In honor of his many contributions to arms control efforts, about 30 members of the Los Alamos Committee on Arms Control and International Security (LACACIS) gathered at the Central Avenue Grill Monday to honor retiring Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M.

Several members commended the senator for his dedication.

“When you say ‘The Senator’ in Los Alamos everybody knows who you mean,” said Randy Erickson, deputy division leader of the Los Alamos Decision Applications Division.

Erickson said the same is true in Moscow and London when the discussion is on plutonium disposition. He credited Domenici with institutionalizing the plutonium disposition program to give it continuity, and with providing the funding to bring the Russians into the program.

Domenici was a player in keeping nuclear defense programs going during the Cold War, said Terry Hawkins, director of Defense Programs at LANL.

The senator was also a major advocate of non-proliferation programs, Hawkins said, especially the Nunn-Lugar program which has been critical to keeping nuclear weapons out of the hands of terrorists..
