Commission on Nuclear Projects
Attn: Brian McKay, Chairman
1802 N. Carson Street, Suite 252
Carson City, NV 89701

Dear Mr. McKay:

I regret that my schedule will not allow me to attend your meeting scheduled for April 3, 2001. The subject of the transportation and storage of Nuclear Waste in Nevada is of great interest to Boulder City.

I want to voice my support of providing funding for an education/outreach program surrounding the transportation of nuclear waste through the nation. I understand that $5 million dollars is to be funded out of the general fund, and that these funds are to prevent the location of a federal nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain. I feel this to be a wise investment of taxpayer dollars.

I believe that education is the key to a more pro-active stance from the general public on this important issue. It is the responsibility of our state leadership to provide this education.

I look forward to the opportunity of providing additional input in the future.

Sincerely,

--/s/--
