Take a stand! Tell our Senators to stop S.1111, a new bill that would keep US taxpayers on the hook for the full costs of nuclear disasters and promote nuclear energy worldwide. S. 1111, the ADVANCE Act of 2023 is a comprehensive pro-nuclear bill that includes a host of provisions propping up the nuclear industry.
Tell your Senators to STOP S. 1111
The most dangerous aspect of the bill is the renewal of the Price-Anderson Act, a 1957 law which caps the industry’s liability for nuclear disasters at only $13 billion. The Price-Anderson Act makes US taxpayers liable for the full costs of nuclear disasters – which could run into the hundreds of billions of dollars – and exempts the insurance industry from covering homeowners and businesses for damages from those disasters.
Taxpayers should not be the insurance company for the nuclear industry. Let your Senators know that S. 1111 is bad news for US taxpayers and further entrenches the status quo of dirty, dangerous, and expensive nuclear power in the country and abroad.
