PREPARED STATEMENTS SUBMITTED FOR THE RECORD

JULY 23, 2002

STATEMENT ON THE HONORABLE DUNCAN HUNTER
BEFORE THE SPECIAL OVERSIGHT PANEL ON THE

MERCHANT MARINE
HOUSE ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE

JULY 23, 2002

This Hearing will come to order.

My opening remarks will be brief. This is the second in a series of

hearings, which the panel will hold on the reauthorization of the Maritime

Security Program. Last week we heard from witnesses representing the ship

owners, maritime labor, and the so-called “section 2” citizens. If we learned

anything last week, we have a very difficult task ahead of us.

This week we will receive testimony from the shipbuilding

components within this industry. Judging from a review of their testimony,

we will have a replay of last week's hearing. I am particularly interested in

getting the best cost estimates of each of the disparate proposals that will be

presented today.

I also noticed that several of the witnesses today have made comments on

needed changes to the tax laws. I hope to hear more on these topics today.
