Samuel Bodman, Secretary of Energy

Good afternoon. It’s always a pleasure to participate in “Ask the White House.” Yesterday, President Bush visited Novozymes, a company in North Carolina that is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of enzymes--a critical component in developing cost-effective biofuels. Today, I joined the President to view some of the latest technologies in alternative fuel vehicles, which were on display on the White House lawn.

Michael Leavitt, Secretary of Health and Human Services

I'm pleased to be answering questions about the ways this Administration is working to provide all Americans with access to a basic health insurance policy at an affordable rate. In his State of the Union, President Bush outlined his vision and I traveled with him to Chattanooga, Tennessee earlier today to discuss his plan.

Dirk Kempthorne, Secretary of the Interior

Good afternoon. I am pleased to be here today on Ask the White House to discuss the President’s National Park Centennial Initiative. Last summer, the President announced a 10-year effort to enhance our parks called the National Park Centennial Initiative. He instructed me to identify signature projects and establish performance goals for the next decade that, when achieved, will ensure our parks continue to be places where children and families can learn about our nation’s great history, enjoy quality time together and have fun outdoors.

Stephen L. Johnson, Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Good afternoon, everyone. It is a pleasure to join you once again on this forum to discuss America's environmental progress.

February 6, 2007
Stephen S. McMillin, Deputy Director, Office of Management and Budget

Thank you for taking the time to join me today. The country has a lot to be proud of – our economy is strong and growing, and as a result, federal revenues continue to be robust.
