The proposed LLNL 2010 budget is down 7 million

Anonymous said...

The proposed LLNL 2010 budget is down 7 million from last year. Not bad but will Congress approve it? Repubs are already whining that the cuts aren't deep enough.

The budget over at LANL is going down by 7% (hundred of millions). In that context, a loss of only 7 million at LLNL doesn't look so bad.

Hardly surprising. Congress has been bleeding LLNL white for many years now. The party affiliation means nothing anymore. They get their jollies from hurting you. And like an abused spouse you keep letting them beat you up, and worse still you vote for them.

NOTHING is worth this kind of treatment. The world does not revolve around 7000 East Avenue. Leave now, you can find a new job a lot easier than you believe. Just take the steps, go out and build a new life.

Weapons is down
FY09 - 1,012,460,000
FY10 - 987,421,000

Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation is up
FY09 - 83,033,000
FY10 - 117,683,000

Total NNSA is up
FY09 - 1,099,299,000
FY10 - 1,105,104,000

-----

Nuclear Energy (Fuel Cycle R&D) is down
FY09 - 2,940,000
FY10 - 0

Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is down a bit.
(No money for Hydrogen but new money for Fuel Cell and Solar R&D)
FY09 - 7,628,000
FY10 - 6,166,000

Science is down
(Bio & Envir cut by 10 million)
FY09 - 53,167,000
FY10 - 43,283,000

Health Safety and Security the same
FY09 - 3,214,000
FY10 - 3,214,000

Fossil Energy R&D (Carbon Sequestration) is down

Also remember that WFO and direct Dept of Homeland Security work does not show up in these numbers. Any Congressional "earmark" projects are also not in it.

And there's something new called Site Stewardship
FY09 - 0
FY10 - 35,000,000
This appears to be for Envir cleanup projects which dropped
FY09 - 21,446,00
FY10 - 0

---

Employment (Contractor) stayed the same
NNSA
FY09 - 4,240
FY10 - 4,240

May 9, 2009 12:43 PM You missed it too. This proposed budget is a big win for the lab. You need to re-read the post and try to calm down a little bit.

This is a Lab forum, not a place for DNC or RNC attack dogs. If that is all you can post, go elsewhere.

47 is a former employee and not an attack dog for any party: just calling a spade a spade.

If you would open this forum up to some critical discussions, the blog might turn out to be of some use!

Losing money from the weapons budget means LC and NIF lose. More job losses for the "jewels" of the lab. Can't see how that can be spun as good news.
