Mr. ANDREWS. Turning to the item of $31,200,000 for Congressional Printing and Binding, which is, as I mentioned a while ago, $4.5 million above the current appropriation, we will insert the detailed sheets submitted by the Public Printer or such part of the supporting sheet as might be appropriate. The staff can work that out.
(The material follows:)
SUMMARY OF APPROPRIATION ESTIMATES FOR CONGRESSIONAL PRINTING AND
BINDING, FISCAL YEAR 1969 The estimates for congressional printing and binding are to provide funds with which to pay for the cost of printing and binding required for the use of Congress; for the printing, binding, and distribution of the Federal Register, and for printing and binding supplements to the Code of Federal Regulations.
Funds to cover the cost of the printing and binding needs of the various executive and legislative departments, independent establishments, and the judiciary are not included in this appropriation but are provided for in the appropriation acts for these branches of the Government. The Government Printing Office recovers the cost for this work through billings to these agencies.
The total amount estimated for congressional printing and binding for the fiscal year 1969 is $31,200,000; $26,400,000 is estimated to provide for printing and binding work for Congress for the fiscal year 1969 and $4,800,000 is required to reimburse the 1968 appropriation for charges incurred during prior fiscal years which are paid out of the 1968 appropriation, as authorized by law (Public Law 90–57, 90th Congress) which states that the appropriation "shall be available for the payment of obligations incurred under the appropriations for similar purposes for preceding fiscal years." This provision of law recognizes that there can be no effective means to determine in advance the volume of congressional printing which the Government Printing Office is called upon to produce.
The appropriation for fiscal year 1967 is $18,500,000 plus $3 million to cover a deficit incurred in fiscal year 1965 making a total of $21,500,000. There is still a deficit of $4,800,000 for fiscal year 1967 which is included in the total estimated requirements for fiscal year 1969 bringing the total requirements for fiscal year 1967 to $23,300,000.
The appropriation for congressional printing and binding for fiscal year 1968 is $22 million plus $4 million to cover a deficit incurred in fiscal year 1966, $600,000 to cover a deficit incurred in fiscal year 1965, and $100,000 to cover a deficit incurred in fiscal year 1964, for a total of $26,700,000. The following statement has been prepared showing:
1. Fiscal year 1967 expenditures billed through Jauary 31, 1968.
2. Estimated outstanding obligations for fiscal year 1967, as of January 31, 1968.
3. Estimated expenditures for fiscal year 1967.
7. Total estimated requirements for fiscal year 1969. The requirements under each item for fiscal year 1969 are set forth briefly in the order named. All fiscal year 1967 figures in the following items are based on work billed through January 31, 1968.
1. Congressional Record.—The proceedings of the Senate and House of Representatives are printed daily in the Congressional Record. Approximately 42,000 copies are printed daily and distributed as provided by law, and are charged to the appropriation for printing and binding for Congress. There also are printed daily about 6,100 additional copies which are delivered and charged to Government Departments on requisitions and to the Superintendent of Documents for sale to subscribers. After the close of each session, the daily proceedings are consolidated, indexed, and about 2,140 copies printed as the bound edition of the Record. In addition, about 225 sets are distributed to Departments, depository libraries, and public sales. The total cost to Congress of printing the daily edition and index of the Congressional Record in fiscal year 1967 was $3,395,063 for 37,867 pages of the daily edition and 2,298 pages of the inder. The bound edition which was ordered in the fiscal year 1967 and is still in production is estimated at $807,600. This will bring the total estimated require ments for this item to $4,202,663 for the fiscal year 1967. The estimate submitted
