SUBCOMMITTEE PRINT FORMAT Mr. BENJAMIN. A second question deals with the fact that you are trying to produce a single source of budget language, and of course in 1977 and 1978 we had similar testimony. Are we finally at the single source as you would visualize it?

Mr. HENSHAW. Very close to it, yes, sir. We have made every effort.

John, do you see where we can maybe make other improve ments?

Mr. LAWLER. The only difference between the testimony, Mr. Chairman, that is referred to here in the black notebooks as we are reading through, and the document referred to as the Subcommittee Print is that the Subcommittee Print contains more historical information and legislative reference. The day-to-day testimony that is presented here represents programs that are being discussed for just the current year. Short of that, spending histories, level of expenditures, this type of information, that you find necessary is contained in the Subcommittee Print. That is why we are saying that it is your primary reference point.

Mr. BENJAMIN. Can we anticipate any follow-up changes, or is this it?

Mr. LAWLER. The only other change that could be integrated into the Subcommittee Print would be the latest spending changes that we do prepare for the day-to-day testimony, but of course at the
