    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. The witnesses also included representatives of environmental groups, geologists, and the oil and gas industry. An appendix with additional correspondence, statements, and other material submitted for the record follows the testimony of the 13 witnesses.

    Objective Clinician engagement correlates with quality, safety and efficacy outcomes. The aim of the present study was to explore whether a clinical senate model achieves clinical input into system manager and operational health service boards.Methods A mixed-methods survey was undertaken. Participants were current or immediate past members of the Clinical Senate of Western Australia (CS). For the 124 surveys sent out, the response rate was 60%.Results Respondents stated the CS played a role in clinician engagement (95%), contributed to healthcare reform (82%), knowledge of contemporary health issues (92%), feedback to decision makers (82%), clinician networking (94%), debate on important issues (93%), enabled clinicians to work on recommendations to improve health at a state level (87%), contributed to clinician thinking on health reform (88%) and enabled clinicians to share their knowledge (91%). Four major themes emerged in the qualitative analysis: (1) the need for a strong independent clinician forum and voice at a state level; (2) the need to strengthen clinician interactions with operational healthcare boards; (3) a strong belief that clinician engagement strengthened quality and safety outcomes at a state level; and (4) that membership was important and needed to be diverse, multidisciplinary and independent, but structurally representative of clinicians in the state.Conclusion A clinical senate model can facilitate state-wide clinician engagement.What is known about the topic? High levels of clinical engagement foster a culture within healthcare organisations that is associated with the delivery of sustained high-quality, safe and efficient services. This has led to a focus on strategies to optimise clinical engagement in healthcare planning and reform. However, there is limited data exploring how to achieve clinical engagement at a state, rather than local, level within the healthcare system.What does this paper add? This survey study evaluates the

    SciTech Connect

    1999-07-01

    This hearing will be on whether the US has the natural gas supply and the infrastructure necessary to meet the projected demand. Energy information says that there will be a need for 30 trillion cubic feet per year of natural gas by the year 2010 if the US is able to meet the proposed Clinton-Gore global warming targets. The question for today's hearing is can this level of gas demand be met. That is about a 50% increase. Will the gas be there both on-shore and off-shore? Will producers be given access to Federal lands? Those of us out West have had a little experience in that regard, and the Secretary of the Interior has not exactly opened up the wide-open spaces. Will there be interstate pipeline which is needed to move the gas from the producing fields to the cities? According to industry, why the FERC has not been particularly interested in allowing new gas lines to be built. Will there be local distribution facilities which will be necessary to get the gas from the pipeline to the consumers? The Committee heard from the following: representatives from the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America, Energy Information Agency, Independent Petroleum Association of America, Latin American Petroleum Intelligence Service, Natural Gas Supply Association, and Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, and senators from the states of New Mexico, Montana, and Alaska.

    1986-01-01

    The Acid Deposition Control Act of 1986 amends the Clean Air Act by adding new sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides emission controls for utilities and industrial boilers which contribute to the acid deposition problem. The bill calls upon states to identify stationary pollutant sources and to establish compliance schedules. It also provides for the imposition of fees, penalties, and civil actions pertaining to the generation and importation of electric power. An interest subsidy program protects ratepayers from bearing excessive costs of pollution control equipment. Changes in the New Source Performance Standards affect utility boilers and smelters. Title II changes emission standards for mobile sources, specifically certain trucks and diesel fuels. Title II calls for cooperation from Canada and Mexico in protecting the border environment.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  1. 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

    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.

    The controversial National Energy Security Act of 1992 (S2166) was approved by the Senate in a 94-4 vote on February 19 after a circuitous route through the chamber. The original energy bill, SI220, was introduced last summer and was blocked from coming to the Senate floor by a filibuster. The new bill is considerably different from the original energy bill.The sponsor of the bill, S. Bennett Johnston (D-La.), and cosponsor Malcolm Wallop (R-Wyo.) agreed to abandon certain controversial components in order to keep the bill moving. The main program dropped is the proposal to open parts of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to oil and gas drilling. Environmentalists were opposed to the drilling and were able to block the entire bill last fall, so Johnston agreed to abandon the provision.

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    The Senate Defense Appropriations Sub-committee, chaired by Sen. Daniel K. Inouye (D-Hawaii), has deleted $47.5 million in funding that was appropriated for construction of the AGOR 25, a state-of-the art ship on which oceanographers were to carry out first-rate science, including global change research. The ship was to be built with U.S. Navy funds and operated within the U.S. academic fleet by a UNOLS institution. The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) was awarded the operations contract for the AGOR 25 in July 1991. The Senate passed the funding bill on October 21, and it will go to conference within the next 2 weeks.

    2009-11-01

    AGU and 17 other scientific organizations sent an open letter to the U.S. Senate on 21 October reminding senators of the scientific consensus on anthropogenic climate change. The letter was sent 1 week before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works began a series of hearings on climate change legislation, the Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act (Senate bill 1733). The letter states, “Observations throughout the world make it clear that climate change is occurring, and rigorous scientific research demonstrates that the greenhouse gases emitted by human activities are the primary driver. These conclusions are based on multiple independent lines of evidence, and contrary assertions are inconsistent with an objective assessment of the vast body of peer-reviewed science.”

    There is a need to encourage greater recycling of scrap tires. Americans generate more than 250 million scrap tires annually, of which less than 30% are recycled. Every year, 84.5% of these scrap tires are landfilled, stockpiled, or illegally dumped. This bill was introduced into the Senate of the United States on Feb. 7, 1991 to amend the Solid Waste Disposal Act. One purpose of this legislation is to require producers and importers of tires to recycle a certain percentage of scrap tires each year. In addition, the administrator of the EPA is required to establish a recycling credit system for carrying out these recycling requirement, and to establish a management and tracking system for such tires.
