Mr chairman, thank you for the opportunity to appear before the Finance Committee this afternoon to introduce the President's nominee for Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Public Affairs and Public Liaison, Roger Bolton.

Roger's family made the mistake of settling on the wrong side of the Ohio River, in Cincinnati. But Roger had the good sense to at least partially offset this disadvantage by marrying a woman from Kentucky. His good judgment is further demonstrated by the fact that his wife, Lynne Melillo Bolton, is an extremely talented young lady. She served as my first press secretary after I was elected to the Senate in 1984.

Through Lynne, I got to know Roger Bolton as a man of experience and competence. He is well qualified to assume this important position, having served in similar roles on Capitol Hill and in the Executive Branch. He was press secretary and administrative assistant to Congressman Clarence J. Brown of Ohio, and later worked at the Joint Economic Committee.

After serving as director of speechwriting for Reagan-Bush '84, Roger joined the Administration, first at Treasury and later at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and the White House. During the time that Roger was serving at USTR, I found that he was extremely responsive to the trade policy concerns of firms in Kentucky and throughout the country. He could be counted on to see that the agency responded to their concerns, and I know he will do the same at Treasury. Roger was also an outstanding spokesman for U.S. trade policy. He made an excellent presentation at a conference I sponsored in Hebron, Kentucky on International Trade and Export Opportunities. This is a fine nomination, and I thank the Committee for the opportunity to appear on Roger's behalf. I strongly recommend his confirmation to my colleagues.


Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I appreciate the opportunity today to present myself to members of the Committee.

I am honored to have been nominated by President Bush for the position of Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Policy Management. If I am confirmed by the Senate, I look forward to working with Congress as a member of the Administration on the many issues under the Treasury Department's jurisdiction.

The position of Assistant Secretary of Policy Management, as I see it, has several major components. First and foremost, the Assistant Secretary, working with the Secretary and Deputy Secretary, has to ensure that the policies and objectives of the Secretary are thoroughly developed and communicated within the Department. In addition, the Assistant Secretary must see that policy is reviewed and coordinated within the Treasury Department and help create an environment in which differing points of view are allowed to develop and are presented in such a way that the Secretary can make a sound and well informed decision on any issue that comes to his desk. Finally, I think the Assistant Secretary is responsible for closely monitoring the coordination of Department policy with the rest of the Executive Branch.

I believe I have been very lucky to have a combination of public and private sector management experiences which will help me carry out these duties. As an Administrative Assistant to a United States Congresswoman and then to a United States Senator, I learned a great deal about the process of government and the important relationship between the Executive and Legislative Branches. In addition, my jobs as an executive in business have taught me a great deal about strategy, goal setting, and achieving results.

When I served under Representative Millicent Fenwick, I had the opportunity to learn first hand about many of the issues which fall within the responsibilities of the Department

As the Chief of Staff to Senator Nicholas Brady, I developed a close professional relationship with him which I think will be invaluable in the job of Assistant Secretary of Policy Management. In addition, during Mr. Brady's short tenure in the Senate I was able to build on what I had learned in the House of Representatives. As a partner in an investment group and as an executive of a publicly traded company, I have been involved in a wide range of financial and legal issues which I believe has given me a solid background in the practical economic issues which business and wage earners face in today's world.

I think all of these experiences will help me as an Assistant Secretary of Treasury and specifically in the Policy Management assignment.

I know you are all very busy and therefore, I wanted to keep my remarks brief, however, I will of course be happy to answer the Committee's questions.

Prepared Statement of Senator STROM THURMOND


Mr. Chairman: I am pleased to be here today to introduce to the Committee Charles H Dallara, who has been nominated by President Bush to be Deputy Undersecretary for International Affairs at the Department of the Treasury.

Mr. Dallara was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina. In 1970, he graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics. Four years later, Mr. Dallara entered the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, where he received a Master of Arts in International Economics, and in Law and Diplomacy. In 1986, he received his Ph.D. in International Economics from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.

Mr. Dallara served in the United States Navy from 1970-1974. During his service, he was a gunnery officer, deck officer, navigator, legal officer, and personnel officer on the USS Sampson. Additionally, he served as an aide and Flag Lieutenant to Rear Admiral Samuel L. Gravely, Jr. in Newport, Rhode Island.

Mr. Dallara has had considerable experience in the area of international economic policy. Over the last 13 years, Mr Dallara has held several positions of responsibility at the Department of the Treasury. In these jobs, he has been generally responsible for international and domestic economic issues. Additionally, Mr. Dallara is currently the United States representative at the International Monetary Fund. I believe that his considerable experience will be most valuable to Mr. Dallara in the position to which he has been nominated. It is with much pride that I appear today to present this fine man to the Committee.



Mr.Chairman, members of the committee, I appreciate having the opportunity to come before you today to present to the committee one of my constituents, a fine Virginian, Mrs. Kay Coles James, whom President Bush has nominated to be Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

I have known Kay for some years now, and while we have not always seen eye-toeye on every issue we have discussed, I have always been impressed by her understanding of the issues she presents, her sensitivity to my views when we disagreed, and her excellent presentment during our discussions.

Kay is a Virginian from the word "go", as her resume clearly indicates, having graduated from John Marshall high school in Richmond and going on to receive her Bachelor of Science Degree from Hampton Institute in Hampton, Virginia.

Kay is perhaps best known for her most recent position as Director of Public Affairs for the National Right-To-Life committee. In the more than three years that she held this position, Kay articulately presented the Committee's views on perhaps the single-most controversial and contentious issue in public policy today.

The position to which Kay has been nominated is to be Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs, and I believe she is well-qualified for that post.


Mr. Chairman, it is a great pleasure to return here today to introduce again to your committee Dr. Charles Dallara, President Bush's nominee to be Assistant Secretary of Treasury for International Affairs.

First, let me welcome to the Senate Dr. Dallara's wife Carolyn and his two children, Stephen and Emily.

It seems like it was just last week that we were all together for Dr. Dallara's last confirmation hearing. In fact it was over six months ago, and in a different administration.

Dr. Dallara comes to this position with an impressive array of experience and background. Dr. Dallara served our country in the United States Navy in the early 1970s as an admiral's aide and a flag lieutenant to a rear admiral, serving as executive assistant with a variety of duties, including flotilla watch officer at sea. This coincided with my tenure as Secretary of the Navy so I can personally attest to how hard we worked the flag lieutenants and admirals' aides.

Dr. Dallara received his Masters of Arts in international economics, Masters of Arts in law and diplomacy, and his Doctorate of Philosophy from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy of Tufts University.

After receiving his Masters Degrees in 1975 and 1976, Dr Dallara came to Washington to work in the Treasury's Office of International Monetary Affairs as an International Economist.

Mr. Chairman, that important position was just the beginning of Dr. Dallara's Washington career. He has been working in the Treasury, specializing in interna
