Bingaman: LANL needs to make warhead triggers (Listen again)
(2011-09-08)
(KSFR) -
A U.S. Senate committee has approved preliminary budgets for the energy department, including more than $700 million in increases for the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The proposed funding would give Los Alamos $185 million for environmental cleanup and $240 million for the controversial plutonium facility designed to make more triggers for nuclear warheads. Sen. Jeff Bingaman says replacement warheads are still needed despite the president's plan to continue working on worldwide disarmament.
