A continued rise in travel of U.S. citizens abroad is anticipated in 1966 as reflected in the following annual number of passports applied for in the United States:

1 Reimbursements from non-Federal sources above are primarily for sale of buildings pursuant to authority granted in sec. 9 of the Foreign Service Buildings Act of 1926, as amended (22 U.S.C. 292-300).

The foreign buildings program provides consolidated office space for the Foreign Service and other Government agencies abroad, and living quarters for American employees. This program also finances real property leases of 10 years or more (shorter term leases are included in Salaries and expenses, above), procurement of initial furniture and furnishings, and repair, maintenance, and operating costs of these facilities.

The following table shows present and estimated. property holdings by type of structure and geographic area (dollars in thousands):

[merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][merged small]

Outmoded or otherwise unsatisfactory Governmentowned or leased office space is replaced with structures designed specifically to meet the particular needs of the Foreign Service and other Government civilian operations overseas. Housing is provided American employees in localities where suitable housing is otherwise unavailable.

Appropriations are made pursuant to periodic congressional authorizations. In 1961, the remainder of the authority enacted in 1952 was only $10.7 million, which was required almost entirely for operating expenses. In 1962 and 1963, interim authorizations of $10 million each year similarly provided only for operating expenses, so that the acquisition and construction of facilities during the three years 1961-1963 was not significant.

However, the program was able to approach its earlier level of activity when Public Law 88-94, approved August 12, 1963, authorized $26.3 million for capital projects. The 1966 appropriation is expected to exhaust this authority and the acquisition and construction of additional facilities will depend on a further extension of the Foreign Service Buildings Act, which will be requested of the 89th Congress.

which provided for the purchase of excess foreign currencies generated from sales abroad of U.S. surplus agricultural commodities. These currencies supplement the regular building fund and are used principally to acquire capital assets in the form of real property, thereby 1,178 accelerating the building program. Countries in which these currencies will be available to the program in 1966 are Brazil, Burma, India, Israel, Nepal (through use of Indian rupees), Pakistan, Poland, United Arab Republic, and Yugoslavia. These funds will be credited to and expended under the regular appropriation.
