Message from Fermilab Director Pier Oddone

In mid-April the federal government enacted a Continuing Resolution for the rest of this fiscal year, and over the past few weeks the Office of Science has allocated funds to its various offices and programs. The laboratory still awaits the final details from the Office of High Energy Physics, but we have received positive news on the level of funding we can expect to receive for the remainder of the fiscal year. Based on this news I can tell you that we will be able to run the Tevatron as planned through September and that there will be no furloughs at Fermilab during that time. Thanks to all of you for continuing your excellent work across all areas of the laboratory during the last few months’ very uncertain budget climate.
