$491,100,000 GENERAL STATEMENT
"This appropriation provides for the basic real property operations o General Services Administration, including acquisition, operation, maintenance, protection, and utilization of general-purpose buildings and space; for overall direction of buildings design, construction, and repair and modernization.
The total financing required for 1974 is $491, 100 thousand. This includes an appropriation request of $390,982 thousand and a proposed transfer of $100, 118 thousand from "Construction, Public Buildings Projects." This represents a net increase of $12,200 thousand above the comparable amount for 1973. The 1973 amount includes proposed transfers of $36,400 thousand for the annual cost of expansion space acquired in 1972, not provided for in GSA's 1973 budget.
The net increase of $12,200 thousand provides primarily for managemen and operation of new Federal buildings scheduled for occupancy in 1973 and 1974, new and replacement furnishings for members of Congress, and fullyear costs of wage board rate increases effected in 1973, offset by credits for space released resulting from new construction." (From The Budget for 1974.)
Application of the $12,200 thousand increase requested in 1974 is explained in detailed estimates which follow.
In accordance with administration policy, the recently granted classified pay increases are to be absorbed within total appropriations currently available to GSA for fiscal year 1973. In addition, the appropriations requested in the President's Budget for 1974 do not reflect the impact of the full-year cost of these increases.
For necessary expenses, not otherwise provided for, of real property management and related activities as provided by law; rental of buildings in the District of Columbia; restoration of leased premises; moving Government agencies (including space ad justments) in connection with the assignment, allocation, and transfer of building space; acquisition by purchase or otherwise of real estate and interests therein; and contractual services incident to cleaning or servicing buildings and moving; _$437,500,000/ $491.100.000. of which $100, 118,000 shall be derived by transfer from the appropriation made in the Independent Agencies Appropriation Act, 1973

EXPLANATION OF PROPOSED CHANGES IN APPROPRIATION LANGUAGE
The first change in the language provides that of the total amount of $491,100,000 requested for 1974, $100, 118,000 is proposed to be derived by transfer from the umobligated balance of the appropriation made in the Independent Agencies Appropriation Act, 1973 for Construction, Public Buildings Projects.
The second provisu authorizing powers of special policemen to guards employed by GSA and the Postal Service has been deleted from the language for this item. A similar proviso has been proposed for insertion in the overall general provisions for the Treasury, Postal Service, and General Government Appropriation Act for 1974 inasmuch as the appropriations for the Postal Service and GSA are included in separate tit les of the Act.
