Jefferson Lab to Get $75 Million in Stimulus Money

Looks like Christmas came early for Jefferson Lab! They are receiving a substantial amount from the recently-passed stimulus bill.

The Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, better known as Jefferson Lab, will funnel $65 million of it into a $310 million upgrade that will double the energy of the lab's Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility.

The other $10 million will be used to modernize lab facilities, Jefferson Lab said in a press release.
