Title: Energy issues in the President's budget for Fiscal Year 1977. Hearing before the Task Force on Physical Resources of the Committee on the Budget, House of Representatives, Ninety-Fourth Congress, Second Session, March 5, 1976

Abstract

The task force met, Rep. Jim Wright, presiding, to discuss the energy proposals contained in President Ford's 1977 budget. The presiding officer felt that a need existed to know what was going to be the budget impact of the proposals related to the Energy Independence Authority dealing with synthetic fuels, uranium enrichment, increased funding for energy R and D, and what budgetary impact is expected from tax cuts to electric utilities; also the question needed investigating regarding the extent to which funding is or is not included in the budget for the recently signed Energy Policy and Conservation Act. Eric R. Zausner, FEA, and other FEA staff members discussed the following: strategic petroleum reserves, Naval petroleum reserves, Naval petroleum reserves/strategic petroleum storage, early storage reserve plan, the Energy Independence Authority, and electric utility tax relief proposals. The prepared statement of Mr. Zausner follows. Dr. Robert C. Seamans, ERDA, then chaired a discussion on the proposed ERDA budget, accompanied by his associates. The prepared statement of Dr. Seamans is included and contains budgetary information concerning research and development, conservation, fossil energy, solar energy, geothermal energy, fusion and fission power, nuclear fuel cycle, space technology, uranium enrichment, and national security programs.
