This is the March 25, 2015 hearing titled, "Energy and Water Development Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2016," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development of the Committee on Appropriations. From the opening statement of Lamar Alexander, U.S. Senator from Tennessee: "We are here today to review the President's fiscal year 2016 budget request for the Department of Energy, an Agency with three critical missions: nuclear security, science and energy, and environmental management. This is the subcommittee's fourth and final hearing this year on the President's budget request […] The Department's budget request for 2016 is about $30.5 billion. This is an increase of about $2.5 billion over the amount Congress appropriated last year. […] The President's entire discretionary budget request this year exceeds the Budget Control Act's spending caps by about $74 billion. This is not realistic. In fact, if we were to fully fund just the Department of Energy's budget request of $30.5 billion, our subcommittee would need almost the entire increase available, about $3 billion, in both defense and non-defense for fiscal year 2016 under the Budget Control Act spending caps." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ernest J. Moniz and Franklin Orr.
