Stop Nuclear Dumping in Tennessee

In California, lawmakers secretly talk about the “Tennessee Loophole” which allows nuclear waste to be dumped in ordinary Tennessee landfills. Unbelievable? Unfortunately, it’s a sad fact and it is done through a process known as Bulk Survey for Release (Click Here for Video). BSFR begins by reclassifying nuclear waste and ends by dumping this radioactive material in Tennessee landfills that are not regulated, controlled or designed for radioactivity. It’s like dumping Drano in a child’s toy box!

However, unlike a John Grisham novel, everything being done is being done legally and with the support of our elected officials. In fact, our state government is profiting from it! Our state has a responsibility to mandate nuclear waste be disposed of in facilities designed to safely isolate nuclear waste while protecting our beautiful state.

During the 2009 legislative session, Senator Marrero introduced Senate Bill 687 aimed at ending the process of Bulk Survey for Release. SB687 was assigned to the Senate Committee on Environment, Conservation and Tourism. While SB687 seeks to protect the health and safety of our families, it never even received a hearing--much less a vote!

Families for a Clean Tennessee needs your help to ensure this critical piece of legislation is passed next year.

Much thanks for a good article, there's very interesting for me.
The rulers can do everything they want and I really doubt that we can change something. It's a fact, the sad but a fact. But I know when I need write same articles by myself, I use because if we can describe our thoughts we are strong!
