Whether or not you agree with the Affordable Care Act, the viability and sustainability of Los Alamos and LANL depend on a continuing resolution to be passed and a budget approved.
This issue is beyond partisan politics and threatens thousands of families in Los Alamos and the surrounding area. I am speaking with our federal delegation and urging them to continue to press their fellow members until Congress restarts the federal government.
Los Alamos and our entire region depend on a predictable federal budget process, whether it be for LANL or our national monuments like Bandelier. I urge you to call the entire congressional delegation in New Mexico and tell them you are against the continuation of the government shutdown.
I will continue to talk with LANL as well as our federal delegation and keep a close eye on this situation as it develops, to ensure our biggest employer isn’t affected.
