From the opening statement of Mark Udall: "The purpose of this hearing is to examine the Nuclear Weapons Stockpile Program of the National Nuclear Security Administration, or the NNSA, as well as the cleanup programs associated with former Defense production sites of the Department of Energy. We will have two panels today. The first panel will be Mr. Bruce Held, the Acting Administrator of the NNSA, who will speak to the overall NNSA budget. The second panel will consist of Dr. Don Cook, the Deputy Administrator for Weapons Programs; Admiral John Richardson, the Deputy Administrator for Naval Reactors; and Mr. Owendoff, the Acting Principal Deputy assistant Secretary, Office of Environmental Management, Department of Energy.
