Excerpt from Operational Testing, Ensuring Better Weapons for Our Troops: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Federal Services, Post Office, and Civil Service of the Committee on Governmental Affairs, United States Senate, One Hundred Third Congress, Second Session; March 22, 1994
Senator pryor. Ladies and gentlemen, our meeting will come to order. We want to welcome each of our Witnesses this morning and our colleague, Senator Roth.
I have a statement that I am not going to take the time to read in its entirety. By the way, I do apologize for my lateness this morning. Another meeting was called and I had to attend it.
I would like to say that for about 10 years my colleague, Senator Roth of Delaware, and myself have been involved in promoting a concept of operational testing, testing weapons before we buy them. We call this ﬂy before you buy. I would like to also state that since we have been involved on this issue for the past 10 years - I can't speak for Senator Roth, but I will speak for myself - I have yet dur ing this decade of working on the issue of operational testing, mak ing sure that weapons work before we buy them - I have yet to have one lobbyist come into my office or to meet me in the hall to say we need to make sure that our weapons work. There has not been one.
