Addendum to LANL Petition

A La Jicarita reader suggested that we publish which congressional committees (Senate, House) have purview over nuclear weapons related decisions so that those who live in other states can petition their congressional delegations to demand that a Programmatic Environmental Impact State followed by a NEW Site-Wide Environmental Impact Study (SWEIS) for Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) be conducted before any expanded plutonium pit production and associated infrastructure projects begin. Below are lists of the members of the Appropriations and Water Development Subcommittees and Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces, the two committees that have jurisdiction over the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), the agency within the Department of Energy (DOE) that will oversee the proposed massive expansions at LANL and the Savannah River Site.

A petition template is in the February 10, 2020 issue of La Jicarita.
