NERPs bill moves to House

A House committee has authorized $5 million a year for five years to fund seven National Environmental Research Parks (NERPs). The parks, including one at Los Alamos National Laboratory are located within Department of Energy facilities, but have been authorized, but not systematically funded for nearly four decades.

Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, D-N.M. announced today that the full Committee on Science and Technology had approved the measure and forwarded it to the House Floor. Lujan introduced the authorizing bill, which was heard by a subcommittee of earlier this month.
