The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee will consider a bill today to create a Manhattan Project National Historical Park that would include Hanford's B Reactor.
The next step would be consideration by the full Senate.
The bill was introduced by Sens. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., and Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., with the support of Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.
A similar House bill, introduced by Rep. Doc Hastings, R-Wash., has passed out of committee.
