Newly sworn-in Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., met Thursday with Los Alamos National Laboratory Director Michael Anastasio in Washington, D.C.
In discussing the laboratory’s budget, Udall described Anastasio as “upbeat. He felt good about this budget year,” said Udall during an interview from Washington Thursday evening.
The laboratory’s future looks bright, too, he said, explaining that strong science is needed in all of the challenges facing the world.
“Our national laboratories are front and center in that effort and I’m going to be urging this administration to carve out an important role for us,” Udall said. “Science and scientific endeavors are important to President-elect Obama. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him visit our laboratory very soon.”
All 17 national laboratory directors work together in a group with the energy secretary and Udall said he wants to use that force to help Congress understand the importance of science in finding solutions to current challenges.
