The Subcommittee will come to order. The Sub committee meets today to continue oversight on improving lease management of Federal oil and gas resources. To date this Con gress, the Subcommittee has held two hearings on the Clinton Ad ministration's Reinvent Government II, or otherwise known as rego II, proposals concerning mms offshore and royalty manage ment programs, oversight and legislative hearings on hr. 1975, a bill to improve the efficiencies of royalty collections, and two hear ings on domestic energy policy related to increasing domestic pro duction and creating jobs. Today's hearings will investigate the Department of Interior's progress on a proposal to transfer the Bureau of Land Manage ment's oil and gas inspection and enforcement functions to the States. Of course, the relatively new requirement that States bear a portion of the Federal Government's costs to administer the Min eral Leasing Act of 1920 for leases within their borders is in large measure why we are here today addressing the possible transfer of certain functions to those States which seek an alternative. Federal bureaucratic inefficiencies now cost States twice, once when royalties which may be properly owed go uncollected because the Department of Interior's Mineral Management Service has other priorities - or as I have said before, Spending dollars to chase dimes - and, secondly, when the elm, Forest Service, and mms costs to run the leasing program - from initial land-use planning through royalty collections - are forced upon States without a means for control of those costs. Except, perhaps, in a cumulative fashion only through the Inte rior Department appropriations bill which we struggle with each year. Unfortunately, that doesn't provide sufficient detail necessary to rein in Federal agency costs on a State - by-state basis.
