A Department of Science and Technology: A Recurring Theme

A Department of Science and Technology: A Recurring Theme

Date: February 3, 1995
Creator: Boesman, William C
Description: Consolidation of many Federal research and development (R&D) activities into a Department of Science and Technology (S&T) has been proposed repeatedly since World War D, including in the last Congress. The trend, however, has been toward the creation of mission agencies with supporting R&D capabilities. Analyses of arguments for and against consolidation indicate that valid reasons exist on both sides of the issue. Specific consolidation proposals may be considered again during the 104th Congress.

Department of Energy Abolition? Implications for the Nuclear Weapons Program

Date: September 29, 1995
Creator: Medalia, Jonathan
Description: This report considers how abolition might affect the U.S. nuclear weapons program. It provides background on the weapons program and the debate on what organization should control it; summarizes the debate over managing the program, including criticisms of DOE’s management and issues in deciding where to place the program, and presents four options for the weapons program. It considers pros and cons for each option. This report should be of value for understanding consequences of alternative organizational “homes” for the weapons program for those considering legislation to abolish DOE.

"Orderly Closure" of the Bureau of Mines: FY 1996 Funding

"Orderly Closure" of the Bureau of Mines: FY 1996 Funding

Date: January 31, 1996
Creator: Thompson, Duane A
Description: The Congress and the White House have agreed to abolish the Bureau of Mines within the Department of the Interior (DOI). H.R. 1977, appropriating funds for the DOI, would have provided $64 million for the "orderly closure" of the Bureau of Mines within 90 days of enactment. Orderly closure entails relocating certain functions to other agencies and completely eliminating others. H.R. 1977 was vetoed for unrelated reasons, but an attempt to override that veto was unsuccessful. In its latest action, January 26, 1996, Congress passed a continuing resolution (P.L. 104-99) affirming the closure of the Bureau and the transfer of some functions to other agencies
