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

    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.

The purpose of the hearings was to examine economic indicators of the Soviet Union and China in the context of military and national security interests. The study and report represent a cooperative effort on the part of the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency. The report focuses on Gorbachev's modernization program, its potential for success, and the military implications if it should fail. The witnesses felt that unlike the Soviets, the Chinese probably understate military expenditures; and the military triangle involving the US, Soviet Union, and China has benefited both the US and China.

  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.

    A briefing and hearing led by representatives of the interagency task force sought information on the causes and consequences of the Chernobyl accident and the implications for US nuclear plants. Task force members summarized the findings to date, and indicated that graphite reactors in the US have a different design, and that the cooling system design was at fault. They also described the environmental and public health implications of the accident. Among the participants in the hearing were representatives of the Departments of State and Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, and citizen groups. A Soviet Embassy official reviewed the chronology of the accident and attempted to moderate its importance with a comparison to the explosion of the Challenger space shuttle. Additional material submitted by DOE and the House subcommittee follows the testimony of the 13 witnesses.

    A series of panels presented the views of environmentalists, ecologists, park personnel, oil and gas companies, and other interested persons and organizations at a hearing addressing land use policy as it applies to Yellowstone and other areas in the national park system. The witnesses presented ecological information,, identified potential and existing areas of conflict between resource conservation and development, and reviewed the existing state and federal procedures for managing ecosystems. At issue were competing claims for use of the land and conflicting interpretations of the ecological impacts of resource development activities. Political and economic pressures are major factors, as are the differences in short-term versus long-term effects of decisions that weigh national security and environmental quality. An appendix with additional materials submitted by the Interior Department, the witnesses, and other interested parties follows the testimony of the 38 witnesses.

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.

    H.J. Resolution 3 banning the testing of nuclear weapons over 150 kilotons seeks to slow the arms race by urging Congress to ratify the 1974 Threshold Test Ban Treaty and the 1976 Peaceful Nuclear Explosions Treaty and urging the President to resume negotiations with the Soviet Union. The House Foreign Affairs Committee report supports the concept after a series of hearings with verification experts and the weapons and intelligence establishments. Verification and weapons reliability were the key issues of concern, but the committee concluded that politics rather than technology prevented a comprehensive test ban. The report also includes the reminder in the minority view that talks were suspended after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and that scientists need further testing to make weapons safer and less vulnerable to terrorist action.

The proposal would also define a facility`s {open_quotes}potential to emit,{close_quotes} upon which Title V permits are based.

    Leath, Audrey T.

    With the Cold War fading into history, economic competitiveness becoming the watchwords of the decade, and the space race against the Russians turning into probable cooperation, NASA is struggling to redefine its role. On November 16, the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Science, Technology and Space invited NASA Administrator Daniel Goldin, Martin Marietta CEO Norman Augustine, and Robert Frosch of Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government to offer their thoughts on NASA's plans, priorities, and budgetary difficulties. Augustine, who chaired the Committee on the Future of the U.S. Space Program in 1990, posed two questions: What does America want its space program to be, and can the country afford to pay for the program it wants? He stated bluntly that if the answers were incompatible, “we are unlikely to have a satisfactory program.”

    2012-06-01

    The U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations is once again discussing the Law of the Sea Convention (LOS). The treaty, which was adopted in 1982 by parties to a United Nations Conference as a framework for governing uses of the world's oceans, has been ratified by more than 160 countries, but the United States is a notable exception. The treaty has been approved twice by the Foreign Relations Committee but has not made it to a full Senate vote because of opponents' concerns about potential loss of U.S. sovereignty and U.S. access to the deep seabed, among other reasons. During a 23 May hearing of the committee, chairman John Kerry (D-Mass.), a strong supporter of the treaty, said U.S. ratification "is now more urgent than ever" and that to remain outside of the treaty "is fundamentally, directly counter to the best interests" of the United States.

    Flaws in the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that were exposed after Hurricane Katrina struck the U.S. Gulf Coast in August 2005 are too substantial to be fixed, and the agency should be replaced with a more capable structure, recommends a 27 April report released by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs. ``FEMA is discredited, demoralized, and dysfunctional. It is beyond repair. Just tweaking the organizational chart will not solve the problem,'' said Committee Chair Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine).

Instead of a specific date when the Secretary of Energy must prescribe an average fuel economy standard, the amendments give him 18 months after enactment of the bill. Other small changes are included.

    The committee recommends several amendments to H.R. 3653, a bill designed to improve nuclear insurance procedures. Among the amendments are the inclusion of storage, handling, transportation, treatment, or disposal of, or research and development on and changes dealing with reimbursement procedures and limits. The bill reauthorizes the Price-Anderson Act, but limits liability and creates industry-wide liability in the event of a major accident. The report covers background information and hearings, summarizes the 15 amendments and each section how the bill will effect relevant changes in the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Dissenting views argue against setting a liability cap on nuclear waste accidents because it discourages safety consciousness on the part of contractors and because there is no precedent in liability insurance for limiting liability.

    SciTech Connect

    Not Available

    1987-01-01

    The Senate report on S. 1085 suggests several amendments to the recommended bill which would make oversight of nuclear facility safety an independent board. The legislation responds to concerns that there is no justification for DOE facilities to be exempt from this kind of oversight, and that health and safety standards are as important at nuclear weapons and materials facilities as elsewhere. The report traces the emergence of the nuclear age and the different treatment of government and commercial facilities. There is evidence of a lack of concern for employee health and safety at some government installations. The report summarizes the four titles of the bill, reviews the four days of public hearings, and analyzes the bill by section. It notes changes that will result in the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, and the Department of Energy Organization Act.

    Part 4 of the hearing record covers the first session of hearings on S. 1884, S. 1981, and S. 2643, which affect reclamation projects at Elephant Butte Irrigation District, projects covered by the Small Reclamation Projects Act of 1956, the San Luis Unit of the Central Valley Project in California, and other purposes. The text of each bill is inserted in the record along with the testimony of 13 witnesses representing water agencies, environmental groups, and the Department of Interior's Bureau of Reclamation. Senators from several affected states also made statements. At issue was the need to authorize additional funds for the projects because repayment funds are not credited to the program, making it necessary to raise the authorization ceiling. Witnesses noted the merits of the small projects program in promoting conservation by securing funding on the open market and encouraging local initiative. Critics objected to the piecemeal effect of this approach.

  5. Senate examines measures to improve nuclear safety following Japan disaster

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Showstack, Randy

    2012-03-01

    One year after Japan suffered a devastating magnitude 9.0 earthquake and the resulting tsunami and nuclear disaster, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has taken a number of measures to try to ensure that nuclear plants in the United States are safe from natural hazards. At a U.S. Senate hearing on 15 March, NRC chair Gregory Jaczko announced that the commission had issued three key orders and several requests for information on 12 March that plant licensees must follow, and that NRC also plans to take additional actions. However, the commission is not moving quickly enough in some areas, such as ensuring that all plants are safe from seismic hazards, including those in areas with low seismic activity, according to Jaczko's testimony before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW) and the Subcommittee on Clean Air and Nuclear Safety. The 12 March orders require licensees to have strategies to maintain or restore core cooling, containment, and spent-fuel pool cooling capabilities "following a beyond-design-basis extreme natural event" and have a reliable indication of the water level in spent-fuel storage pools.

    PubMed

    Hierholzer, Klaus; Hierholzer, Johannes

    2003-01-01

    Leonhard Thurneysser and Hermann Senator are examples of "Forgotten Nephrologists". Leonhard Thurneysser was born in Basel, Switzerland in the 16th Century and worked for many years in Berlin. He was a goldsmith, miner, printer, astrologist and uroscopist. He traveled all over Europe. His importance stems from the physicochemical methods he introduced into uroscopy. He prosposed that urine distillates and their residues should be burnt in order to define their composition from the colour of the flame. He developed a overcomplicated system of fractionated distillations and drew more and more speculative conclusions. Hermann Senator lived in the 19th Century. Born and trained in Berlin, he became a critical and experienced nephrologist. His observations of "physiological" and "pathological" protein excretion in humans became important. Critical oberservations in the hospital, experimental testing of derived hypotheses and careful analyses of derived concepts characterize his work. He stimulated many young physicians to cooperate. Together with Munck he formulated the "Senator-Munck-Doctrine", according to which current concepts of urine formation as postulated by Bowman, Ludwig, Heidenhain et al could be and were unified in a "Filtration-Secretion-Reabsorption-Concept".

  10. Reinstatement of Medicaid abortion coverage faces tough fight in Senate. 10-year ban on federal workers' coverage ended.

    PubMed

    1993-08-24

    A summary of US legislation activity on coverage of abortion in public settings is provided for the last period of fiscal 1993, which ends September 39. Abortion proponents have prevailed in 3 separate measures. In July, the Senate approved the public funding of abortion in the District of Columbia by a vote of 70 to 29, which means the city can use Medicaid funds to cover abortions. The House version was approved in June. In another action in July, the Senate approved use of federal prison funds for abortions for female inmates by a vote of 87 to 113. This provision was included in a fiscal 1994 appropriations bill for the Departments of Commerce, Justice, State, and the Judiciary. The House version was adopted on July 20 by a vote of 327 to 98. The ban against abortions, except when a woman's life was endangered or in the case of rape, had been in effect for the past 7 years. There was very little debate on these issues. A highly debated issue was on an amendment to the Senate appropriations bill for Treasury and the Postal Service, which would retain the ban since 1983 on abortion coverage for federal employees. The amendment was proposed on the Senate floor by Senator Don Nickles of Oklahoma. The Appropriations Committee had previously stripped this language from the bill and had tabled the debate. The Senate amendment was killed by a strategy devised by 5 Democratic women senators: Barbara Mikulski of Maryland, Diane Feinstein of California, Patty Murray of Washington, Barbara Boxer of California, and Carol Moseley-Braun of Illinois.

  11. Geothermal Steam Act Amendments of 1987. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Mineral Resources Development and Production of the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, United States Senate, One Hundredth Congress, First Session on S. 1006, July 14, 1987

    The US Geological Survey estimates that it has identified recoverable geothermal energy which could be readily used to generate electricity in about 440 quadrillion BTUs, equivalent to about 40 billion barrels of oil. However, there are concerns regarding the impact of geothermal development and significant geothermal features with national parks and monuments. As important as geothermal energy is, we cannot allow it to be developed at the expense of nationally significant features, such as Old Faithful, the geyser basin in Yellowstone National Park. In accordance with Public Law No. 99-591, DOI issues a list of significant thermal features within national parks to be protected against adverse impacts of geothermal leasing. Witnesses here testified as to the adequacy of the list as well as to concerns that geothermal development on private lands may be affecting thermal features within the parks. Witnesses included officials from geothermal development companies, resource companies with geothermal interests, National Parks and Conservation Ass'n., Department of Interior, and US Senators and Congressmen. Appendices include (1) responses to additional committee questions, and (2) additional material submitted for the record.

  12. Coal-to-liquids bill introduced in the Senate

    SciTech Connect

    Buchsbaum, L.

    2006-06-15

    Of immense importance to the coal industry is the announcement, on 7 June 2006 by US Senators Barack Obama (D-IL) and Jim Bunning (R-KY) of S.3325, the 'Coal-to-Liquid Fund Promotion Act of 2006'. This legislation creates tax incentives for coal-to-liquids (CTL) technologies and construction of CTL plants. If passed, this will create the infrastructure needed to make CTL a viable energy resource throughout America. The article gives comment and background to this proposed legislation. Illinois Basin coal is well suited for CTL because of its high Btu content. If Sasol constructs a proposed plant in Illinois it would increase coal production in the state by 10 mt. 1 fig.

    The U.S. Senate's October 14 vote against the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) came in the wake of the October 12 military coup in Pakistan—the first-ever coup in a nuclear state. Shortly beforehand, representatives from 92 nations attending an October 6-8 conference in Vienna, Austria, had urged laggards to speed their ratification of the CTBT On October 6, AGU and the Seismological Society of America (SSA) issued a joint position statement expressing confidence that the combined worldwide nuclear test monitoring resources, when implemented, would meet the verification goals of the CTBT.In the aftermath of the Senate vote, politicians and analysts are examining the potential fallout from that action, including the international reaction, the possibility of achieving the accord's goal of halting the proliferation and testing of nuclear weapons, and the future of the treaty itself.

  14. Implementation of Texas Senate Bill 19 to increase physical activity in elementary schools.

    2009-01-01

    In 2001, the 77th Texas legislature passed Senate Bill 19 requiring students in publicly funded elementary schools to participate in physical activity and schools to implement a coordinated school health program by September 1, 2007. We report on awareness of and adherence to Senate Bill 19 in a statewide sample of elementary schools and a subsample in two public health regions located along the Texas-Mexico border. Statewide, structured interviews with principals indicated high awareness of Senate Bill 19's requirements, but lower awareness of the need for parental involvement. Only 43% of Texas schools had adopted their coordinated program 1 year or less before the implementation deadline. Principals reported an average of 179 min of physical education per week, higher than the 135-min mandate. Among the subsample border schools, principals' physical activity reports were consistent with teacher records and student reports. Further, direct observation of physical education indicated that 50% of class time was spent in moderate and vigorous physical activity, meeting the level of physical activity intensity recommended by Healthy People 2010. The differences observed by public health regions included: more physical activity minutes in Region 10 (231 min compared to 217 min in Region 11); higher adoption of coordinated school health programs (92% compared to 75%); more district-level school health advisory committees (58% compared to 38%) and school-level school health advisory committees (83% compared to 25%); and a lower prevalence of obesity in 4th grade students (21% compared to 32%). Differences by region suggest that Senate Bill 19 is not being adhered to equally across the state, and some regions may require further support to increase implementation. Results underscore the importance of continued monitoring of enacted legislation, and that legislation for child health that focuses on school programs and policies requires funding and refinement to produce
