STATEMENT OF ELMER B. STAATS, COMPTROLLER GENERAL OF
THE UNITED STATES
THE UNITED STATES
We start hearings this morning on the legislative branch appropriation bill for fiscal year 1969. The House committee schedule is to report the appropriation bill to the House on June 21, 1968. This is only a few days before the beginning of the new fiscal year, so I have concluded it would be desirable to do as much work as possible on the bill so that when it arrives from the House, we can proceed promptly to process it through the Senate.
INTRODUCTION OF WITNESSES
We have with us this morning the Comptroller General of the United States, Mr. Elmer B. Staats, and his associates. Will you please introduce your associates for the record, Mr. Staats?
Mr. STAATS. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
To my left is Mr. Frank Weitzel, Assistant Comptroller General; on my immediate right, Robert Keller, General Counsel of the GAO; to his right, Mr. Herschel Simmons, Director of Administrative Services; and next to him is Mr. Cornett, who is our budget officer; and Mr. Morse, next to the reporter, Director of our Office of Policy and Special Studies. Senator BARTLETT. Thank you.
