Indian Point Energy Center is scheduled to cease operation in 2021. When the plant closes, the Village of Buchanan and the Town of Cortlandt will be left with a large amount of stranded nuclear waste onsite.
- This week I offered an amendment with Congressman Brad Schneider (IL) that would help communities like Buchanan and the Town of Cortlandt identify vital resources to mitigate any negative economic impact following Indian Point’s closure.
- Until the Department of Energy takes title to nuclear waste and removes it from our communities, the federal government must do all it can to support these de facto interim storage sites.
