March 5, 2018

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer announced a three-part plan to protect and expand the University of Rochester’s Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE) during his visit to the LLE on Monday, March 5. The Trump Administration’s Fiscal Year 2019 budget, announced last month, proposed significant cuts to the lab and a “three-year ramp-down” in federal support. During his visit, Schumer praised the LLE for creating jobs and advancing scientific research in physics, optics, and photonics. “The Laser Lab is vital not only to Rochester but to the United States and our national security,” Schumer said. “Turning out the lights on the Laser Lab is a horrible idea, and I promise you, it will not happen under my watch.” (University of Rochester photo / J.
