Of all the congressional committees, this Committee has the broadest oversight of U.S. science and technology and I especially appreciate this opportunity to share my views with you on the Federal budget for R and D and related policy issues. On June 17, 1975, I appeared before this Committee in support of H.R. 4461 in hearings which lead to the passage of the National Science and Technology, Policy, and Priorities Act of 1976. During that hearing, I stressed the importance of a better system for examining national priorities in research and development and a better system for assessing such needs for both specific programs and the overall levels of Federal and private support for research and development.
