This hearing was the third in a series of hearings on the administration’s efforts to identify wasteful, duplicative, or excessive spending by agencies within the jurisdiction of the Energy and Commerce Committee. The subcommittee reviewed concerns reported by the DOE IG and GAO. This hearing also aimed to evaluate the results of the DOE’s spending-reduction initiatives through the proposed FY 2013 budget, as well as to assist DOE in identifying and prioritizing further targets for potential elimination or cuts for congressional consideration.
