Bill to Preserve Historic Hanford B Reactor Clears Key Committee

Posted: Updated:

NBCRightNow.com - A bill to make Hanford's B Reactor a national historic park is moving forward from a key committee.

On Thursday, the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources approved the Manhattan Project National Historical Park Act. The bill now moves to the U.S. Senate.

One of the composers of the bill, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell, says the bill is "an important step towards preserving the B Reactor's place in American history."
