Congress Stalls on Hanford Funding

RICHLAND, Wash.- Millions of dollars in Hanford funding could be up in the air when the Senate returns in February.

Last week, they left without a new budget, and when they return, Democratic leaders say they'll stick with last year's budget and move on to 2008 funding.

The Department of Energy says they're working hard to get as much money as possible.

They say cleanup shouldn't be hampered.
