This is the February 24, 2016 hearing on the "DOE for the 21st Century: Science, Environment, and National Security Missions," held before the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of Tim Murphy, "Today we will begin to examine how well the Department is prepared to meet its responsibilities for the 21st century in this hearing of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. This includes what is necessary to enhance the performance of the department's national laboratory system, which harbors the technological tools and knowhow for advancing our nuclear security as well as the nation's edge in important science, energy, and environmental missions. Indeed, a strong national laboratory system, well managed and overseen, increases the prospects for a strong DOE mission performance across the board. I know from my own experiences with the National Energy Technology Laboratory, located in my district, which has developed carbon capture storage technology that has allowed the nation to achieve its lowest carbon emission rates in over two decades, the essential role our national laboratories can play to meet the nation's needs. When it comes to the various missions for DOE, none surpass in importance the Department's critical responsibility for maintaining the nation's nuclear deterrent and technological superiority on all aspects of nuclear security." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Norman Augustine, Richard Mies, Jared Cohon, TJ Glautheir.
