This is the April 28, 1993 hearing on "BPA Proposed Fiscal Year 1994 Budget" 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: "Today the Natural Resources Committee's Bonneville Power Ad-ministration Task Force holds its first hearing. I particularly want to thank Chairman Miller for the creation of the task force and for naming me its chairman. I am looking forward to the hearings that we will hold over the next six months, and I want to play a creative and active role in helping the BPA to meet the challenges it faces, both in the near term and during the next decade. Today's hearing will focus on BPA's near-term financial condition. A unique set of circumstances have forced BPA to consider a rate increase that could exceed 20 percent. But the BPA's short-term problems will not go away with a few good water years or higher world aluminum prices. The problems are much deeper than that, and the fix must be more fundamental. So regardless of the facts of the current situation, I believe we would be here today no matter what." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Randall W. Hardy.
