Lab Short of Funds For Clean-up Effort

Published In: The Independent

Full funding to clean-up contaminated groundwater and soil at the Lawrence

Livermore National Laboratory was left out of this fiscal year's budget.

The fiscal year began Oct. 1.

Marylia Kelley, executive director of Tri-Valley CAREs, said she has been

working with local Congressional representatives in Washington. She said

she has gotten a positive response. However, funding can't be approved

without a reprogramming request from DOE. Along with the request, DOE would

have to provide the rational behind it. "It's a pretty straightforward

rational. I'm confident Congress will act in a speedy and timely manner to

restore the funding," declared Kelley.
