This is the June 22, 2017 hearing on "The President's Budget Request for the U.S. Department of Energy for Fiscal Year 2018," held before the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, United States Senate. From the opening statement of Lisa Murkowski: "The budget request for the Department of Energy takes a different approach this year than we have seen in the recent past. The President has made a concerted effort to increase funding for the National Nuclear Security Administration to focus on our nuclear weapons program. This is a portion of the Department that falls outside the scope of our Committee here. The Administration has also requested robust funding for the cleanup of nuclear waste left behind by our country's Cold War legacy. To offset those funding increases, the budget request proposes deep cuts to research and development for energy and science. It also proposes to phase out innovative programs, such as the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), that have had demonstrated success." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Rick Perry.
