An estimated 17,000 copies will be required in fiscal year 1980 and the cost will be approximately $12.6 million.

B. Miscellaneous publications. This item includes printed matter such as the Congressional Directory, Senate and House Journals, memorial addresses of Members, nominations, United States Code and supplements, and publications not carrying a document or report number, such as laws, treaties, and similar publications. An estimated $470,000 will be required in fiscal year 1980 for copies distributed by law to recipients other than Congress.

C. Publications for International Exchange and the Library of Congress.-As provided by law (44 U.S.C. 1718 and 1719), certain publications are provided for official use in international exchange and for the Library of Congress. An estimated $1.6 million will be needed for about 2.4 million copies in fiscal year 1980.

D. House and Senate business calendars.—This heading covers the printing of all House and Senate business calendars which list the actions on pending and completed legislation.

F. Committee reports.—This item covers printed reports of congressional committees on pending legislation which carry a congressional number. An estimated $41,000 will be needed in fiscal year 1980 for 135 sets distributed by law to recipients other than Congress.

G. Documents. This heading includes all classes of Senate and House documents ordered printed by Congress which carry a congressional number, such as annual reports, engineers' reports, special reports made by Government departments in response to resolutions, supplemental and deficiency estimates of appropriations, etc. The

estimate for fiscal year 1980 is $37,000 for 135 sets distributed by law to recipients other than Congress.

H. U.S. Government Manual, the Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States, and the Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents.—The National Archives and Records Service has been authorized (13 F.R. 5935; 1 CFR, pt. 31) to handle the U.S. Government Manual as a special edition of the Federal Register. On November 6, 1957, the National Archives and Records Service was authorized (22 F.R. 8895; 1 CFR, pt. 32) to begin printing as a special edition of the Federal Register, the Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States starting with the calendar year 1957 and specified calendar years prior to 1957 as authorized by the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register. The Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents, which began publication on August 2, 1965, is published pursuant to the authority contained in the Federal Register Act (49 Stat. 500, as amended; 44 U.S.C. ch. 15), under regulations prescribed by the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register, approved by the President (1 CFR, pt. 32). The total estimated requirements for these three publications, based on page estimates furnished by the Office of the Federal Register, is $622,000, which consists of U.S. Government Manual ($121,000) for 920 pages of approximately 8,500 copies, Public Papers of the Presidents ($120,000) for 2,600 pages of approximately 1,500 copies of two books, and Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents ($381,000) for 2,200 pages of approximately 5,600 copies.
