ABSTRACT

Nuclear Weapons Complex Modernization, Hearing Before the Strategic Forces Subcommittee of the Committee on Armed Services, House of Representatives, One Hundred Tenth Congress, Second Session, July 17, 2008   [open pdf - 9MB]

From the statement of Ellen Tauscher: ""Today, we will consider the National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) plan for modernizing the nuclear weapons complex, what the NNSA calls its plan for a Complex Transformation. I want to welcome our first panel of distinguished witnesses, starting with the Administrator of the NNSA, Under Secretary Tom D'Agostino. It is a pleasure to have you back before the subcommittee, Under Secretary, and thank you very much for all the cooperation and all the great work you and the thousands of people that you represent do every day for the American people. Following the Administrator's testimony, we will be joined at the witness table by the team of experts that manage and operate the NNSA nuclear weapons complex, whom I will introduce at that time. This topic has not received the attention it deserves. The maintenance and modernization of the nuclear weapons complex is a prerequisite to the continuing success of the science-based Stockpile Stewardship Program." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Terry Everett, Gene Aloise, Thomas D'Agostino, Marylia Kelley, and C. Paul Robinson.
