Dear Mr. Loux,

As a result of the United States Chamber of Commerce advocating the Yucca Mountain Project, the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce has dropped our membership with that organization. Consequently, we have decided to reallocate the $3000 in yearly dues to your agency in support of your efforts in fighting the project.

On January 31, 2001, the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce Board of Trustees adopted a resolution opposing Yucca Mountain as the federal choice for nuclear waste storage. We stand by this declaration and you have our full support in helping to stop this misguided plan.
