LEGISLATIVE BRANCH APPROPRIATIONS FOR

FISCAL YEAR 1982

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1981. Mr. Fazio. The Committee will come to order. This morning we are going to begin the hearings of the Legislative Branch Subcommittee for Fiscal Year 1982's budget. This is my first term as the Chairman of the Subcommittee and I am going to be aided by several veteran colleagues on the majority side and some relatively fresh faces mixed in with some veterans on the Republican side.

The budget we are going to consider as a committee totals almost $1.2 billion excluding Senate items of almost $250,000,000 for a total budget of close to $1.5 billion dollars. Including Senate items, the 1982 Fiscal Year budget is an increase of $230,000,000 or 19 percent over the $1.2 billion already enacted for 1981 and when the pending supplementals for 1981 are included the increase is about $110 million or eight percent over Fiscal Year 1981.

As most of you know only a portion of this budget is for Congressional operations, about $922 million which is $131 million or a 16.5 percent increase over last year's $791 million enacted for Congressional operations in Fiscal Year 1981.

If you include the supplementals the increase is only $35 million or a four percent increase.

The balance of the funds support statutory and administrative responsibilities of the Executive Branch and the public in a variety of agencies including the Library of Congress, Copyright Royalty Tribunal, Botanic Garden, Government Printing Office, General Accounting Office, and the Railroad Accounting Principles Board. We will also be looking at the Fiscal Year 1981 supplemental requests of a little over $100 million, $45 million for cost of living pay increases authorized last October by the President and another $60 million request for additional supplemental items of a program nature.
