The Senate gave final approval to the 2010 Energy and Water Appropriation Bill, which contains funding for Los Alamos National Laboratory. The bill now goes to the White House to be signed.
Senators Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall, both New Mexico Democrats, voted with the majority. In a joint announcement Thursday, they called special attention to funds for New Mexico’s two national laboratories, the Waste Isolation Pilot Project and a variety of key water-related projects.
The senators made a priority this year to restore $20 million in funding for upgrades to the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE)), that were cut from the administration’s budget earlier this year.
“I’m very glad we were successful in our efforts to prove that LANSCE is too important to the country to shut it down. With this funding, LANL can continue to use LANSCE to perform a key component of its stockpile stewardship mission,” Bingaman said. “In general, this bill does a very good job funding our national laboratories, WIPP and key water initiatives in our state.”
