John McCain, call for the expansion of the nuclear power industry with the construction of several dozen new nuclear power plans in the continental United States; Whereas, there are currently no federally approved permanent nuclear waste sites to store the tons of low-level and high-level radiation waste generated by existing or future nuclear power plants; Whereas, the citizens of Appalachia have suffered for decades from the unsustainable exploitation of non-renewal resources in our region, We, the undersigned, call on our elected officials to enact a permanent ban on the storage of nuclear power plant waste in abandoned coalmines.
