Hearing adjourned. @CongMikeSimpson asked about the cost of replacing MOX, @SecretaryPerry dodged. No one asked about low-yield submarine warheads from the Nuclear Posture Review, but @LGHNNSA will face the subcommittee Tuesday for Qs. Thanks for following.
This is the discussion @FrankGKlotz teed up just before he retired earlier this year. So if your out of the loop, this is Kaptur picking up a thread, not creating a new conversation ex nihilo.
In the 2nd round of questioning (just started) @RepMarcyKaptur says she wants the subcommittee to get briefed on how the Nuclear Posture Review will stress the @NNSANews as it works at factory capacity on four warhead life-extension programs (which cost ≈$1.3B in FY18 alone).
The hearing is still going on. There will be a second round of questioning. I'll let you know. No discussion so far of low-yield warheads or plutonium pits.
.@SecretaryPerry now promises he will take "appropriate actions" to respond to @ENERGY's failure to deliver a full budget request to Congress by now. Notably, @ENERGY EM's budget is still outstanding (something that has happened in prior years).
