are primarily interested in the data that will be developed through this system that will be available to printing.

Mr. DADDARIO. Mr. Chairman, I do think that Mr. Haley's offer here is one which can be of great help.

Mr. MILLER. I am very happy to have it.

Mr. DADDARIO. We are pleased to have it, Mr. Haley, and we certainly will indicate this to Mr. Burleson.

Mr. MILLER. I would appreciate it if Mr. Felton would prepare a letter for my signature to Mr. Burleson expressing my thoughts on this matter. (The letter referred to is as follows:)

JULY 1, 1966. Hon. OMAR BURLESON, Vice Chairman, Joint Committee on Printing, The Capitol, Washington, D.C.

DEAR MR. VICE CHAIRMAN: The committee will be pleased to receive the comments of the Joint Committee on Printing and the Public Printer concerning H.R. 15638, a bill to provide for the collection, compilation, critical evaluation, publication, and sale of standard reference data. As you are aware, the committee sent a letter to Mr. James L. Harrison, the Public Printer, on January 16, 1966, soliciting his comments on the bill.

It is the committee's understanding that the assessment of the testimony which you mention in your letter of June 30, 1966, will pertain to how the objectives of this bill might be better realized by utilizing the current and proposed composition capabilities of the Government Printing Office, and that this policy statement will be prepared in conjunction with the Public Printer and other officials in the Government Printing Office. We appreciate your interest in H.R. 15638 and look forward to the statement. Sincerely yours,

GEORGE P. MILLER, Chairman. Mr. HALEY. May I add, Mr. Chairman, I said if it were wholly a printing bill it would necessarily be directed by jurisdiction to the Subcommittee on House Administration. You said it was many things, included in which would be the copyright law as well as title 15. We did not feel we were altogether circumvented.

Mr. MILLER. Is this the first meeting you have attended ?
Mr. HALEY. Yes, sir; but our troops have been here every day.

Mr. MILLER. This is the first day we have discussed printing to a large extent and how the charges should be levied.

Mr. HALEY. I am sure there will be assistance furnished in the Government Printing Office, however indirect, in connection with this proposal.

Mr. VIVIAN. I would be interested in having some information on whether other activities of the Government are furnished to serve some sector of our economy and whether such activities are handled in such a way as to return a significant faction of the cost back to the Government agency providing the service through the sale of publications. How many instances there are of this situation.

Mr. DADDARIO. Mr. Haley, that can be provided ?
Mr. HALEY. Yes.
Mr. DADDARIO. Mr. Vivian has raised an interesting point.
(The information requested is as follows:)

The Comptroller General

in his unpublished opinion addressed to the Public Printer dated Jan. 20, 1950 (B-88494), affirmed the propriety of private commercial publication of A EC-sponsored scientific books where no expenditure of Government funds for printing and binding is involved. The Comptroller General's opinion cited the broad authority contained in the Atomic Energy Commission Act of 1946, as amended, and referred specificially to provisions now found in secs. 3(b) and 141(b) of the Atomic Energy Commission Act of 1954 (42 U.S.C. 2013b and 2161b).
