Radioactive fallout from the nuclear bomb tests of the Cold War era traveled to every state in the nation and protecting Americans from radiation exposure is a national issue. In response, Congressman Matheson has introduced the Safety for Americans from Nuclear Weapons Testing Act. Among other things, the Act requires a full Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) prior to any resumption of nuclear weapons testing in Nevada; Congressional authorization for resumption of weapons testing, public notification prior to any test and independent radiation monitoring with all data and reports available to the public.
