32 jobs restored at energy lab (before Jr arrives)
Advertisements [?],1...

Thirty-two high-paying jobs that were terminated earlier this month at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory are being restored two days before President Bush arrives to tout alternative energy.

U.S. Sen. Wayne Allard's office said late Sunday that the 32 jobs that had been cut are being restored, effective immediately.

He said Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman told him Sunday that those laid off were being called back to work. Allard, R-Colo., said the rehires were made possible by shifting unused funding from other Department of Energy accounts.

"I am pleased that my efforts to persuade the Department of Energy to find a way to restore those jobs have paid off," Allard said. "This is the best news we've had in a long time."
