Urgent Action Alert 4/9/08
Please Disseminate Widely
CALL AND E-MAIL THE SECRETARY OF ENERGY'S OFFICE TODAY
WITH AN URGENT REQUEST FOR SECRETARY BODMAN
and e-mail him.
The Deadline for response to the National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) Complex Transformation Supplemental Program Environmental Impact Statement (SPEIS) is this Thursday, April 10th. As you most likely are aware, the NNSA held hearings around the country and in New Mexico last month. Their plan is, in short, to make New Mexico a nuclear sacrifice zone by consolidating the facilities necessary to make nuclear weapons in New Mexico from uranium mining and enrichment - to pit and warhead production - to testing and dumping - all here in New Mexico.
The document that we were requested to comment upon is more than 1400 pages. During the hearing process multiple requests were made of the NNSA for an extension of the time to adequately review the document. After appeals from Senator Bingaman, Congressman Udall, and Ron Curry, the Governor, the Secretary of the New Mexico Environment Department, to extend the comment period for 90 days, the NNSA has refused. We have reached the deadline date.
We request everyone to please barrage Secretary of Energy Bodman's office and e-mail box with requests for a 90 day extension for the comment period.
Please help this effort if you care about the future of New Mexico
Dear Secretary Badman,
Please grant a 90 day extension for the NNSA comment period for the SWEIS.
After repeated requests from the leaders of the state of New Mexico. our Senator, our Congressman, our Governor, our Environment Department, our local Mayors and other community leaders to extend the comment period to the NNSA on the SPEIS for their Complex Transformation plan, Theodore Wyka has refused the request for the extension. We the people of New Mexico are appealing to you. This Complex Transformation plan will effect the lives and livelihoods of New Mexican's for generations to come.
