Rogers Statement on House Passing FRIB Funding


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, MI-08, issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed an Energy & Water Appropriations bill that contains $40 million in funding for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams at Michigan State University.

"Michigan State University has long worked to make the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams a centerpiece of America's research profile and a critical part of Michigan's economic future. Ensuring that it receives dedicated federal funding will continue to help Michigan stand out for hosting one of the premier nuclear physics programs in the country."

FRIB is expected to bring in $1 billion in nuclear science research to mid-Michigan within its first 10 years and create an estimated 400 permanent positions in the area for scientists, engineers and other facility staff as well as 5,000 construction jobs to build the project. Construction on the project is scheduled to begin this year and finish by 2020.
