B Reactor Preservation Effort On Verge Of Securing New Funding

WASHINGTON, D.C.- Efforts to preserve the B Reactor and other Manhattan Project-era facilities could soon get a boost to the tune of over $800,000.

Two separate bills making the rounds in Congress provide a total of $865,000 to complete a National Parks Service study on how to best preserve the aging facility.

Rep. Doc Hastings (R- Washington) says the money will be well-spent. 

"These funds will complete the ongoing B Reactor preservation study," Hastings said.  "The B Reactor story deserves to be told, and I'm pleased to be a part of the preservation efforts."

The House could vote on the bills as early as next week.
