House panel hears weapons proposal

-A A +A
By The Staff

House appropriators were expected to adopt a subcommittee report that dealt several zeros to Los Alamos National Laboratory in next year’s budget.

The House Appropriation Committee this morning considered a proposed energy and water bill that added $2.4 billion to the current budget and $2.1 to the president’s budget request for energy and water, while prescribing significant reductions in nuclear weapons programs.

Approval by the committee would move the bill to the full House. The outcome of that process would then be negotiated with the Senate, which has failed to deliver a bill of its own in recent years.

Last week, Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M., joined two other senators who wrote a letter and memorandum to President Bush calling on him “to reverse the dangerous decline in our strategic nuclear deterrent.”

The senators advised the president that the administration “must be prepared to issue a veto threat” if the House bill failed to support some of the provisions they considered essential, like the Reliable Replace Warhead (RRW).
