Mr. Traficant. I now recognize the gentleman from Tennessee.

Mr. Duncan. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I will simply say that
I look forward to hearing the witnesses today. I am pleased to wel-
come our fellow Members, Mr. Hayes and Mr. Jefferson. Also I am
pleased to welcome the Deputy Administrator of GSA, Julia Stasch,
to testify about the review process. This is something that I think
was a good idea and I welcome and support efforts to try to save
money and reduce the costs on some of these Federal Courthouse
buildings and other buildings under GSA's purview. I look forward
to hearing her testimony.

I certainly want to commend you, Mr. Chairman, for the leader-
ship you are providing in calling this hearing this morning. I will
have further remarks later.

Thank you very much.

Mr. Traficant. Our first witness today is the distinguished Rep-
resentative from Louisiana, Congressman James A. Hayes, who
will testify on H.R. 3356, a bill to designate the United States
Courthouse under construction at 611 Broad Street in Lake
Charles, Louisiana, as the "Edwin Ford Hunter, Jr. United States
Courthouse."

I would like to take this opportunity to clarify that although H.R.
3356 would name a GSA building that is leased, not owned, GSA
has an express understanding with the lessor that the naming is
acceptable; and that, further, this understanding will be reduced to
a supplemental agreement between GSA and the lessor and made
part of their lease prior to the enactment of this legislation.

I ask unanimous consent to enter into the record the documents
I have just referred to. Without objection, so ordered.

Mr. Traficant. I support approval of this move and this remedy
that has been worked out relative to the leased building. I have
known Representative Hayes since he came to the Congress; he is
now Chairman of the Science, Space, and Technology Committee,
and I would like to welcome him here and yield to him such time
as he may need.

TESTIMONY OF HON. JAMES A. HAYES, A REPRESENTATIVE IN
CONGRESS FROM LOUISIANA

Mr. Hayes. Mr. Chairman, thank you. I won't take but a moment
of your time; I know you have a busy schedule with witnesses on
matters of importance to both your subcommittee, the committee,
and to the Congress. I will simply ask your permission to insert
into the record some of the items which you have mentioned, the
original agreement with the lessor for the renaming of the building,
along with some of the individual distinctions, a resume on Judge
Hunter, and I would like that my statement be made a part of the
record.

The only thing that I would like to add to that, in appreciation
of the conservation of your time, is that this morning we have the
distinction of having two buildings in the State of Louisiana, both
of them to be named after Federal judges. At the time that I was
going to school in the 1960s, in college in Louisiana, it was my de-
sire that at a later time in life to be able to talk about the role that
Federal judges played in my area and in parts of the South in
bringing about integration, and in creating such an individual
"unpopularity" on some occasions in their local communities for a
social change brought about. Both of the judges for whom we are
seeking to name buildings today fall in that category, and interest-
ingly enough, over the passage of time both of them have now not
only become most revered in their communities, but their individ-
ual character and courage during the 1950s and 1960s is always
spotlighted as among the most distinguished features of their judi-
cial careers.

With that addendum to the comments here, I very much would
be happy to answer any questions, but would simply appreciate the
insertion into the record and would say that for only the second
time in seven years I have come to this subcommittee asking for
the naming of a building. I appreciate your consideration and your
support. Thank you very much.

STATEMENT OF
CONGRESSMAN JIMMY HAYES

TO THE

SUBCOMMITTEE ON PUBLIC BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS

COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC WORKS AND TRANSPORTATION

U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

November 4, 1993



I want to express my great thanks to the Subcommittee and
Chairman Traficant for holding this markup of H.R. 3356, a bill to
designate the U.S. Courthouse under construction in Lake Charles,
Louisiana, as the "Edwin F. Hunter, Jr. United States Courthouse."

Judge Hunter has enjoyed a long and exemplary career on the
bench, starting with his appointment by President Eisenhower.
Naming this courthouse in his honor is a proper tribute for all he
has given to the Lake Charles community.

Judge Hunter was named as a Federal Judge in 1954 after more
than a decade of private practice. He has served as a State
Representative in the Louisiana Legislature, the State Chairman of
the American Bar Association, Commander of the Lowe-McFarlane
American Legion Post, and is a decorated Naval Officer who served
in World War II. Judge Hunter currently handles 25 percent of the
Lake Charles Docket and all Lake Charles Dispositive motions, in
addition to Lafayette and Shreveport cases.

The courthouse naming in honor of Judge Hunter has the wide
support of the entire Lake Charles and Louisiana public. I also
have additional background information for inclusion in the record.
Again, I greatly appreciate the Committee's work on this bill, and
stand ready to assist in any way necessary to promote its passage.
