First news on fee money sent to LANL

"The latest performance review calls for docking LANS $7.7 million in incentive fees for the May incident at an electrical power substation that left one worker hospitalized for more than a month with burns over 30 percent of his body, and for potential contamination stemming from the handling of highly enriched uranium at a Nevada facility twice in 2014."

In a year when they nearly killed an employee in an electical accident, after several years of upward trending electrical near-miss accidents, and just a month after they had been specifically warned about this specific shortfall, it only costs LANL 7.7M.

"Chump change" to Charlie!

National disgrace and epic failure to most everyone else.

Charlie and LANL are laughing all the way to the bank about how cheap it is to keep on having these major safety failures, year after year.

Correction; we've only had minor safety issues since 2006.
