Energy Secretary Rick Perry is coming to Oak Ridge on Monday at the invitation of U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander, a Tennessee Republican.
U.S. Representative Chuck Fleischmann, a Republican whose district includes Oak Ridge, will also attend.
Oak Ridge has several U.S. Department of Energy or National Nuclear Security Administration sites. (The NNSA is a semi-autonomous agency within DOE.) The Oak Ridge sites include East Tennessee Technology Park, Oak Ridge Office, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Office of Scientific and Technical Information, and Y-12 National Security Complex.
There are other corporations that also do significant work for DOE in Oak Ridge, including Centrus Energy and ORAU, among others.
