Energy must be safely and reliably delivered to Hoosiers at the least-cost possible. Consumer-oriented energy policies that create investment in renewables and energy efficiency make sense as the costs of coal and nuclear energy become more expensive.
Countless nuclear waste shipments will crisscross Indiana’s roads if plans for the country’s first nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain in Nevada advance.

CAC is asking state residents to weigh in with their Congressional representatives about the dangers.
These are the issues of immediate importance we are working on right now.
