Comments on Proposed Legislation by Jim Rauch
The Citizen's Task Force, a site advisory board funded by the state has approved new legislation regarding the West Valley Site written by NYSERDA. The Coalition is opposed.

We also believe that in this current political climate we will lose ground as it works its way through Congress.Click here to review a critique by Jim Rauch.
