it is a key asset in the Tri-Cities
innovation economy that will be

into new lab space will
help ensure that PNNL is well

as we work to prepare our community
for life after Hanford."

Congressman Norm Dicks
"Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has been a leader in delivering R&D solutions to solve our nation's homeland security needs. The national assets that support this mission must be preserved and replaced as the Laboratory vacates Hanford's 300 Area to meet the schedule in the Tri-Party Agreement for environmental cleanup. I fully support this transition and will work with my Congressional colleagues, the Department of Energy and the Department of Homeland Security to ensure this critical work is uninterrupted."
