The Tularosa Basin Downwinders say they want to be included in the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act. Other Americans affected by nuclear tests have been compensated, but this group of New Mexicans says they have been ignored.

The hearing began around 6 a.m. Mountain Time on Wednesday. A livestream is available here
