“Funding for national security and science at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), including the CMRR Project” is one of the top four priorities for the county council’s 2012 Federal Agenda.
Council will have to work even harder to achieve that goal, now that President Obama’s 2013 budget proposal recommends putting CMRR funding on hold for five years.
“We’re very disappointed. I’m really trying to understand what went wrong with this. The administration was in support of this at one time,” Council Chair Sharon Stover said.
Neither county officials nor the business community were surprised by the decision.
