APPROPRIATIONS FOR 1988

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1987.
DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

WITNESSES
JOHN S. HERRINGTON, SECRETARY OF ENERGY
ELIZABETH E. SMEDLEY, CONTROLLER

Mr. BEVILL. The Committee will come to order. Mr. Secretary, we are always pleased to have you appear before us with your fine group. You may proceed as you wish.

Mr. HERRINGTON. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Once again, it is an honor to be in front of this Committee this year. I would like to submit for the record a full statement, with the Chairman's permission.

Mr. BEVILL. Without objection, it will be made a part of the record.

[The statement of Secretary Herrington appears at the end of this hearing.)

SECRETARY OF ENERGY Mr. HERRINGTON. And with a few brief opening remarks, we have with us today, first of all, a number of people, energy program directors. Mr. BEVILL. If you will raise your hand so we can see each of

you.

ecretary whom you navs glad torant Secretari

Mr. HERRINGTON. John Meinhardt from the Defense Programs.

Al Trivelpiece, the Secretary's Science Advisor, head of our science research, Dr. Trivelpiece, whom you have seen before. Mr. BEVILL. Many times, and we are always glad to see you.

Mr. HERRINGTON. Donna Fitzpatrick, who is Assistant Secretary for Conservation and Renewable Energy. Dave Rossin, who is our Assistant Secretary for Nuclear Energy. Ray Berube, from the Health Environment Office, and Del Bunch who has been intimately involved in the N-Reactor safety program and the upgrades that we are now going through in that particular area. They all appreciate the opportunity to be here.

Our FY 1988 budget for the Department of Energy meets two important objectives, in my estimation: It continues strong support for essential programs in our energy, science and defense mission areas. And, two, it contributes to our efforts to reduce the growth in the Federal budget, and to meet the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings reduction totals.
