This is the October 28, 1993 hearing on "BPA Proposals" held before the Task Force on Bonneville Power Administration of the Committee on Natural Resources, House of Representatives. From the opening statement of Peter A. DeFazio: "The way things are in Congress, we try and do several things at once, so this hearing conflicts with the first-ever major reform of the Mining Act of 1872, which is going on in the Energy and Mining Resources Subcommittee of the Natural Resources Committee. I am on that subcommittee. Although I think we have got it pretty well covered, there may be some extraordinary occurrences which would require my personal attendance. Otherwise, I am at-tending via proxy. And obviously that has captured the attention of Mr. LaRocco and others who would like to have been here today, but are otherwise engaged. So we will move ahead. We will establish a good record here. We are holding a hearing at a very timely place in the history of BP A As many of you know, this week we finally have a firm nonpunitive proposal from the administration on the so-called buyout or repayment reform by BPA regarding the older appropriated debt. It is timely to have you here addressing that question and a number of the other questions that were put by the committee." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: William H. White, Ted Bottiger, Mike Kreidler, William K. Drummond, Ralph Cavanagh, James R. Sherrill, Lorraine Bodi, Stephen F. Johnson, Jim Ramseyer, Sara Patton, and Randall W. Hardy.
