OPENING REMARKS OF CHAIRMAN

Mrs. HANSEN. This morning we begin consideration of the 1971 budget estimates for the Department of the Interior and Related Agencies.

It is a joy to start another year with Mr. Reifel as the ranking minority member.

It is also a joy to have Mr. Wyatt back with us. Other members of the committee are in other hearings and will be with us later in the day.

Mr. Secretary, it is a great pleasure to have you and the distinguished members of your staff here this morning. I may say before we start that we had the privilege of having Assistant Secretary Dunn and Commissioner Meacham in my district about 3 weeks ago on the rainiest, stormiest day that could possibly be experienced. They did an excellent job representing the Department on that occasion. It was a pleasure to have them.

Secretary HICKEL. Thank you.

Mrs. HANSEN. We are sorry Under Secretary Train is not back before us today. We enjoyed working with him last year and may I say that the committee wishes him well in his new and challenging job as Chairman of the Council on Environmental Quality.
