TRIDEC President Expects Hanford Furloughs to be Immediately Rescinded

Posted: Updated:

NBCRightNow.com - Roughly 9,000 men and women can breathe easier Wednesday night knowing they will most likely have a job to go to on Monday.

TRIDEC President and CEO Carl Adrian fully expects all of the furlough notices that may have gone out Wednesday to be immediately rescinded with a deal in D.C. reached.

TRIDEC's been talking with our state's leaders throughout this shut-down making sure they know just how bad Hanford furloughs could be. According to TRIDEC, the fact that no one's been laid off yet should be commended.

"At some of the other DOE sites, they didn't have as much carryover or maybe didn't manage their resources as well. So Hanford, I think, needs to be complemented at least locally in the fact that they've been good stewards of the funding," Adrian said.

Lawmakers are now looking to the start of 2014. The new deadline and debt ceiling limit will likely bring the same fight to the forefront of the nation and the Tri-Cities again.
