WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen announced her co-sponsorship of the Downwinders Parity Act, legislation that would extend eligibility for compensation due to sickness caused by radiation exposure from nuclear testing at the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS).

BACKGROUND: The Downwinders Parity Act would amend the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) – which currently offers up to $50,000 in compensation to some miners, workers, downwinders, and other individuals living in certain parts of the country, who are suffering from the effects of uranium mining and nuclear testing carried out during the Cold War – to extend eligibility to all individuals exposed to radiation in Clark County.
