(IDAHO FALLS) – The U.S. Department of Energy has fined Battelle Energy Alliance more than $400,000 for violations at the Idaho National Laboratory. The contracting company runs several research and lab facilities at the INL and allegedly violated quality assurance requirements and occupational radiation protection. Officials say the fines will be paid using corporate funds, rather than taxpayer money.
