More Money Recommended For MSU’s Rare Isotope Beam Project

DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow say a Senate subcommittee has significantly increased the recommended annual funding for a planned $600 million physics research facility at Michigan State University.

The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water has budgeted $30 million in the 2013 fiscal year for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beam.

MSU won a national competition to land the project in December 2008, and design work is under way.
