SUPPLEMENTAL LEGISLATIVE BRANCH APPROPRIATIONS

FOR FISCAL 1991 Mr. Fazio. We will now consider the supplemental requests for fiscal year 1991 for the various Legislative Branch Agencies under the jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Legislative Branch Appropriations.

The fiscal year 1991 supplemental requests total $12,115,000 with an $800,000 reprogramming request. This amount consists of $11,504,000 for the Capitol Police overtime and additional personnel, equipment and supplies; $611,000 for increased security at the Library of Congress including personnel and equipment; an $800,000 reprogramming plus authorizing language for a secondary storage facility for the Library of Congress; and finally revised language to exempt the Books for the Blind and Physically Handicapped program from the M-account cancellation stipulated in the Defense Authorization Act.

Ms. POPE'S STATEMENT Ms. POPE. I think in the interest of saving time, I will just very briefly summarize my testimony.

As you noted, we are going to request a supplemental appropriation, largely because of increased security needs due to the Desert Storm operation. The police have been on 12-hour shifts, and they have been doing a superb job. But, their resources are strained right now.

What we are requesting, just very generally for the supplemental, would be a total of $11.5 million in supplemental funding for Fiscal Year 1991. Approximately, $10 million of that would be for overtime.

We also request funding for 10 additional civilian freight handlers for the off-site delivery center and would like to convert 12 of the anticipated 50 House civilian positions to canine officers.

There is an additional $1.2 million in supplies and equipment. That would be for the supplemental request we make.

I will be happy to answer any questions the Subcommittee might have.

Mr. Fazio. Thank you Ms. Pope. Chief Kerrigan do you have a statement at this time?

CHIEF KERRIGAN'S STATEMENT Chief KERRIGAN. Mr. Chairman, and members of the committee, I am honored to meet with you today to discuss the Fiscal Year 1992 budget request for the Capitol Police. The need for security has never been more evident than has been shown in the past few weeks.
