HISTORY OF NUMBER OF CLERK HIRE EMPLOYEES
Mr. BENJAMIN. Mr. Conte?
Mr. CONTE. Yes, Mr. Chairman.

I had asked for that table and I guess this would be the place to get it. I looked at pages 55 and 56, and you have the amount of money appropriated from 1971 to 1980. Could you put in a comparable table showing total number employed for that period of time? Mr. COLLEY. In the ten-year period? Yes. Mr. HENSHAW. Yes, sir. Mr. CONTE. Thank you.

Mr. BENJAMIN. Other questions?

CONTINGENT EXPENSES OF THE HOUSE-ALLOWANCES AND

EXPENSES Mr. HENSHAW. Mr. Chairman, we will now present for the subcommittee's consideration estimates for a group of Treasury accounts and line items commonly referred to as the Contingent Fund of the House.

The estimate for fiscal year 1980 is $62,376,700. In addition to funds for the Members' Official Expenses Allowances, this estimate includes amounts for House supplies, furniture, furnishings, stenographic costs for committees, reimbursements to the Civil Service Retirement Fund for reemployed annuitants, Government contributions for employees' benefits and certain miscellaneous items.

The next page of my testimony graphically depicts the various categories of allowances and expenses, which is on page 37.
