Rev. Holly Beaumont of Santa Fe stood up near the end of the Regional Coalition of LANL Communities meeting Friday in Española and asked a question that seemed to be making the rounds in Northern New Mexico.
Apparently, a rumor had been circulating that the coalition has been lobbying lawmakers to restore funding for the Chemistry Metallurgy Research Replacement facility.
The Obama administration and the National Nuclear Security Administration had made the decision to defer the CMRR project for five years. But there are other house and senate committees that are trying to bring the project back to life.
“So what’s the coalition’s position on CMRR?” she asked.
Moderator David Abelson was quick to respond.
“I said this a few weeks ago,” Abelson said. “The board does not have a position on CMRR. There has been no advocacy in D.C. for it and the board has not even discussed it. The board is in the process of getting more information about CMRR.”
Newly elected coalition chair David Coss, also the Santa Fe mayor, said, “We have lobbied for more cleanup and we are moving on to economic development, but we have never lobbied for CMRR.”
