Energy Samuel Bodman Addresses SLAC Community
The U.S. Secretary of Energy, Samuel Bodman, visited SLAC on Thursday, August 4. Bodman spoke to an audience of about 1,000 SLAC staff and visitors on the role of the Department of Energy as the primary funder of research in the physical sciences in the Federal Government.
Thank you, President Hennessy. I’m privileged and a bit in awe at being here before you. I’ve been on this job now about six months which—as my colleagues have heard me say a few times as we visited other laboratory facilities—it’s beginning to be a little dangerous because I’m starting to think that I know what I am doing.
But the one thing we have been doing is working very hard
with our friends in the Congress to get an Energy bill passed and I’m
happy to report that I think America was the real winner last Friday
when we did in fact get an Energy bill passed.
