DCCC Reminds Voters of Three Mile Island

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee slammed more than 50 House Republicans on Monday, the 32nd anniversary of the Three Mile Island disaster, for voting to reduce nuclear security spending.

The targeted statements distributed to the Members’ districts accuse the lawmakers of supporting “a dangerous plan to drastically reduce the security of nuclear facilities across the nation.” The lawmakers voted last month to pass a continuing resolution authored by House Republicans for the remainder of fiscal 2011 that would cut funding for the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office and for nuclear non-proliferation efforts, according to a summary of the bill by House Appropriations Republicans. It would also cut funding for first responder training for weapons of mass destruction, according to a summary by Senate Appropriations Democrats.
