Page 400 - We believe such a ban must be viewed in the context of a time when we do not need to depend on nuclear deterrence to ensure international security and stability and when we have achieved broad, deep, and verifiable arms reductions, substantially improved verification capabilities, expanded confidence-building measures, and greater balance of conventional forces.
Page 71 - The interest rate to be used in plan formulation and evaluation for discounting future benefits and computing costs, or otherwise converting benefits and costs to a common time basis, shall be based upon the average yield during the preceding fiscal year on interest-bearing marketable securities of the United States which, at the time the computation is made, have terms of 15 years or more remaining to maturity: Provided, however, That in no event shall the rate be raised or lowered more than one-quarter...
Page 432 - Programs for the express purpose of providing a research and development facility to demonstrate the safe disposal of radioactive wastes resulting from the defense activities and programs of the United States exempted from regulation by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Page 383 - ... and consent of the Senate to ratification (with a report containing any plans the President may have to negotiate supplemental verification procedures, or if the President believes it necessary, any understanding or reservation on the subject of verification which should be attached to the treaty) of the Threshold Test Ban and Peaceful Nuclear Explosions Treaties, signed in 1974 and 1976, respectively; and (2) propose to the Soviet Union the immediate resumption of negotiations toward conclusion...
Page 73 - This not only mitigates future losses to life and property but also reduces the need for costly Federal flood control works as well as the demand for other Federal, state, and local services such as providing major disaster assistance before, during, and after floods.
Page 566 - The wholesale power customers, in turn, provide service to millions of retail consumers in the States of Arizona, California, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming. The...
Page 257 - Fermilab ($3.6 million) which is scheduled to be completed in 1989. This upgraded computing capability is required to analyze the large volume of new physics data coming from the Tevatron program. This request also provides $5.8 million for General Plant Projects at Brookhaven National Laboratory which are required to keep the general plant (eg, buildings, roads and utilities) in good operating condition.
Page 228 - These raw materials, or •feedstocks, can be converted into fuels by thermochemical or biochemical processes, or can be combusted to produce steam, heat, or electricity. Biofuels currently supply 2.8 quads, or approximately 4% of US energy needs, primarily from the combustion of wood. Although this amount of energy is noteworthy, current applications do not exploit the major potential of this unique resource: its ability to produce liquid and gaseous fuels, the energy products this Nation needs...
Page 285 - ... of fusion to basic research in the fields of plasma physics and atomic physics, and the important role of this program in technology transfer to US industry. The Plan also recognized the importance of the Fusion program — a complex scientific effort directed at a practical application. This Plan has been accepted by both the Congress and the technical community.
Page 264 - Brookhaven's National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS). The scattered light emerges with a much higher energy than it started with (thus becoming gamma rays with an energy of 300 million electron volts) as a result of the collisions with the electrons. By detecting the electrons from the NSLS beam which have been hit by the light, scientists can select a beam of gamma rays of the appropriate energy for use in experiments. LEGS is unmatched in the intensity and purity of the gamma ray beam it will...
