This is the June 16, 1994 hearing on "Wapa Allocation of Hydroelectric Power," held before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Natural Resources, House of Representatives. From the opening statement of George Miller: "The purpose of today's hearing is to consider the distribution of 7,000 megawatts of hydroelectric power sold by the Western Area Power Administration. This electricity is generated at Bureau of Reclamation and Corps of Engineers dams in the Colorado, Missouri and California's Central Valley river basins. The administration is currently reviewing proposals made by W AP A officials to effectively lock in the allocation of this extremely valuable resource for up to the next 40 years. Locking in power allocation could make it impossible for the Federal Government to provide low-cost WAPA electricity for potentially deserving uses, including water pumping related to fish and wildlife restoration, Indian tribes, mass transit and a variety of other purposes." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Thomas Heller, Clifford Barrett, Thomas P. Graves, James Henderson, Jan Schori, Thomas S. Martin, William H. White, Daniel P. Beard, Bruce C. Driver, Paul Little Judy Knight-Frank, and Michael Epperson.
