Energy and Water Development Appropriations for 2013, Part 8, National Nuclear Security Administration, Hearings Before a Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations, House of Representatives, One Hundred Twelfth Congress, Second Session, February 29, 2012 [open pdf - 9MB]
This is part 8 of the "Energy and Water Development Appropriations for 2013" hearings held before the House Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development. From the opening statement of Rodney P. Frelinghuysen: "I hold the nuclear security enterprise to be the single most important mandate of the Department of Energy and certainly the greatest mandate of our subcommittee. However supportive I am of your mission, it is still the responsibility of this committee to take apart and examine every budget line, scrutinize it, and ensure the taxpayers' dollars are well spent. Last year, that preview of process put us at odds with those who felt that our national security enterprise simply had to have a much higher level of funding. Our final product, however, showed that our strategic security could be maintained, and even strengthened with constrained resources. This year, as last, we need a credible and affordable strategy for maintaining our nuclear deterrent." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Rodney P. Frelinghuysen, Thomas D'Agostino, Donald Cook, and Sandra E. Finan.
