WITNESSES

HON. CARL PERKINS, A REPRESENTATIVE IN CONGRESS FROM

THE STATE OF KENTUCKY
DAVID L. ARMSTRONG, COMMONWEALTH'S ATTORNEY FOR
THE 30TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT OF KENTUCKY
Mr. SLACK. The committee will please come to order.

This afternoon, we shall be pleased to hear from our distinguished colleague, the chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee, Hon. Carl Perkins, from the State of Kentucky.

It is my understanding, Mr. Chairman, that you want to discuss two items, mainly law enforcement assistance and also the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration appropriation.

Mr. PERKINS. That is correct.
Mr. SLACK. Please proceed.

Mr. PERKINS. First, let me say that we will hear from the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration group first. From our State is the Commonwealth's Attorney, from our largest county in Kentucky, Jefferson County, which includes the City of Louisville. Mr. Armstrong has some observations that I feel will be most beneficial for the committee. He is one of our better prosecuting officers in the country, in my judgment, and I think his testimony will be very fruitful, Mr. Chairman.

Mr. SLACK. Thank you. We will be pleased to hear from Mr. Armstrong

You have a rather lengthy statement, Mr. Armstrong. Would you like to have it inserted in the record and summarize the main points?

Mr. ARMSTRONG. Yes, Mr. Chairman.

Mr. Slack. Without objection, we shall insert the full text of the statement and ask you, Mr. Armstrong, to summarize the contents. [The statement follows:)
