SALARIES, MILEAGE FOR THE MEMBERS, AND EXPENSE ALLOWANCE FOR

THE SPEAKER Mr. ROBERTS. With your permission, we will now take up the first estimate covering salaries, mileage, and expenses of Members as appearing in the subcommittee print on page 1.

For compensation of Members of the House of Representatives, and the Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico, fiscal year 1961, $10,672,530, which is based on a salary of $22,500 each; $12,500 additional per annum for the salary of the Speaker, $740,000 estimated for Government contribution to the retirement fund; $29,500 estimated as contribution to Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance, and $3,530 estimated as contribution to Federal Employees' Health Benefits Act, or an increase of $35,530 over that appropriated for fiscal year 1960.

Mr. Chairman, these figures vary slightly from those carried in your subcommittee print because the Sergeant at Arms notified me that the figure he submitted to the Budget in connection with the health program was in error.

Mr. NORRELL. How much do the figures vary from the budget?
Mr. ROBERTS. Very little.
Mr. NORRELL. How much?

Mr. HARPER. $31,000. The Sergeant at Arms gave us a figure of $3,625 when in fact it should have been $35,530 to cover the Members' health program. So there is a $31,905 difference and that is in the item relating to the health benefits program.

Mr. NORRELL. Is the increase $35,530 over the 1960 appropriation, as you state, or is it $34,530 ? Have you doublechecked that?

Mr. ROBERTS. The correct figure is $34,530.

MEMBERS PARTICIPATION IN HEALTH, RETIREMENT, AND INSURANCE

PROGRAM

Mr. NORRELL. How many members are assumed to participate in the new medical program?

Mr. HARPER. We do not know, but the Sergeant at Arms used the formula laid down by the Civil Service Commission mentioned previously.

Mr. NORRELL. How many now participate in the retirement and insurance programs?

Mr. HARPER. Mr. Chairman, the Sergeant at Arms uses the same formula in arriving at the figures that we use. I did not check those with him, but we put that formula in the record. They have not been registered. Members will be asked to register during the month of June the same as employees. Mr. NORRELL. It is assumed 'how many will enroll ?

Mr. HARPER. We presume 85 percent of those eligible will enroll, from among the employees.

Mr. NORRELL. What is 85 percent of the membership? Mr. HARPER. The Sergeant at Arms requested funds to cover the entire membership.

Mr. NORRELL. How many now participate in retirement and insurance programs?

Mr. ROBERTS. Do you refer to the Members, or the employees ?
Mr. NORRELL. How many Members ?
