What’s next for the future of the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement Nuclear Facility in the next fiscal year is just about anybody’s guess.
Last week, an article in the Nuclear Weapons and Materials Monitor, said Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) officials are bracing for a “massive cut” to the proposed CMRR facility.
“We’re not expecting funding for CMRR (in FY2013),” a LANL manager told the trade publication. “Right now, we’re planning to go without.”
In FY 12, the project did receive $200 million in funding but the final Congressional report said that no construction activities were funded.
