BERKELEY, Calif.— University of California regents face a big decision this week: Compete for the management contract of Los Alamos National Laboratory or walk away from the atomic birthplace it has managed since World War II.
A committee of UC's governing Board of Regents will recommend today whether to compete, and the full board will vote on that recommendation Thursday.
"This is a significant decision for the university," UC spokesman Chris Harrington said. "We expect a very thoughtful and thorough discussion."
Here's a suggestion for the UC Regents: Don't vote for bidding. Instead, take a generous portion of what UC would have spent in bidding and place it into a trust fund for Todd's family.Post a Comment
