On Wednesday, New Mexico senators and representatives traveled to Los Alamos to hold a public hearing on the Radioactive & Hazardous Materials Committee. Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard (D-Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Sandoval and Rio Arriba) chaired the hearing that focused on recent developments at LANL and WIPP surrounding waste management, disposal and the impacts our current policies and practices have on New Mexico. “Since being elected to office, I have worked to bring other legislators to Los Alamos and LANL, to ensure one of our area’s greatest resources is protected, said Garcia Richard. “Today’s meeting was a critical one because safety issues around recent events at WIPP and the temporary loss of the nation’s only functioning waste repository, highlight how important it is for the State to find additional ways to address these growing concerns.
