Mr. EAGEN. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Good afternoon, Mr. Chairman and Mr. Hoyer.
As you noted, Mr. Chairman, the fiscal year 2001 request for the House of Representatives totals $800,738,000. This amount is based on statutory entitlements, actual spending history, and consultation with the administrative offices of the House. Overall, this budget provides funding for the Member Representational Allowance, committees, leadership and the legislative administrative offices. The fiscal year 2001 requests are detailed in your subcommittee print. And as you noted, we have several other House officials here to answer any questions that the committee may have today. We are now available for any questions you may have.
Mr. HOYER. That was a very in-depth presentation.
Mr. TAYLOR. As stated, we have all of the prepared statements, and they have been given and they will be printed in the record.
