House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings (R-Wash.), Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (R-Tenn.), and Congressman Ben ray Luján (D-N.M.) Friday introduced bipartisan legislation (H.R. 1208) in the House of Representatives to establish a Manhattan Project National Historical Park that will encompass facilities in Hanford, Wash.; Oak Ridge, Tenn.; and Los Alamos.
The Manhattan Project was an unprecedented top-secret program to construct a nuclear weapon during World War II. This effort combined military and scientific resources and involved hundreds of thousands of workers.
"The Manhattan Project is a significant chapter in America's history. The establishment of this park will ensure that this history is preserved and that facilities, such as Hanford's B Reactor, will remain open and accessible for future generations to visit. I'll continue to work with advocates in these local communities, as well as with my colleagues in both the House and the Senate, towards the goal of getting this bill enacted into law," Hastings said.
