HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
CONTINGENT EXPENSES, 1950
HARRY LIVINGSTON, Disbursing Clerk
SELECT AND SPECIAL COMMITTEES
Mr. MCGRATH. We have for consideration at this time the supplemental estimates for fiscal year 1950 as contained in House Document 640.
We have with us Mr. Livingston. Have you a statement you would like to make, Mr. Livingston?
Mr. LIVINGSTON. We have in this deficiency bill pending a requested additional $50,000 for special and select committees for 1950. For the fiscal year 1950 there was originally appropriated $600,000. Then we had in the first deficiency bill an extra $100,000.
As of June 30, 1950, we had spent $685,607 of that money. Of course on these committees it is a hard thing to say what expenses they will or have incurred to be paid after the end of the fiscal year of 1950. We have approximately $15,000 left from the original $700,000. We are doubtful whether that will carry us through.
Some of these bills come in as late as 6 or 7 months after the end of the fiscal year. It is a question whether the committees might be able to get by with $30,000 or $35,000. It is just a question.
Mr. McGrath. Do you think you can get along with $35,000 instead of $50,000?
Mr. LIVINGSTON. I think possibly $30,000 might be enough. It is a guess. In fact, I think we should recommend that we cut that to $30,000. Mr. McGrath. Are there any questions on that item, gentlemen? Mr. CANFIELD. Mr. Chairman? Mr. MCGRATH. Mr. Canfield.
Mr. CANFIELD. Mr. Livingston, for the purposes of the record, do you have a breakdown of the amounts expended? I ask that in the event that someone on the floor asks for the same.
Mr. LIVINGSTON. There is our chart.
