OPENING STATEMENT

[ocr errors]

Mr. TAYLOR. Good morning. The committee will come to order.

Today we begin our hearings on the budget submissions of the various Legislative Branch agencies on their fiscal year 2002 appropriations. It is our hope to complete these hearings, the subcommittee markup, have full committee markup, and floor action by the end of July.

The fiscal year 2002 bill will be a very tight bill indeed. With mandated changes in the House of Representatives, specifically the House-passed committee funding resolution and the increase in Members' representational allowances, and our tight 302(b) allocation means that once we pay for the cost-of-living adjustments and make allowances for mandated price level increases, we may have to cut some portions of the budgets presented by our agencies.

The total appropriations request that will be considered is $2.1 billion. By tradition, the House does not consider the budget of the other body. The Senate will consider their own request. If the Senate items are included, the total legislative branch request is $2.8 billion.

With that in mind, I would like to welcome our new Ranking Member, Jim Moran. Jim and I have worked very closely together on the District of Columbia bill for 2 years.

f ti

Mr. HOYER. Mr. Chairman, I want to thank you for holding these hearings. We are pleased to get started. I notice Mr. Lombard who has been with this subcommittee for the last century and a half, who clearly knows it as well as anybody in Washington, is with us. I am pleased that Jim Moran has joined us as the Ranking Member. I think your comments are correct. You two have worked together closely in the past. I think that will bode well for the legislative branch and its component parts.

I also am very pleased to welcome, as our Chief Clerk of this subcommittee, Liz Dawson, with whom I have had the pleasure of working on the Military Construction Subcommittee. She is an extraordinarily able individual, and I know that the legislative branch will be advantaged by her role in this subcommittee. I look forward to working with her. Mark Murray, of course, will continue as minority clerk. He does an outstanding job and will do well, I know, as he continues his responsibilities.

Mr. Chairman, I am eager to hear from today's witnesses, of course, Dr. Billington and all of the very talented people, including the General, that the Librarian brought along. I am also eager to hear from the House officers and the Architect. I am very concerned, as all of you know, with some specific issues that are applicable to the Library, and also to the Architect's responsibilities for this Capitol in terms of fire safety, worker injuries, long-term use of temporary workers, and the custodians' lawsuit which I will be asking the Architect about. I think we have come a long way. As I understand it, that suit has been settled in a way that was appropriate.

There are other subjects I look forward to discussing.

I am pleased to continue on this subcommittee and work with you, Mr. Chairman, and with Mr. Moran in making sure that the legislative branch can do the job that the American public, not only ourselves but the American public expects of it. Thank you, sir.

INTRODUCTION OF SUBCOMMITTEE MEMBERS Mr. TAYLOR. Thank you, Mr. Hoyer.

We have Mr. Jerry Lewis who has served on this committee for several years, and Ray LaHood who is serving his first term on the committee. Mr. Lewis, did you have any comments?

Mr. LEWIS. Only, Mr. Chairman, to tell you that I have a markup across the hall, so I will be back and forth.

Mr. HOYER. I was remiss in that Mr. LaHood was certainly one of the most talented staff people in Washington D.C., and until he was demoted to being a Member, he had a lot of power. We are pleased to have him here.

Mr. TAYLOR. We just had an announcement of votes, so why don't we go do that and come right back as quickly as possible.

[Recess.)
Mr. TAYLOR. The committee will come back to order.

As I said earlier we have Jim Moran as our new Ranking Member on the subcommittee. I know, of course, we will miss Ed Pastor who was our Ranking Member for the prior 2 years and whom I enjoyed working with, but we know we will be able to work just as closely with Mr. Moran. Jim's dedication, as always, is great.
