AEC OMNIBUS LEGISLATION-1967

FRIDAY, AUGUST 11, 1967

SUBCOMMITTEE ON COMMUNITIES,
JOINT COMMITTEE ON ATOMIC ENERGY,

Los Alamos, N. Mex. The Subcommittee on Communities met, pursuant to call, at 9:20 a.m., in the Civic Auditorium, Los Alamos, N. Mex., Representative Thomas G. Morris (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.

Present: Senator Wallace F. Bennett; Representatives Thomas G. Morris and Craig Hosmer.

Also present : Leonard M. Trosten, staff counsel, Joint Committee on Atomic Energy.

Representative Morris. The subcommittee will be in order. Today's hearing before the subcommittee concerns identical bills (S. 1023 and H.R. 9199) which Senator Anderson and I introduced in April to authorize the AEC to make certain changes in the procedures for sale of multifamily housing units at Los Alamos.

By way of background it appeared to me last fall that the program for sale of multifamily properties was in real trouble. Serious complaints were being raised by Los Alamos residents against the policies and procedures being followed. As a result, Senator Anderson and I suggested that the Atomic Energy Commission appoint a special committee, including representatives from Los Alamos, to review the overall apartment situation in the community before proceeding further

This suggestion was followed, and the study committee was appointed and went to work. It performed a creditable job, in my opinion, by analyzing the problems which had arisen in the sale of the multifamily units. In the course of its review, the committee held a public meeting in Los Alamos in January. In April, the study committee filed a written report proposing a nine-point program which was designed to afford a more equitable basis for going forward with these sales. (See app. 3, p. 151.).

After receiving and reviewing the study committee's report, it appeared to me that a workable program had been proposed. Accordinglv, H.R. 9199 and S. 169% were introduced. (See app. 1, p. 149.) I believe this proposed legislation, if enacted, would permit the study committee's recommendations to be implemented.

I Stall furnish the following legislative summary for the record at this time, concerning the intent of this bill. I have tried to put it in Jay terms instead of legal terms.

with the sales program.

SUMMARY OF LEGISLATION

First: The AEC would be authorized to establish a revised system of priorities for purchase of the multifamily units by occupants, project-connected persons and residents of Los Alamos. This system would permit priority purchase by cooperatives, and by others as well.

Second: A first priority right would go to the person or organization which had received an assignment of the priority interests of at least 70 percent of the occupants of the building in question.

Third: If no one qualified for the first priority, a second priority would go to the organization whose members agreed to occupy at least 70 percent of the units of the building in question.

Fourth: If there is a sale to a priority purchaser, those occupants not desiring to participate in the priority purchase could obtain a 15month lease. This is to permit people who do not wish to participate in the purchase reasonable time to make a permanent arrangement with the purchasers or to move to other homes.

Fifth: If no one qualified for a first or second priority, the property would be sold to the high bidder.

While this summary of the legislation may not be precise from a legal standpoint, it fairly well, in my opinion, describes the fundamental principles of these bills.

Of course, the report of the special committee does not necessarily represent the perfect solution to the problems at hand. Moreover, this proposed legislation leaves considerable discretion in the hands of the AEC. That is why we are having this public hearing today before this subcommittee. We want to obtain firsthand the opinions of those who are familiar with, and will be affected by, these bills. Everyone who has an interest in this problem has been afforded an opportunity to make his views known to the subcommittee.

It goes without saying that the subcommittee, and the entire Joint Committee on Atomic Energy, regard the laboratory here at Los Alamos as vital to our national security. We accordingly have a powerful interest in the future of this community, and the effect of disposal actions on the work of this key defense installation.

It is a great personal pleasure for me to be here with you again. I would now like to take this opportunity to introduce to those of you who are here the members of the Joint Committee who have come so far to help us in the problem which confronts us.

First, I would like to introduce to you the senior Senator from the State of Utah, who is a member of the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy. He is a fine American, a distinguished Senator, and one whom I am proud to say is a personal friend, and even prouder to say that he is a "working”Senator– Wallace Bennett of Utah.

Senator Bennett, would you care to make any remarks at this time?

Senator BENNETT. Mr. Chairman, when the arrangements for this hearing were being made, I was very anxious to be included in the group. I was here in 1959 at a similar hearing and I became very interested in the problems of this community.

I have a particular interest in this hearing because I am the ranking minority member on the Senate Committee on Banking and Currency which handles problems involving FHA housing. In fact, I am a fugitive from a committee meeting this morning which is considering this
