Fallout continues from CMRR: Legislative decision leaves more questions than answers in Los Alamos

-A A +A
By John Severance

It’s been a long week for those involved with the Chemistry Metallurgy Research Replacement facility.

And the extent of the fallout remains uncertain.

Lab director Charlie McMillan has scheduled an all-hands meeting for LANL employees Tuesday to discuss the CMRR project, which was deferred for five years after the funding was yanked in the President’s FY13 budget request.

The Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce has become involved in an attempt to figure out the impact on several businesses and subcontractors.

“Since this was announced, the chamber has started hearing from several businesses who have quite a number of people working on projects that would be affected,” said Kevin Holsapple, the Executive Director, Los Alamos Commerce & Development Corporation/Chamber of Commerce.

“We are trying to get a gauge to get a better idea of how big the problem is. We are engaging a survey with businesses and lab contractors and sub-contractors and we want find out what their situation is.”

Holsapple said anybody interested in taking the survey can get a copy from his office. And the results of the survey should be released within a month or so, he said.
