Kingston Secures Critical Funding, Legislative Save for MOX Facility
A year-end funding measure passed by Congress contains critical funding and a legislative save for the MOX, or mixed oxide, Fuel Fabrication Facility located at the Savannah River Site just ouside Augusta, Georgia. Congressman Jack Kingston (GA-1), who sits on the House Appropriations Committee, helped lead the effort to secure $345 million in critical funding and protect the facility which the Obama Administration attempted to shutter earlier this year by putting it on “cold standby.” “This MOX facility has been authorized by Congress, supported by multiple administrations, and has seen $4.7 billion in taxpayer investment,” said Kingston.  “The Obama Administration’s misguided attempt to shutter it would only serve to cost taxpayers more money, complicate an international agreement, and needlessly elminiate thosands of jobs.  I hope that the support we were able to build up this year will continue to keep this important project advancing toward completion.”
Athens Poultry Lab Moves Forward in Year-End Appropriations Bill
Efforts led by Congressman Jack Kingston (GA-1) to bring the Southeast Poultry Research Laboratory (SEPRL) into the 21st century took a major step forward in the year-end appropriations bill.  "This is a huge and hard-fought step forward for the groundbreaking work being done in Athens,” said Kingston.  “The Southeast Poultry Research Lab is of national and international significance and leads the world in poultry health research.  The USDA, along with chicken and turkey processors all over the world, will continue to benefit from the research being done in Athens.” The legislation funds a major $45 million upgrade to modernize the research facility with the latest in technology and infrastructure. This is a downpayment on a planned $155 million overhaul of the facility which would consolidate and modernize a campus of buildings.  According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture there is not sufficient laboratory space for the scientists to work.

Once again, Congress has made clear that the project should move forward without further delay. I hope the Obama Administration will join us in honoring its commitment to this project of regional and national importance. In the words of the President himself, 'we can't wait.'" “Georgia has fought tirele
