Call House Speaker Mike Johnson’s DC office at 202-255-4000 today and tell him NOW to extend the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act already passed by the Senate.  

RECA, offering compensation from injuries related to nuclear bomb testing and production/storage, is due to expire in ONE WEEK!  

RECA gives cancer sufferers relief in money and medical assistance. We have spent $12 trillion to make nuclear weapons and nuclear energy, but the victims of nuclear enterprises deserve government accountability!

The RECA funding is a pittance in comparison!
