his past summer the Office completed work on Supplement IV (1998) to the tion of the United States Code, consisting of seven volumes. The Office has also completed Supplement V (1999) to the 1994 edition of the Code consisting of lumes, which is the final supplement to the 1994 edition of the Code. Work has iced on the next main edition of the Code, the 2000 edition, which will consist of 2 volumes. Because of the enormous amount of work involved for the Office and vernment Printing Office to publish a new edition, our goal was to start the first es in January. However, this schedule has been slowed by several factors. The ignificant factors are that Congress did not adjourn until December 15, 2000, and out one-third of the pages of laws enacted in the second session involved bills that enacted into law by incorporation by reference in other bills. As a result reliable for many acts did not become readily available and the final classification of all the enacted during the second session of the 106th Congress was not completed until the start of this year.

The ninth annual updated version of the Code on CD-ROM (updated to January 5, 9) has just been released. The tenth annual version of the Code on CD-ROM dated to Jan. 23, 2000) should be released later this year. Upon the completion of a ›plement or main edition, HIR and GPO use the Code database that is prepared for blishing the Code to produce the CD-ROM. This Code database is available on the ternet at a much earlier date than the CD-ROM, because the Code database on the ternet is updated when individual titles of the Code are approved for printing. In ddition, the Code classification tables update the Code database available on the nternet. Thus users have available the current text of any section of the Code, or the atest available text of that section plus a citation to any later laws that affect the section.

A draft of a bill to codify Title 40, Public Buildings, Property, and Works, has been completed, and should be introduced in the next few days. This project was delayed because of the assignment of codification attorneys to more pressing Code projects, and the development of a new format for the tables appearing in the report that will accompany the introduction of the bill. These tables will hopefully prove to be easier and more informative for users. The Office continues to review other titles of the Code to see how best to proceed with enactment of other titles into positive law, and has identified several titles as candidates for enactment. The Office also continues to assist any committee or executive department that wishes to undertake a project to enact a title of the Code into positive law or to prepare revisions to update titles of the Code previously enacted into positive law.

This completes my prepared statement. I will be pleased to respond to any

I appreciate having the opportunity to appear today. I am ready to assist you in anyway throughout the development of the FY2002 spending bill for the House and will be delighted to answer any questions you may have.

Statement of the Honorable Wilson Livingood
Sergeant at Arms, U.S. House of Representatives

The Subcommittee on Legislative Appropriations
For the Fiscal Year 2002 Budget Submission
Of the Office of the Sergeant at Arms

Good morning Mr. Chairman, Mr. Moran, and members of the Committee, it is a pleasure to be here to discuss the Office of the Sergeant at Arms budget request for Fiscal Year 2002.

As Sergeant at Arms, my office continues to ensure the safety and security of all Members of Congress, their staff, visiting world leaders, and the general public. I review and implement all security issues related to the Congress and oversee the physical security of the United States Capitol, its grounds, and the House Office Buildings.

The Sergeant at Arms office is comprised of the following divisions: Chamber Security, Police Services/Special Events, Garage and Parking Security, Administration, and Identification Services. Through these divisions I am able to oversee security on the House Floor and Galleries, the Appointments Desk, and the House Garages, and administer the distribution of Members' pins and staff identification badges. With the recent approval of my request for an office re-organization, I have merged the divisions of Police Services and Special Events and developed a career path for Garage and Parking Security staff. I am pleased to report that we were able to accomplish this re-organization without an increase in personnel funding or total number of FTE's.

With the onset of the 107th Congress, my office distributed new identification badges and parking permits for all House employees. My office provided security and logistical support during the Opening Day ceremonies, the Electoral College, the Presidential Inauguration, and the President's Address to Congress. During this past year, I have worked closely with the Clerk of the House, the Chief Administrative Officer, and the Architect of the Capitol in forming the House Operations Recovery Team (HORT). HORT is responsible for the development and implementation of an operations contingency plan in the event of an emergency. As a member of both the United States Capitol Police Board and the United States Capitol Guide Board, I have been able to actively participate in establishing policies and guidelines to safeguard the Capitol complex. Additionally, I have met with the Architect of the Capitol to begin security planning for the Capitol Visitor's Center.

My request for non-personnel expenses such as travel; rent, communications, and utilities (RCU); supplies and materials; equipment; and other services for fiscal year 2002 is $408,000. In addition to general expenses, funds have been requested for the purchase of Member pins,
