LANL Contractor To Pay $10 Million
LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) — The
contractor that runs Los Alamos National Laboratory says it will pay $10
million to cover some of the costs for fixing a faulty $213 million
The Albuquerque Journal reports the money will
cover “potentially unallowable costs” incurred in construction of the
system, which was built around the only place in the country where
nuclear weapon triggers can be made.
Citing a joint statement
from the lab and the National Nuclear Security Administration, the
Journal says the money will come from Los Alamos National Security, the
private contractor that runs the lab.
Officials have estimated it
will take an additional $41 million and another six months to fix the
system, which was supposed to be up and running this summer.
