This is an errata sheet for the July 15, 1993 joint hearing on "National Biological Survey Act of 1993," held before the House Subcommittee on Environment and Natural Resources of the Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries. From the opening statement of Gerry E. Studds: "This is technically a joint hearing of the Subcommittee on Environment and Natural Resources and the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands. And may I just observe that it may be the first such joint hearing on a matter that is clearly in the jurisdiction of both committees but has not yet technically been referred to both. It reflects the degree of cooperation between the committees involved. We are very, very pleased with that. [...] We are here to consider H.R. 1845, a bill to implement the initiative of Secretary Babbitt to establish a National Biological Survey within his Department. It is an innovative and, I think, long overdue and highly imaginative idea and that will constitute my opening statement out of respect for the Secretary." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Bruce Babbitt, Jack Fields, James V. Hansesn, Bill Horn, Jim Little, Max R. Peterson, John C. Saxton, Mark L. Shaffer, Rollin D. Sparrowe, Gerry E. Studds, Charles H. Taylor, Jolene Unsoeld, and Bruce F. Vento.
