Congressional panels approved two preliminary appropriation proposals with subtle implications for Los Alamos National Laboratory’s budget prospects
The full House Appropriation Committee, typically a step ahead of their Senate counterparts, approved their funding proposal Tuesday evening, while the Senate Energy and Water subcommittee was just beginning a similar process on the other side of the Capitol Wednesday morning.
The result, shaving and shifting relatively small amounts of funds relative to the administration’s request, reflected some differing priorities between the two Houses to be resolved farther down the road before a final bill can be approved.
The House proposal, which will go next to the full body for consideration, authorized a total of $26.9 billion for the Department of Energy; the Senate subcommittee came up with $27.4 billion, or about $500 million difference between the two committees.
In the recent past, a good part of the difference between the two Houses at this point in the process has had to do with funds for LANL, but that appears to be less of a factor this time around.
