CMRR funding still alive

-A A +A

Politics: NDAA bill up for crucial vote

By John Severance

After a House Rules Committee vote, funding for the proposed Chemistry Metallurgy Research Replacement facility is still alive for FY2013

The battle in Washington continued this week in the House as Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) sponsored an amendment that would have nixed Rep. Mike Turner’s (R-Ohio) amendments from last week that would breathe new life into the CMRR project.

Markey’s amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act did not make it out of the House Rules Committee. The entire bill, however, is being debated in the House.

Turner’s amendments, meanwhile, made it through.

The amendments, which would authorize $160 million to the project, passed even though the White House and the House Energy and Water Appropriations Committee decided to zero out CMRR funding this year.

“So, he not only gave the project funding, but he is also trying to get around Energy and Water by making CMRR a defense project that would probably be covered by a defense appropriations committee,” Project on Government Oversight investigator Mia Steinle said.
