In a signed letter, thirty U.S. Senators implored U.S. Senate leaders to deliver justice to communities impacted by our government’s history of nuclear weapons development. Communities downwind of nuclear weapons testing and uranium development who became ill from exposure to toxic radiation could benefit from government recognition and compensation through the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA). Bipartisan support backs the call for the U.S. Senate to reauthorize and expand RECA before it expires in June 2024. Read the full letter here.
