Rep. Heather Wilson, R-N.M., shared her views on Los Alamos National Laboratory, its current mission and future direction during a Chamber Roundtable discussion Monday morning.
There is clear concern among the group of business people gathered at Los Alamos National Bank about the laboratory’s future because of the retirement of its most powerful advocate, Sen. Pete Domenici, at year’s end.
Wilson told the group Congress must be made aware of where the real added value is that’s unique to Los Alamos.
“It’ll probably be on the extremely difficult problems that others can’t do,” she said.
“Do you think you’re powerful enough in Congress to make that point?” asked a businessman.
Wilson explained that she is respected in Congress and last week met with Sen. Robert Bennett, R-Utah, likely to be the next ranking member following Domenici’s retirement, she said.
“Pete brought him out here to Los Alamos,” she said.
