D’Agostino to Speak on Future of the Nuclear Weapons Complex
WASHINGTON, D.C. – National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Administrator Thomas D’Agostino will announce his vision for the future of the nuclear weapons complex. The plan announced on Tuesday will be released as a draft Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (SPEIS) in January.
The SPEIS contains different scenarios for transforming the nuclear weapons complex. The preferred alternative would consolidate missions and facilities within the existing NNSA sites. This means that NNSA would eliminate redundancies in missions, capabilities, and facilities, eventually saving money in the future.
Details of the event are as follows:
