This is the June 8, 1993 hearing on "Department of Energy Budget and Reorganization," held before the Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources of the Committee on Natural Resources, House of Representatives. From the opening statement of Richard H. Lehman: "The department is being buffeted by a fundamental change in one of its core missions-away from 50 years of nuclear weapons production and toward cleanup of the unfortunate environmental results of that production. The slow progress of the Nuclear Waste Disposal Program continues to frustrate virtually everybody. Operation of the Uranium Enrichment Program is about to be turned over to the new U.S. Enrichment Corporation. The DOE [Department of Energy] re-mains responsible for the massive cleanup at the old gaseous diffusion plants. Congress finally passed land withdrawal legislation for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant at the end of the last Congress, but the schedule for a test phase at WIPP [Waste Isolation Pilot Plant] is already falling behind that set out in the act."
