SANTA FE – The director of Los Alamos National Laboratory won appreciation from state legislators Wednesday for appearing on the day before Thanksgiving to brief them on the lab’s current restructuring plans.The legislators may have been looking for a silver lining but they settled for a clearer picture of how lab officials expect to gain a little more budgeting flexibility as they face uncertain funding prospects for next year and the future.Many agreed with lab director Michael Anastasio’s expressions of concern for the individuals, families and the affected communities of northern New Mexico.“We all know what we’ve read in the papers,” said the chairman of the LANL oversight committee, Sen. Phil Griego. “What is the anticipated result?”Anastasio walked the committee through the plan, not yet formally approved by the Department of Energy, for trimming 500-750 jobs, up to about 9 percent of the workforce.
