The Regional Coalition of LANL Communities released a statement following its press conference Friday in Santa Fe.
“Adequate funding is needed to ensure environmental liabilities are addressed. Funding cuts are undermining DOE’s commitment to a safe and timely cleanup. The hazardous materials incident that occurred last week at TA-21 raises serious questions about the challenges that the site faces in remediating legacy waste and reinforces the urgent need to fund cleanup efforts.
“Funding for high-priority risk-reduction activities such as stabilizing material and moving high-risk waste from Area G to WIPP is needed to protect human health, water supplies and the environment. Further, funding cuts are destabilizing the regional economy. … Working together, the Regional Coalition will fight for its citizens by pressing for a compliant cleanup, modernization of facilities to accomplish the national security missions and steady funding that will result in job retention and creation.”
Greg Mello of the watchdog Los Alamos Study Group also weighed in. He sent out a press release highlighting the following items.
• No employee layoffs are necessary under current budget.
• Overall, LANL budgets and programs are oversized, overpriced and oversold.
