Mattis to look into Navy use of radioactive materials in Bethpage

Defense Secretary James Mattis is looking into Sen. Chuck Schumer’s request that the U.S. Navy account for radioactive materials it used, handled or stored at a Bethpage site where aviation and space research and manufacturing took place for decades.

Schumer (D-N.Y.), in a one-on-one meeting last week, asked Mattis to follow up on the senator’s concerns about radioactive materials at the state Superfund site.

“They had a productive discussion on a range of issues, including a number of environmental concerns Sen. Schumer raised on behalf of his constituents,” Defense Department spokesperson Laura M. Seal said in a statement to Newsday on Tuesday. “Secretary Mattis is looking at these issues closely and will provide follow-up responses to Sen. Schumer.”
