Ralph Hall Wants It Both Ways

Ralph Hall gearing up for new role as chairman of House Science and Technology Committee, Dallas Morning News

"Hall is steeped in the legislative battles around those issues. But in a caucus full of self-styled reformers, he remains a type of throwback legislator - a guardian of home-state interests and federal programs, including NASA. "I'm satisfied with what I have," said Hall, 87, adding that he pondered running for chairman of a more prominent panel, House Energy and Commerce. "It's a good Texas launching pad to do things for Johnson Space Center."

"Our Committee will help ensure that taxpayer dollars are invested wisely in research and development programs by providing effective oversight of existing programs and by eliminating wasteful and duplicative programs and streamlining programs where needed. Republicans have been given the opportunity to help make our government function more efficiently and effectively, and we will work to achieve fiscal responsibility."
