LEGISLATIVE BRANCH APPROPRIATIONS FOR

FISCAL YEAR 1998

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1997.

Mr. WALSH. The committee will come to order.

We begin by welcoming everyone to our hearing today.

My name is Jim Walsh. I am the new Chairman of the Legislative Branch Subcommittee on Appropriations. Ed Lombard is the clerk for the subcommittee and resident institutional memory. And we have a number of new Members who I will introduce in just a second.

What I would like to do is just make a couple of personal comments, if I may, and that is that I am really excited about this opportunity to chair this very, very important subcommittee. I think all of us who are here have a sense of the history of the place and the institution that we belong to, and I think one of the benefits of being on this subcommittee is that we will learn a great deal more about this institution and the legislative branch.

There are literally thousands of people who work for the Congress, the House, the Senate, the Library, the other departments. I think we need to let them know that we care about them and that the decisions that we make in this subcommittee will affect them. And we hope it will affect them in a positive way. We want to improve their quality of life, where they work, the conditions they work in. What they do is very, very important to all of us and the ability our ability to do our jobs.

We are entrusted with a great deal, the bill we produce, and for me it is very exciting to have oversight for the House, the Senate, especially the House, and the Library of Congress and all the other agencies we have in our jurisdiction.

The Library of Congress is the repository of our Nation's history. It has it all, from the Mayflower, to Yorktown, to Kitty Hawk, Pearl Harbor, the Apollo project, right up until today, and they will be recording the history of whatever we accomplish or fail to accomplish in the 105th Congress. So it is really a neat subcommittee assignment, and I hope everybody enjoys it as much as I do, or more, perhaps.

Before we begin, I would like to welcome the Members of the subcommittee. We have a number of changes, a number of new individuals. And as I said, my name is Jim Walsh, I am from New York State, New York's 25th Congressional District, Syracuse is my home. I am the Chair.

We also have on our side, Bill Young of Florida, the returning Vice Chairman; Duke Cunningham of California. Good to have you with us, Duke.

Zach Wamp of Tennessee. Zach is just arriving.
