The Los Alamos National Laboratory had asked New Mexico Environment Secretary Ron Curry to reconsider his ruling on open burning.
On Dec. 21, Curry did reconsider, according to a LANL spokesperson.
But at press time, it was uncertain what, if any, change has been made.
“We’re very appreciative that Secretary Curry granted our motion. It allows us to continue our research on improvised explosive devices—research that saves lives at home and overseas,” LANL spokesman Fred DeSousa said.
