Mr. GINN. The subcommittee will please come to order.

Several of our other members will be dropping in and out. I think every committee on the Hill is meeting this morning. We are delighted to have a member of the full Appropriations Committee sitting in with us this morning, my colleague from the great state of Nebraska, Virginia Smith. Virginia has a very special interest in the future of the MX program, and we welcome your presence here this morning.

Today the committee will review the President's revised program for the near-term basing of our land-based intercontinental ballistic missile system. The Air Force has requested a total of $236 million in fiscal year 1983 to fund testing, training, operational, maintenance, and repair facilities in five locations as well as planning and design.

The $236 million MX request is the single largest construction program proposed in fiscal year 1983. Yet it appears that the program before us is without site designations, design, fully developed cost estimates, and full program coordination.
