On the National Day of Remembrance for Downwinders, Rep. Greg Stanton renewed his commitment to bring justice to victims of radiation exposure in Mohave County in northwestern Arizona and Clark County in southern Nevada. He will introduce the Downwinders Parity Act of 2021 later this week. Stanton began his fight in the last Congress by pushing to amend the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA), which makes it possible for victims of illnesses resulting from atmospheric nuclear testing and uranium industry employment to file claims with the Department of Justice. His bill would update RECA to include both Mohave and Clark counties as affected areas—a change Stanton argues is long overdue.
