Biden apoia prolongamento da ajuda a vítimas de teste nuclear
August 10, 2023 - O Presidente Joe Biden manifestou apoio ao prolongamento da ajuda federal a pessoas afetadas pela radiação de testes de armas nucleares como o teste Trinity de 1945.
“I’m prepared to help in terms of making sure that those folks are taken care of, by the way,” Biden said during a speech Wednesday in New Mexico, about 110km from the Trinity test site.
The state’s place in U.S. history as a testing ground has received more attention recently with the release of “Oppenheimer,” a movie about physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and the top-secret Manhattan Project.
Last month, the U.S. Senate voted to expand compensation. The provisions would extend health care coverage and compensation to so-called downwinders exposed to radiation during weapons testing to several new regions stretching from New Mexico to Guam, AP said.
