Senator Pete V. Domenici
A case in point for the “if I can’t have it -nobody can have it” mentality.
re: The NIF (National Ignition Facility) which is a very large laser project at Lawrence Livermore Labs.
Ole Petey wants the money back in his home state of New Mexico. But the NIF is already being built in Ca, so for Ole Petey the answer is to shut it down , no more construction money. Hey Pete, its $147 million, you guys in the senate spend more than that on fritos and bean dip for the senate break room every year.

And just how do the interests of New Mexico trump the very real security and energy interests of the REST OF THE COUNTRY ?
