When Nevada Senator Harry Reid announced he would not run for re-election, he reopened the debate about nuclear waste disposal in this country. Reid had staunchly opposed a plan to store the waste at Yucca Mountain in his state. But never say never. Today five members of Congress, led by the Republican chairman of the House Environment and Economy Subcommittee are visiting the site. Katie Tubb is a research associate and coordinator for the Heritage Foundation who has studied this issue.

House GOP offers shutdown-debt plan, but no agreement yet

House Republicans are offering to pass legislation to avert a default and end the 11-day partial government shutdown as part of a framework that would include cuts in benefit programs, officials said Friday. Republicans also seek changes in the three-year-old health care law known as Obamacare as part of an end to an impasse that has roiled financial markets and idled 350,000 federal workers. President Barack Obama has insisted he will not negotiate with Republicans over federal spending - or anything else - until the government is reopened and the $16.7 debt limit raised to avert the possibility of default.
