With the deadline of Friday, the pressure is on in Washington to come up with a budget resolution.
If a compromised is not reached, the federal government will shut down, which means the Los Alamos National Laboratory will have to close.
Republicans and Democrats, of course, differ on what needs to be cut.
But they actually do agree on one thing.
The House Republicans unveiled a budget plan Wednesday morning, which calls for “full funding” to modernize the nuclear weapons infrastructure in the United States.
The report was light on details, but the report did say, ““full funding for the modernization of the infrastructure that builds and maintains the nation’s nuclear weapons systems.”
The Obama administration proposed a 20 percent increase from 2010 to 2012 to the nuclear weapons budget.
On Wednesday, National Nuclear Safety administrator Thomas D’Agostino testified before  the Strategic Forces Subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee  D’Agostino was joined by Deputy Administrator for Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Anne Harrington in discussing the resources requested for NNSA’s nuclear nonproliferation program. And last week, LANL director Michael Anastasio also testified.
