DOE Says Funding Needed to Keep Jobs at Vit Plant

RICHLAND, Wash.- With Vit Plant work set to resume, the Department of Energy is pushing hard for continued funding.

DOE leaders worry that if funding isn't restored in the 2009 Budget, they may have to start cutting construction jobs around that time.

DOE is asking for $690 million a year to fund the project.
