Increase

% $64,232,000 $71,419,000

$7,187,000 11.2% The Capitol Police budget request for FY95 is $71,419,000, an increase of $7,187,000 (11.2%) over the amount appropriated for FY94. Included in this request is full funding for the current 1,303 full-time equivalent (FTE) positions and an additional five positions for the new Senate Page Residence, for a total of 1,308 FTE positions. This is a reduction of 54 positions from the authorized level as of September 30, 1992, and represents the number of FTE positions that the Department must eliminate by September 30, 1995. In order to absorb the increased costs for benefits and scheduled increases during FY94, an additional twenty-five to thirty (25-30) police positions had to be left vacant. These vacant positions going unfilled coupled with the fifty-four (54) positions that were eliminated have placed a severe strain on the personnel resources of the Department. It is imperative that the Capitol Police receive full funding for the requested 1,308 FTE positions for FY95, if they are to provide the level of security that the Congress and the Congressional Community have come to expect from the Department. The five new swom positions that are being requested are to staff the new Senate Page Residence which will be occupied in September 1994. The increase for these positions is $194,000. Funding for overtime was increased by $500,000 to cover the increased hourly rate of earning, programmed administrative changes (four-hour rule) in the payment of overtime, and to fully fund the actual cost of overtime expenses. The Capitol Police have been underfunded for overtime cost for the past several years. The other increased cost for Personnel is due to scheduled increases for longevities, rank adjustments, FY95 COLA, the increased cost for employee benefits, and funding for the 25-30 vacancies that were carried during FY94. The Capitol Police are also requesting funding of $2,113,000 for Locality Pay. This pay is very similar to the geographic allowance that is given to other federal law enforcement agencies in the Washington metropolitan area.

1.2% The General Expense Budget Submission for FY95 is $2,000,000. There is a moderate increase for the General Expense Budget for FY95.
