STATEMENT OF ELMER B. STAATS, COMPTROLLER GENERAL OF

THE UNITED STATES

ACCOMPANIED BY:

ARTHUR SCHOENHAUT, EXECUTIVE SECRETARY
HARRY R. VAN CLEVE, GENERAL COUNSEL

HOUSE ACTION Senator HOLLINGS. Today the subcommittee begins hearings on the Legislative Branch Appropriations Bill for 1975 (H.R. 14012). The bill was reported by the Committee on Appropriations of the House of Representatives on April 4 and is expected to pass the House before the Easter recess begins later this week.

_The bill as reported to the House would appropriate $603,221,280. However, in accordance with the usual practice, the funds exclusively for the operations and activities of the Senate-including two items under the Architect of the Capitol-have been left for decision and insertion by the Senate. When the Senate-related items are added, the total of the budget estimates now before us is $712,664,275.

The House Appropriations Committee is recommending reductions amounting to $5,877,985 to the estimates reflecting :

(1) A slower rate of growth than proposed for the new Office of Technology assessment;

(2) A reduction in the number of new employees requested for the Library of Congress;

(3) Provision for 9-months funding rather than 12-months funding for most of the new positions throughout the bill.
