REORGANIZATION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
SUBCOMMITTEE ON INVESTIGATIONS,
Washington, DC, Wednesday, February 19, 1986. The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 9:35 a.m., in room 2337, Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. Bill Nichols (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.
OPENING STATEMENT OF HON. BILL NICHOLS, A REPRESENTA
TIVE FROM ALABAMA, CHAIRMAN, INVESTIGATIONS SUBCOMMITTEE
Mr. NICHOLS. Over the last 40 years there has been a no more consistently troubling question than the organization of our national defense establishment.
The National Security Act of 1947, as well as its amendments in 1949 and 1958, provided us with a framework that has endured over that period. But that framework has been the target of continuous criticism, suggesting that we could and should do better.
Over the years at least a dozen Presidential commissions or special panels, as well as an untold number of academic studies, have left an impressive documentary record of the need to improve. In this decade the changing international security environment, particularly characterized by the demonstration of a new order of Soviet military capabilities, gave additional urgency to this question.
In 1982 two of this country's most distinguished military leaders, Gen. David C. Jones, Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Gen. Edward C. Meyer, Chief of Staff, U.S. Army, took the lead in urging that the JCS system be strengthened by a number of comprehensive reforms. We in the Congress took particular note of their recommendations. I'm especially proud of the record of this House in holding comprehensive hearings on JCS reform and in moving aggressively to recommend legislation.
Last November, the House passed a JCS reform measure, H.R. 3622, by vote of 383 to 27. We sent it to the Senate. Two of our distinguished colleagues in the other body, Senator Barry Goldwater, and Senator Sam Nunn of Georgia have not only moved to examine the issue of JCS reform, but have broadened their investigations to embrace the larger question of Department of Defense organization.
