ESHOO'S NUCLEAR RECORD
Long-term incumbent Anna Eshoo, in office from 1993 to the present, has consistently voted against support of our domestic nuclear industry throughout her tenure in Congress. Her rejection of this completely viable and extremely imperative tool in our fight against climate change is also a rejection of new and innovative technology.
In the 103rd Congress, Rep. Eshoo voted in favor of an amendment to H.R. 2445: The Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act that would cut funding that was previously appropriated to the Department of Energy’s Advanced Liquid Metal Reactor and related fuel cycle programs.
In the same congressional session, Rep. Eshoo voted in favor of a failed amendment to H.R. 4506, an energy appropriations bill, that would eliminate funding for the Gas Turbine-Modular Helium Reactor program (GT-MHR).
In the 104th Congress, Rep. Eshoo voted in favor of a failed amendment to H.R. 3816 in an attempt to delete funding for the Department of Energy’s Advanced Light Water Reactor program.
Fast forward to the 2nd Session of the 112th Congress and Rep. Eshoo voted in favor of a failed amendment to H.R. 5325 that would cut $100 million in funding for uranium enrichment research and subsidizing commercial nuclear activity.
