The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022 will fund various Oak Ridge projects. 

Spenser Hurwitz, a spokesman for U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., told The Oak Ridger in an official email that the act includes approximately $1.67 billion in funding for programs and projects connected to Y-12 National Security Complex and other Department of Energy operations in Oak Ridge.

These programs include domestic uranium enrichment, depleted uranium modernization, the nonproliferation stewardship program, the Uranium Processing Facility, the Lithium Processing Facility, 17-D-710 West End Protected Area Reduction Project, and Oak Ridge nuclear facility decontamination and decommissioning.

Hurwitz and Blackburn worked for this funding. Blackburn in an interview with The Oak Ridger praised Oak Ridge and its role in working with both lithium and uranium.

“Oak Ridge is important to our state and also to our nation,” Blackburn said.
