LLNL Statement Regarding Establishment of Department of Homeland Security

"Our Lab has been cited in a number of media stories today relative to President Bush’s proposal to create a new Homeland Security cabinet level agency. We have not yet received any official details on this proposal."

"Over the past few years, our Lab and our sister NNSA laboratories have played important roles in the war on terrorism and we look forward to enhancing our future contributions to this cause. At the same time, we remain committed to executing our core responsibilities of Stockpile Stewardship and our other federal programs. We will continue to strongly support the President and the country in all of these critical national security areas."C. Bruce Tarter, Director
