Senator Carnahan has come out against the use of Nevada’s Yucca Mountain as a national storage site for nuclear waste. Carnahan says she’s concerned about the frequency of shipments of nuclear material that wouldhave to pass through some of Missouri’s most populated areas – St. Louis, Columbia, and Kansas City. The U.S. Senate is expected to vote on the proposal after the July Fourth recess. The House of Representatives has already approved the site. It’s already supported by the White House. Senator Bond supports the Yucca Mountain project, saying it is wise to have America’s nuclear waste stored in one area, rather than in many locations throughout the country.
