CMRR funding in limbo

-A A +A

LANL: Top brass remain mum on the project’s future

By John Severance

What’s next for the future of the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement Nuclear Facility in the next fiscal year is just about anybody’s guess.

Last week, an article in the Nuclear Weapons and Materials Monitor, said Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) officials are bracing for a “massive cut” to the proposed CMRR facility.

“We’re not expecting funding for CMRR (in FY2013),” a LANL manager told the trade publication.  “Right now, we’re planning to go without.”

In FY 12, the project did receive $200 million in funding but the final Congressional report said that no construction activities were funded.

The Los Alamos Monitor submitted a list of 10 questions concerning the CMRR project to the NNSA Los Alamos Site Office on Jan. 18.

The following day, an email came back, stating the questions were forwarded to Washington.
As of this morning, there has been no response to the questions, almost two weeks since the list was forwarded to the D.C. office.
