NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION

STATEMENTS OF DR. T. KEITH GLENNAN, ADMINISTRATOR; DR. HUGH L. DRYDEN, DEPUTY ADMINISTRATOR; ALBERT SIEPERT, DIRECTOR, OFFICE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION; ROBERT G. NUNN, ASSISTANT GENERAL COUNSEL; AND RALPH. E. ULMER, BUDGET OFFICER

STATEMENT BY THE CHAIRMAN

Chairman HAYDEN. The committee will be in order. This morning the committee is beginning open hearings on H.R. 7978, the supplemental appropriations bill for 1960. We will begin with the largest amount requested in the bill, covering funds for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration for 1960 as well as supplemental items for 1959. Such funds would usually be considered in connection with the independent offices appropriation bill, but due to the requirement placed in last year's supplemental bill, the regular budget estimates could not be submitted until after the passage of the specific authorizations. Estimates for the 1959 supplemental items in House Document 114 were authorized by Public Law 86–12, approved April 22, 1959; and estimates for the 1960 regular items in House Document 173 were authorized by Public Law 86–45, approved June 15, 1959. The total request for the five items in the bill is $530,300,000, which the House action reduced by $68,225,000, and the Space Administration is requesting full restoration involved in 13 amendments. Dr. Glennan, I will place your letter in the record with the authorization, but I would first like to hear from Senator Johnson who is the author of this legislation. Senator Johnson. Thank you very much, Mr. Chairman. Some of the most distinguished members of the Appropriations Committee are also members of the Space Committee and participated with Senator Stennis, who served as chairman of the NASA Authorization Subcommittee, in the most thorough hearings on the authorizing legislation that have been conducted in this field.
