OPENING STATEMENT OF HON. BOB SMITH, U.S. SENATOR FROM THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE Senator SMITH. The hearing will come to order. Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Good morning, Mr. McCabe and Mr. Eberhard.
The purpose of the hearing this morning is to consider the two nominations here in question. I apologize for the delay, but we did have a vote on the Senate Floor on Alan Greenspan.
As the new Chairman of the committee, I plan to hold a series of oversight hearings on the EPA budget, the prioritization of resources, and overall performance, so I will be looking forward to working with you gentlemen in that regard. We do have some questions—some for the record, and some may be here in person and I hope we will be able to get those answers resolved here this morning.
From my own point of view, I think both of these gentlemen are very well qualified for their positions. I haven't heard of any registered opposition at this point, so I welcome you both today. [The prepared statement of Senator Smith follows:] STATEMENT OF HON. BOB SMITH, U.S. SENATOR FROM THE STATE OF NEW

My colleagues and I have a number of questions for Mr. McCabe today on EPArelated concerns that I hope he will be able to answer for us.
The second nomination is that of Eric D. Eberhard nominated to serve as a Member of the Board of Trustees for the Morris K. Udall Scholarship and Excellence in National Environmental Policy Foundation.
