I have been blessed to have one of Idaho's greatest gems in my "backyard" and have been a proud supporter of INL and the amazing work that is done at the site, for many years. Too often, people question the need of our state lab and fear the research that's done there, because they don't understand how conscientious and careful the employees and contractors are that work there. In addition, they don't understand all of the amazing benefits that Idaho enjoys because we have INL in our State. I am a proud supporter of's some of the benefits we receive thanks to INL:

In Fiscal Year 2017, Idaho National Laboratory operations added $1.94 billion to Idaho’s gross domestic product and spent $139 million with Idaho businesses.

•INL directly employed an average of 4,256 workers during the fiscal year. That makes laboratory contractor Battelle Energy Alliance Idaho’s 6th-largest private employer and 9th-largest employer when compared to all public and private businesses.

•INL increased personal income in Idaho by $862 million. INL economic impacts accounted for 1.3 percent of all personal income in the state.

•Nearly $935 million of economic output was generated through INL suppliers and employee household spending.

•INL operations accounted for 12,027 jobs across Idaho, a 6.7 percent increase over FY 2016.

•INL spent $139 million with Idaho subcontractors located throughout the state.
