Letter to the Editor: Voice Opposition to Shutdown

By Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard
Los Alamos
 
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.
