WEDNESDAY, MAY 13, 1959. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

WITNESSES BALPH R. ROBERTS, CLERK OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES H. NEWLIN MEGILL, ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT BOBERT H. HARPER, ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT FOR FINANCE AND BUDGET Mr. NoRRELL. Gentlemen, the committee will please come to order. We start our legislative appropriation hearings for 1960 this morning. In looking over the items that are being requested in the budget, we find that the total of the request, $105,460,005, not counting the Senate, is below 1959 appropriations by $567,710. That is fine. I hope that fact will be well noted.

We have a new member of the subcommittee, Congressman Steed. Congressman Steed was elected to the 81st Congress and has been reelected since that time. We are glad to have Mr. Steed as a member of the committee. I know he will make a great contribution. We have this morning our Clerk, Mr. Roberts, as our first witness. Mr. Roberts, at this time we are glad to have you, and you may proceed with your general statement.

GENERAL STATEMENT
Mr. ROBERTS. Mr. Chairman, I have been happy to appear before

committee and are already thoroughủy familiar with the basic
requirements for this appropriation.
Today, I am actually appearing in two capacities. One as Budget
Officer for the House of Representatives and the other as Clerk of

First, I wish to present to you as fully as I can the overall budget
for the House of Representatives; and,

Secondly, I am prepared to justify in detail that portion of the budget which relates to the activities of the Office of the Clerk. I shall address myself at this time to the overall budget, reserving for a later time a detailed statement of the functions and operations

While I am generally familiar with the activities of the other
