Private donor steps in to help Fermilab -- Updated

Looks like a private donor stepped in to help keep Fermilab running with fewer layoffs thanks to a 5 million dollar donation.

A commenter says that the layoffs are not impacted it will just reduce furloughs. Since roughly the same time the comment came in I got a hit from Fermilab so I will assume that is correct.

Better than nothing I guess, hope this doesn't prevent the feds from coming up with some extra cash.

Thats incorrect. The private donation is only stopping furloughs. Layoffs will proceed.
