On June 7, the federal Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) program is set to expire, ending a lifeline for families sickened by the country's nuclear testing. . NPR reports that advocates have gathered on Capitol Hill to fight for so-called atomic veterans and save the RECA program. Over the past year, multiple bipartisan bills were approved by the Senate to reauthorize and expand the program. . Those bills stalled out in the House, due to some Republicans objecting to the cost of the program. . According to sponsors of the bills, those concerns were addressed by reducing the initial 2023 estimate of $143 billion down to between $50 and $60 billion. . NPR reports that RECA has provided payments up to $75,000 to those sickened by the nuclear testing program, totaling $2.7 billion to over 400,000 recipients. . One of the groups fighting to have the program extended is the Tularosa Basin Downwinders Consortium. . The group works to raise awareness of illnesses linked to Trinity, the government's code word for the first nuclear bomb test, which took place in 1945. Martinez White, a member of the group, says fallout from those tests resulted in at least six cases of cancer in her family of ten. . I would often go home for funerals and everybody in Tularosa was dying of cancer. We knew something was very weird. , Martinez White, Tularosa Basin Downwinders Consortium member, via NPR.

In February, Hur's yearlong investigation into whether President Biden mishandled classified documents ended without enough evidence to support criminal charges. In February, Hur's yearlong investigation into whether President Biden mishandled classified documents ended without enough evidence to support criminal charges. House Republicans were provided a transcript of Biden's interview with Hur, but they wanted the audio, which the DOJ denied. As a result, House Republicans were moving to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress. On May 16, the Department of Justice told House Republicans that the president asserted executive privilege over audio from his interview with the special counsel. The move protects Garland from criminal exposure as GOP lawmakers seek to hold him accountable. Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte explained the DOJ's actions in a letter. The Attorney General must draw a line that safeguards the Department from improper political influence and protects our principles, our law enforcement work, and the people who carry out that work independently, without fear or favor, Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte, via letter . The Committees seek to hold the Attorney General in contempt not for failing in his duties, but for upholding them, Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte, via letter . With the information you now have, the Committees ought not to proceed with contempt and should instead avoid unnecessary and unwarranted conflict, Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte, via letter . White House Counsel Ed Siskel also wrote a letter supporting the assertion of executive privilege. . The absence of a legitimate need for the audio recordings lays bare your likely goal—to chop them up, distort them, and use them for partisan political purposes, White House Counsel Ed Siskel, via letter
