LAS VEGAS (AP) - A frustrated congressional representative is asking for more disclosure about a plan to route nuclear waste through Las Vegas.
Democratic Rep. Dina Titus sent a letter Tuesday to the head of the federal Department of Energy asking to discuss a plan to ship 403 canisters of bomb-grade nuclear waste through her home state.
The Las Vegas Sun reports that she berated the department for failing to provide Congress with adequate information about the transportation plans.
Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval wrote a similarly scolding letter to the department in June.
