LEGISLATIVE BRANCH APPROPRIATIONS FOR

FISCAL YEAR 1979

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1978. Mr. SHIPLEY. The committee will come to order.

We commence hearings on the fiscal 1979 budget for the various Legislative Branch agencies under the jurisdiction of the Subcommittee.

We have a new Member of the Subcommittee who is not here, but we want to welcome him officially—Mr. Bill Chappell, Jr. of Florida. The other Members of the committee who were here last year are with us again this year except for Bob Traxler of Michigan.

We have a new staff member this year, Ed Lombard, and Ed, we welcome you aboard and know under the guidance of Earl you are going to make a terrific Clerk and staff member.

Earl knows the budget inside out and back again, and we hate to see Earl leave, but I think, frankly, he has made a good judgment because I have made a decision to leave myself.

Earl, I am going to join you someplace, I don't know where.

The budget we are going to consider today totals $957,386,500 and excludes the Senate

items traditionally left for insertion by that body. The Senate items total $195,130,000, for a total budget of $1,152,517,000.

Of course, only a portion of this budget is for Congressional Operations, $738,020,300. The balance of the funds support statutory and administrative responsibilities of the Executive Branch and the public of such agencies as the Library of Congress, Architect of the Capitol, Copyright Royalty Tribunal, Botanic Garden, Government Printing Office, the General Accounting Office and the Cost-Accounting Standards Board.

At this point in the record, we will insert the comparative statement appearing on pages II through VII of the Subcommittee Print.
