MOX Fact Faux Sheet

In early March 2016, Senator Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) tweeted a graphic with "background information" on the construction progress of the Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication Facility (MOX).

Though the fact sheet does not include any sources for the information provided, it seems to come from the contractor in charge of the project.

POGO found that much of the information directly contradicted what the Department of Energy has previously stated, most notably during a Congressional hearing on the project just five months prior.

Senator Graham has been one of the leaders in the fight to keep MOX funded despite the fact that the program is vastly over budget, will not meet many of the stated goals, and could even be putting nuclear material at risk.
