This is not an appropriation but a limitation on the total amount
under all funds which may be expended by the Architect of the Capitol in
any one fiscal year for travel. Travel is done in connection with
public works and other construction projects; purchase, repair, or
improvement of equipment; and visits to nurseries to inspect plant
material. The amount of travel varies from time to time and is
determined by the extent of the workload placed upon the Architect of
the Capitol from year to year. The annual limitation of $20,000 has
remained unchanged since fiscal year 1961.
An appropriation for "Contingent Expenses" has been provided annually since 1956 to
enable the Architect to make surveys and studies, and to meet unforeseen expenses
in connection with activities under the care of the Architect of the Capitol.
Rental of warehouse space and related expenses as authorized by the Act of December
13, 1973 (87 Stat. 704) were funded in this appropriation until fiscal year 1986.
In fiscal year 1987 the authority was transferred to the "Capitol Buildings"
In fiscal year 1987, $50,000 was allowed on an annual basis for this appropriation.
An increase of $50,000 is requested to bring this allotment back to a level
sufficient to meet the needs for which this appropriation is made.
In addition to the fiscal year 1986 appropriation of $96,000, $310,740 of prior "No
Year" funding was available for obligation in fiscal year 1986 for a total of
Contingent Expenses (continued)
