A new coalition has formed in the U.S. Senate to promote issues related to the Department of Energy national laboratories. Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Jim Risch (R-ID) lead the bipartisan caucus, which will work to ensure that the labs receive sufficient funding and supportive policy changes. The other founding members of the caucus are Senators Mark Kirk (R-IL), Chris Coons (D-DE), Tim Johnson (D-SD), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Tom Udall (D-NM), Martin Heinrich (D-NM), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), and Mike Crapo (R-ID).
