LEGISLATIVE BRANCH APPROPRIATIONS FOR
FISCAL YEAR 1996
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1995.
Mr. PACKARD. Ladies and gentlemen, I think we will start the hearing. There are others coming but we would prefer not to wait. We have gotten verbal approval from the Minority Leadership of the committee that they would not object to us going ahead.
We will commence our hearing. This is the first of our hearings for the Legislative Branch agencies that come under the jurisdiction of this committee. We will be having hearings today and tomorrow, and then we will be having hearings Wednesday and Thursday of next week. During today and the other three days, we will be hearing the appropriations requests of all of the agencies that come within the jurisdiction of this committee.
Before we begin this hearing, I would like to put in the record the names of the Members of the subcommittee. There is myself, Ron Packard, the subcommittee chairman; and then Bill Young from Florida. Several of these Members are Chairmen of other subcommittees or Ranking Members, so sporadically they will be able to come, they will come and go as they need to.
Bill Young from Florida is the Vice Chairman of the subcommittee; Charles Taylor from North Carolina served last year, will be continuing to serve on the subcommittee; Dan Miller from Florida; Roger Wicker from Mississippi is on the committee. These are the Republicans.
On the Minority side, Vic Fazio will be the Ranking Minority Member, from California. We are very pleased to have Vic continue on this committee because he has had a significant amount of experience, and we appreciate that experience. Ray Thornton from Arkansas; and Julian Dixon from California.
We also will have Bob Livingston with us off and on. He is a Member of this subcommittee, from Louisiana, and is the Chairman of the full committee.
David Obey from Wisconsin is also going to be a Member of this subcommittee, the Ranking Minority Member of the full committee. They will be in and out as they can attend.
I would like to insert into the record at this point the actual jurisdiction of this committee. I won't read that jurisdiction, but it establishes the jurisdiction of the agencies that come under this subcommittee.
