    Senator Edward M. Kennedy has represented Massachusetts in the United States Senate for thirty-six years. He was first elected in 1962 to finish the term of his brother, President John F. Kennedy. Since then, he has been elected to six full terms, and he is now the third most senior member of the senate. The efforts to bring quality health care to every American is a battle that Kennedy has been waging ever since he arrived in the Senate. Recent achievements include the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, which makes it easier for those who change their job or lose their job to keep their health insurance, and the Children's Health Insurance Act of 1997, which makes health insurance more widely available to children through age 18 in all 50 states. A strong supporter of clinical research, Senator Kennedy cosponsored the Clinical Research Enhancement Act and has been a vocal advocate of stem cell research. He is currently the senior Democrat on the Labor and Human Resources committee in the Senate. PMID:10822894

    Kalt, J.P.

    1982-04-01

    A study of recent Senate votes indicates that post-embargo regulation of the petroleum industry has been explicitly designed, at the expense of efficient resource allocation, as a mechanism for the redistribution of wealth from crude-oil producers to crude-oil refiners and refined-petroleum-product consumers. Senate voting behavior is significantly related to the wealth interests of these constituencies, and the policymaking process has been somewhat captured by private-interest groups. These results tend to support the view that the domestic energy crisis is over wealth distribution and not over market crisis or institutional failure. It is also found that some form of ideological public-interest behavior related to questions of fairness, freedom from intervention, and other values has also played an important role in Senate voting and policy formation. 24 references, 4 tables.

    A hearing on the management of the Department of Interior's (DOI) Onshore Oil and Gas Leasing Program examined the question of geology versus market forces in determining lease boundaries and lease offerings. At issue was the question of possible fraud and the loss of revenue to states when leases are sold over the counter or by lottery, as described by Senator Dale Bumpers of Arkansas and the Governor of Wyoming, and the potential environmental damage that could result from an accelerated federal leasing program. Representatives of DOI described leasing procedures and efforts to balance the need for orderly exploration while also meeting economic and environmental goals.

  13. State of the petroleum industry: Hearing before the committee on energy and natural resources, United States Senate

    SciTech Connect

    1999-07-01

    This hearing was held to consider the plight of the oil industry. The domestic industry is being devastated. The potential long range impact of low prices on the country will be immense. Although, the current low petroleum prices have helped fuel a brisk national economic growth in all segments of the economy, the low prices are killing the domestic oil industry. These low prices are causing a loss of a petroleum infrastructure as more and more Americans in the oil industry are forced out of the business. Not only is this bad for producers, it is forcing the US to become dependent on unstable producing countries. Every drop of oil produced in the US means jobs and income for the states and the nation. Every barrel imported means increased dependence and loss of jobs. The committee heard from the following: US Senators from Indiana, New Mexico, Montana, North Dakota, Illinois, Texas, South Dakota, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alaska, Oklahoma, and Wyoming; and representatives from the petroleum industry, and the Energy Information Administration.

    At a March 10 Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, several senators questioned the wisdom of the Clinton administration`s proposal to try to {open_quotes}clarify{close_quotes} a key provision in the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty that would permit the development and deployment of highly capable theater ballistic missile interceptors. The senators stressed that the executive branch should not try to change the pact in this manner without Senate approval. In response to questions, Arms Control and Disarmament Agency (ACDA) Director John Holum said without the proposed changes, the United States may not test new anti-tactical ballistic missile (ATBM) defense systems currently under development.

  15. Portrait of a pragmatic conservative: Senator James A. McClure of Idaho and the politics of United States energy and Middle Eastern affairs, 1967--1990

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Woods-Davis, Wilma

    This dissertation examines the political career of Senator James A. McClure as it relates to United States energy policy and Middle Eastern affairs, 1967-1990 and within the context of the modern (post-World War II) conservative movement. A pragmatic conservative, McClure sought a balance between the extremes of issues, especially as they related to energy and United States foreign policy toward the Arab-Israeli conflict in the Middle East. More often than not, this quiet senator from Idaho was the voice of reason and moderation, carefully analyzing all sides of the issue before submitting his views on the subject. His approach to energy policy represents his conservative expression of policy, while his approach to the Arab-Israeli conflict in the Middle East demonstrates his moderation, reason, and pragmatism. He called for a national energy plan that would promote domestic production of natural energy resources, energy conservation, and peace in the Middle East. He early warned that if the United States did not develop a comprehensive energy policy, the nation would soon face energy shortages. His cautionary statements went unnoticed until the first energy crisis in 1973 and 1974. Although McClure did not support reliance on imported oil to meet energy demand, he did advocate a change in direction in foreign policy. The United States must take a more even-handed approach to the Arab-Israeli conflict and consider the Arab position too in the historic debate. He continually urged a pro-Israeli congress to rethink its policies in this area. In addition to his senate duties, McClure acted as an unofficial goodwill ambassador to many of the Arab leaders in the Middle East. He made at least nine trips to the Middle East to discuss issues of energy, trade, peace, and war. He developed a working rapport with some Arab leaders, and did much to enhance the United States image in the region. He did this at a time in American history when Congress and the public were slow to

    The gasoline-allocation program was a failure in 1979 and may have actually contributed to gasoline lines. It failed to address adequately the competitive concerns of the oil industry, particularly with respect to retail-gasoline dealers. DOE failed to coordinate its efforts with State and local authorities, and failed to prevent fraud and abuse within the program. The federal government failed to reassure the public during a period of uncertainty. Two major causes for the failure were a lack of departmental planning and preparedness before 1979 and inherent flaws in the structure of the program. The key flaws were the use of an historical base period and, perhaps, an overly broad congressional mandate which required the program to address conflicting priorities. DOE is only slightly more prepared for an oil-supply disruption now than before 1979. The report recommends developing sound contingency plans for a supply disruption, increasing the levels of priority and attention given such plans, and revamping the structure and procedures of the exceptions process. 232 references.

    Many developing nations that have not signed the Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer are acquiring inefficient, chlorofluorocarbon-based refrigeration equipment which could lead to large increases in emissions of ozone-depleting chemical in the future. In order to assist developing nations in acquiring non-ozone depleting chemicals and technologies, the parties to the Montreal Protocol agreed to provide special funding for that purpose. A bill, S.2666, was introduced in the Senate of the United States on May 22, 1990 to authorize the United States contribution to an international account established by the parties to the Montreal Protocol for this purpose. The United States share of that assistance has been determined during recent negotiations to be a minimum of $25,000,000 over the next three years.
