JUSTIFICATIONS

Chairman HAYDEN. The committee will be in order. We have a supplemental request, items under "General Government matters, Department of Commerce and related matters," in which further estimates have been submitted. Inasmuch as Senator Holland is chairman of the subcommittee that is in charge of the bill, I am going to ask him to ask the questions.

Senator HOLLAND. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The first item for consideration is a request in the amount of $1 million for "Participation in Century 21 Exposition.” The House denied the request. At this point there will be placed in the record the extract from House Document 231 of September 1 transmitting this request, the justifications in support of the amount requested, and the Department's request for amendment of the House bill to restore this item.
