To counter threats from countries like North Korea, the Obama Administration proposed a 23 percent increase in the budget for nuclear weapons.

That's money for nuclear weapons research, manufacturing and maintenance over the next five years.

Sandia National Laboratories wouldn't see any new money, but Los Alamos National Laboratory would see a 7 percent increase.
