Buffalo News – House reauthorizes West Valley Demonstration Project

March 6, 2019 – The House, by voice vote, reauthorized federal funding for the West Valley Demonstration Project for the fiscal years 2020 through 2026. The bill will allow Congress to set aside $75 million a year for the nuclear waste site, although lawmakers will have to approve that funding again in appropriations bills in each of the next seven years.

“We urge our colleagues in the Senate to quickly pass our bill to reauthorize this vital nuclear cleanup project,” Rep. Tom Reed, a Corning Republican who sponsored the reauthorization bill, said Wednesday. Link to article
