Yucca debate planned

The Reno Sparks Chamber of Commerce has scheduled an early morning debate on the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump project for Nov. 12 at the chamber’s board room at 1 E. First St. (Reno City Hall). It is open only to chamber members.

Dump supporter Ty Cobb, a state legislator, will argue for the project, and Nevada Agency for Nuclear Projects director Bruce Breslow will argue against it.

A chamber news release on the event reads, “Please come to our Public Policy Forum with an open mind, a desire to hear both sides of the issue, and a willingness to ask questions.”
