Boeing (BA -0.5%) gets a hand from Washington, as Congressman Chaka Fattah, a Senior Democratic Appropriator on the Energy and Water Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee, calls on the Argonne National Laboratory to provide its expertise to help resolve the Dreamliner's mechanical problems. In a letter to its Director, Fattah asks the national lab - a leader in lithium battery technology - to lend its expert knowledge to BA as the company works with the FAA to address the technical problems related to the Dreamliner's lithium battery leakage.
