Washington,'D.C. The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 10 a.m. in room 2128, Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. William A. Barrett (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.

Present: Representatives Barrett, Sullivan, Reuss, Ashley, Moorhead, Stephens, St Germain, Gonzalez, Widnall, Stanton, Blackburn, Brown, Heckler, and Rousselot.

Mr. BARRETT. The meeting will come to order, please.

Today we begin 3 weeks of hearings on pending housing and community development legislation. We do so at a time of great certainty and frustration concerning future Federal efforts in housing and community development. The President's housing proposal recently submitted to Congress represents, in the eyes of many, a full retreat from the bipartisan national commitment to provide decent housing for our citizens. Congressional proposals, on the other hand, attempt to maintain that commitment, providing new and improved tools to serve our housing needs.

I hope that we are mistaken in our view of the administration's goal. I hope our differences involve only the most effective ways to serve housing needs and not the need to serve them at all. Today we will hear from the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, James T. Lynn. Mr. Secretary, we are delighted to have you and your associates with us today. We are also happy to have with us James Neville, who is Assistant Administrator for Rural Housing of the Department of Agriculture.

At this point in the hearing record, I wish to insert the four major bills before the subcommittee: H.R. 10036, the bill introduced by Congressman Ashley, and myself; and H.R. 7277, H.R. 10688, and H.R. 10689, the administration's community development and housing bills.
