After a House Rules Committee vote, funding for the proposed Chemistry Metallurgy Research Replacement facility is still alive for FY2013
The battle in Washington continued this week in the House as Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) sponsored an amendment that would have nixed Rep. Mike Turner’s (R-Ohio) amendments from last week that would breathe new life into the CMRR project.
Markey’s amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act did not make it out of the House Rules Committee. The entire bill, however, is being debated in the House.
Turner’s amendments, meanwhile, made it through.
