Mr. ANDREWS. Mr. Harrison, let us get a few figures in the record.
ESTIMATED 1969 BUSINESS
Looking at the chart on page 8, the $31,200,000 appropriation requested for 1969 includes $26,400,000 for what I understand is your first effort at the cost of congressional printing and binding business that might be ordered during fiscal year 1969, is that correct?
Mr. HARRISON. That is correct, sir.
ESTIMATED 1967 DEFICIENCY Jr. ANDREWS. And $1,800,000, according to your sheet, is to cover an estimated deficiency for fiscal year 1967, is that correct?
Mr. HARRISON. That is correct.
Mr. ANDREWS. Well, I believe your statement is that there has heretofore been appropriated for 1967 business, that is, business ordered during fiscal year 1967, the sum of $18,500,000. Is that correct?
Mr. HARRISON. Yes, sir.
Mr. ANDREWS. That, then, would make a total available for 1967 business of $23,300,000 ?
Mr. HARRISON. That is right.
FISCAL YEAR 1968 BUSINESS
Mr. ANDREWS. $22 million was requested and made available in the last bill in respect to 1968 business, is that correct?
Mr. HARRISON. That is correct.
Mr. ANDREWS. Now you estimate your first estimate, or "guesstimate" we might say, for 1969 is $26,400,000. Do I deduce from these figures that your initial guess for 1968 business of $22 million is probably an understatement ?
Mr. HARRISON. Yes, sir.
Mr. ANDREWS. Do you have any idea as to how much of an understatement ?
Mr. HARRISON. Our projected need at this point is $25,388,000.
Mr. ANDREWS. Since you indicate $26,400,000 for fiscal year 1969 and fiscal year 1969 is not yet even begun, how is it you can put that figure down as the basis for a budget request but you have not updated the fiscal 1968 figure of a year ago ?
Mr. HARRISON. I do not quite know, Mr. Andrews, how we could update the figure yet because the year is not over. The billing so far for 1968 has been $8,657,000. That was for the first 8 months. Our heaviest billing, of course, is the latter part of the year when Congress is in full swing.
Mr. ANDREWS. The latter part of the fiscal year?
Mr. HARRISON. The latter part of the fiscal year, yes, sir. So we will not know until this year is up what the total amount will be for 1968. It is impossible for us to tell exactly. We try to be more accurate and I think we will be but
Mr. ANDREWS. You have told us repeatedly that you have no control over the volume of your business.
Mr. HARRISON. We do not.
Mr. ANDREWS. Your business is generated by, first, the Congress; and secondly, by Government agencies. Is that correct?
Mr. HARRISON. That is right, sir.
INCREASE IN CONGRESSIONAL RECORD
Mr. ANDREWS. You mention in your general statement that the first session of the 90th Congress required more pages of the Congressional Record than did the last session of the 89th Congress.
