The University of California today (June 30) issued the following statement.

STATEMENT BY RICHARD C. ATKINSON
PRESIDENT, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has advised us that it will explore ways in which additional expertise might help address security issues that are important to DOE, the defense laboratories and the nation. The University welcomes the opportunity to work with DOE in this effort and to create a path forward that meets all security needs. I am confident that, working together, DOE and the University will succeed.
