LEGISLATIVE BRANCH APPROPRIATIONS FOR

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
HON. JEFF TRANDAHL, CLERK OF THE HOUSE
DR. JOHN F. EISOLD, ATTENDING PHYSICIAN
Mr. TAYLOR. The meeting will come to order. Today we begin the hearings on the budget submissions of the various legislative branch agencies in explaining their requests for fiscal year 2001 appropriations. Each member has been given a copy of the printed budget justifications. Also the staff has prepared the customary subcommittee print, which contains the budget and historical data on the legislative budget. The total appropriations request that will be considered is $2.1 billion. In addition, there are $41 million in offsetting receipts and other collections and $1.1 billion in other revenues that we collected by the legislative agencies. By tradition, the House does not consider the budgets of the other body. The Senate will submit and consider their own. The fiscal year 2001 budget for the Senate totals some $624.7 million.
The committee will hear the justifications from each agency in turn. At the conclusion of that process, the committee will mark up the 2001 bill.
I am joined today by Congressman Hoyer, Mr. Pastor, the ranking member of the subcommittee, will be with us in just a few minutes.
I yield to you, Mr. Hoyer, if you have any statement.
Mr. HOYER. I have no opening statement, Mr. Chairman. Thank you very much.
Mr. TAYLOR. When the ranking member gets here, perhaps if he wishes he will make some statements.
We will now take up the budget request for the House of Representatives and several joint items. The Chief Administrative Officer, assisted by the Office of Finance, will come forward and each will submit the budget. That material is then included in the President's budget. The House budget request totals $800.7 million, and that includes funds for the operations of member offices, commit
