    House sponsor urges Senate to follow suit on bipartisan bill designed to improve national security, encourage domestic uranium supply.

    A bill that seeks to restrict future U.S. imports of Russian uranium cleared the House of Representatives with bipartisan support Monday night.

    U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., who chairs the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, sponsored H.R. 1042, the Prohibiting Russian Uranium Imports Act.

    A companion bill, S. 763, is pending in the Senate.

    “We hope the Senate will move swiftly to pass this important legislation so it is sent to the President’s desk to become law,” said Rodgers, who represents eastern Washington’s 5th Congressional District, in a press release.
