholds its promise to remove this waste from our community. I'm proud to have the support of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors for this important piece of legislation and look forward to continuing to fight on behalf of Southern Californians."

Earlier this year, Congressman Issa introduced the Interim Consolidated Storage Act and invited Congressman John Shimkus -- Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee responsible for nuclear waste issues -- to come out and visit the SONGS facility first-hand. The Interim Consolidated Storage Act was introduced as part of Congressman Issa's 2017 district legislative priorities.

The bill was previously endorsed by the San Diego Regional Chamber in a letter earlier this February.
