PREFACE
In this compilation two committee prints relating to Senate inquiries and investigations, formerly issued separately by the Committee on Rules and Administration at the commencement of each new session, have been combined into one document.
Part I consists of a revised version of the committee print entitled "Expenditure Authorizations for Senate Committees", -which provides Senate committees with accurate and specific information on the statutory requirements for expenditure authorizations as they will apply at the commencement of the second session of the Ninety-fourth Congress. Included are sample resolutions and budget forms, regulations in respect to procurement of consultants and the training of prof essional staff members, and rates of compensation for staffs o[f Senate committees which, pursuant to the Order of the President pro tempore of October 2., 1975, are effective as of October 1, 1975.
Part 11 is a revision of the committee print entitled "Senate Inquiries and Investigations", which in its previous format listed ,imounts authorized for and expended by Serate, committees for inquir-ies and investigations during the past three Congresses. In the new format the statistics for expenditures have been dropped since, in contrast with the authorizations which remain at a constant figure. the expenditures expressed at any given time are mostly susceptible to future upward revision. The space formerly used to express expenditures,- the Committee believes, can more profitably be utilized by extending the listing of amounts authorized from three Congresses to the twelve Congresses encompassed in this present compilation.
Since every effort has been made to include sufficient details within the text of this document, I will stress here only the most important considerations in respect to expenditure authorizations which should be borne in mind by Members of the Senate and their committee personnel who will be involved with the procedure:
Fiscal year-The fiscal year for expenditure authorizations will be the 12-month period from March 1, 1976, through February 28, 1977.V
Submieion date.-All annual expenditure-authorization resolutions for 1976 must be reported to the Senate not later than January 31, 1976.
C~nstdt ant8 and training.-Any committee desiring authority and funds to hire consultants or to train its professional staff must include appropriate language therefor in its annual resolution. In respect to consultants for a committee, it should be duly noted that the selection





IV

of the same must be done jointly by the chairman and the ranking ority member thereof. Also, the Rules Committee must receive
five days' advance notice of the intention to appoint.
Budgets and supporting materials.- (1) Committee budgets should, be prepared on the standard forms obtainable from the Rules Committee offices; (2) an original and legible duplicate of the budget and supporting letter should be submitted to the Rules Committee at the earliest possible date; and (3) the supporting letter should, when feasible, be signed jointly by the chairman and the ranking minority member of the f ull committee.
Supplemental expenditure resolutions.-While not pertinent at this time it is important for committees which may eventually seek supplemental funds to be aware of and to comply with the statutory provision that a supplemental resolution must have an accompanying report expressing the reason the. funds then requested had not been requested in the committee's annual resolution. This provision is fully explained in the chapter entitled "Supplemental Expenditure Authorizations". ("See p. 13.)
Increments to $10,000 per Congress.-Resolutions to obtain funds in addition to the $10,000 per Congress for routine purposes should be in the form prescribed in this compilation.
Select, special, and ioint eommittee8.-In respect to select and special committees of the Senate, and joint committees financed by the Senate, the Committee on Rules and Administration has determined that the procedures and regulations set forth in this document will apply to such committees where appropriate and feasible.
Once again I remind all Senate committee and subcommittee chairmen that the 1976 annual expenditure-authorization resolutions must be reported no later than January 31, 1976. Committees are urged to submit their budgets and supporting., materials to the Rules Committee at the earliest possible date, since it is the Committee's intention to schedule these resolutions as one of its first orders of business.
The cooperation of all involved Members and staff personnel
expediting this procedure will be deeply appreciated. If the Members ,or staff of the Committee on Rules and Administration can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to call upon us.
HowARD W. CAwNox,
CWrman, Committee on Rules -and Admini8tration.

ANNUAL EXPENDITURE AUTHORIZATIONS

Standing committees of the Senate requiring funds in addition to the $10,000 per Congress authorized for each such committee by section 134(a) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 must re-quest those additional funds (other than increments to that $10,000 per Congress, for routine purposes) pursuant to the procedure set forth in section 133 (g) of the same Act. Essentially, the requirement is that the funds must be requested in the form of an annual expenditureauthorization resolution, and that the one resolution contain a specification of the amounts sought for each of the committee's subcommittees. Funds in addition to and for the same purposes as those obtained pursuant to an annual resolution, must be obtained by supplemental expenditure-authorization resolutions (see following chapter).
Statutory Authority
That portion of section 133 (g) which relates only to annual resolutions is as follows:
SECTION 133 (g) OF THE LEGISLATIVE REORGANIZATION ACT OF 1946 '
(2 U.S.C. 190a)
(g) Each standing committee of the Senate which, in any
year beginning on or after January 1, 1971, requires authorization for the expenditure of funds in excess of the amount specified by section 134 (a) of this Act shall offer one annual authorization resolution to procure such authorization. Each such annual authorization resolution shall include a specification of the amount of all such funds sought by such committee for expenditure by all subcommittees thereof during that year and the amount so sought for each such subcommittee.
The annual authorization resolution of any such committee of the Senate for each year beginning on or after January 1, 1971, shall be offered not later than January 31 of that year, except that, whenever the designation of members of standing committees of the Senate occurs during the first session of any Congress at a date later than January 20, such resolution may be offered by any standing committee of the Senate at any time within thirty days after the date on which a majori of the members of such committee have been designated during that session. * *
'As amended, Sec. 108(a) of Pub. Law 91-510, 84 Stat. 1148,
Oct. 26, 1970.

Fiscal Year for Expenditure Authorizations
The fiscal year for expenditure authorizations for inquiries and investigations runs from March 1 through February 28 (29) of the succeeding year. This 12-month period, 'W-*'ith an overlap of two months into a new calendar year, has been established by the Committee on Rules and Administration in order to give the Senate sufficient time at the commencement of each new session to accommodate the several steps in the required procedure.
Submission Date for Annual Resolutions
Annual expenditure-authorization resolutions must be offered by Senate committees not later than January 31 of each year. The only exception obtains when during the first session of a Congress the designation of the members of standing committees occurs later than January 20. In such case the resolution must be offered within 30 days of the date on which a majority of the members of a committee have been designated.
Format of Annual Resolutions
In the composition of their annual resolutions, Senate standing committees are required to follow, with any necessary modifications, one of three sample resolution forms reproduced at the end of this chapter.
Resolution Form I.-This form is intended for use by a committee desiring additional funds only. for the procurement of consultants, only for the training of professional staff, or only for consultanM and training. (See, page 7.)
Resolution Form 2.-This form is intended for use by a committee desiring a, single funding for inquiries and investigations, with or without funds for consultants or training. If a committee submits this type of resolution, it will be assumed by the Committee on Rules and Administration that the funds sought will be used by the full committee in a general investigative capacity and that no funds Ire being requested for any of its specific subcommittees as'such. (See page 8.)
Resolution Form 3.-This form is intended for use b y a committee desiring a multiple funding for inquiries and investl.&ations. with or without funds for consultants., (See page 106) 4_ I

Provision for Consultants and Staff Training
Committees anticipate the need for consultants or considering training for certain of t&ir professional staff members should note that the authority and funds for those purposes must be expressed in the text of their annual or supplemental authorization resolutions. The sample resolution forms described above are designed to accommodate requests for additional funds for those purposes. ,
Committees which do seek funds for either or both of those purposes should note carefully the regulations on procurement of consultants (page 21) and on training of professional staff (page 27), which constitute separate chapters of this compilation.






Budgets and Supporting Materials
Senate committees offering annual expenditure resolutions are required to submit to the Committee on Rules and Administration accompanying budgets together with supporting materials, in the form of letters or memorandums. All submissions should be in the form of ,an original copy and a legible duplicate.
*Budgets.-The budgets should be prepared on standardized budget forms obtainable from the Rules Committee offices. The only change in the form this year is an increase in agency contributions for employees health benefit programs, from $41.02 to $50.11 1 per month per employee.
Supporting material.-It is suggested by the Committee on Rules and Administration that, when feasible, supporting letters or memorandums be signed jointly by the chairman and rank ig minority member of requ~esting committees and/or subcommittees.

Provision for Minority Staff
Minority participation in the appointment of temporary committee personnel pursuant to annual or supplemental resolutions is provided for in section 133 (g) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946, which includes the provision that "The minority shall receive fair consideration in the appointment of staff personnel pursuant to any such annual or supplemental resolution". This provision, which was added to section 133 (g) by the Legislative Reorganizattion Act of 1970, eliminates the need for the continuance in such resolutions of the socalled "minority clause", which had been employed for several years.

INCREMENTS TO $10,000 PER CONGRESS
(FOR ROUTINE PURPOSES)

Section 134 (a) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 authorizes each standing committee of the Senate to expend not to exceed $10,000 during each Congress for the routine purposes expressed in that section. The text of section 134 (a) is as follows:
SECTION 134 (a) OF T=, LEGISLATIVE REORGANIZATION ACT OF 1946
(2 U.S.C. 190b)
SEC. 134. (a) Each standing committee of the Senate, including any subcommittee of any such committee, is authoriized to hold such hearing-s, to sit and act at such times and
places during the sessions, recesses,anadorepris
of the Senate, to require by subpena, or otherwise the attendance of such witnesses and the production of such correspondence, books, papers, and documents,, to take such testimony and to make such expenditures (not in excess of $10,.000 for each committee during any Congress) as it deems advisable. Each such committee may make investigations into any matter within its jurisdiction, may report such hearings as may be had by it, and may employ stenographic assistance at a cost not exceeding 25 cents per hundred words .2 The expenses of the committee shall be paid from the contingent fund of the Senate upon vouchers approved by the chairman.
I The provisions of 134 (a) were made applicable to the Select Committee on Small Business by Pub. Law 759 of the 81st Cong. (64l Stat.
597, Sept. 6, 1950).
'Compensation for stenographic assistance is now set by the Committee on Rules and Administration pursuant to the Act of June 27,
1956 (70 Stat. 360; 2 U.S.C. 68c).
Prior to 1971 it had been the practice in the Senate for standing committees to obtain needed increments to their $10,000 per Congress for routine expenditures by means of simple resolutions agreed to by the Senate.
Effective January 3, 1971, however, such procedure was precluded by an amendment to section 133( () of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 (by section 108 (a) of the 1970 Act), which limited any additional funds obtainable by Senate committees to annual expenditure authorizations or supplemental authorizations thereto. As a consequence, from the commencement of the Ninety-second Congress through October 11, 1971, the Committee on Rules and A1dmiinistration was required to report out any requests (it approved) for funds in addition to the statutory $10,000 per Congress in the form of supplemental expenditure-authorization resolutions.
(17)





18

Since that temporary expedient was obviously unacceptable, for continued use, the Committee on Rules and Administration recommended and was successful in obtaining an amendment to section 133
(g) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 which exempts routine-funds resolutions from the above-mentioned restriction. The text of that amendment, added by section 3 (b) of Public Law 92-136 (85 Stat. 377, Oct. 11, 1971), is as follows:
SECTION 133 (g) OF TlE LEGISLATIVE REORGANIZATION ACT
OF 1946
(2 U.S.C. 190a)
(g) * This subsection shall not apply to any resolution requesting funds in addition to the amount specified in such section 134(a) and which are to be expended only for the same purposes for which such amount may be expended.'
I As added, Sec. 3 (b) of Pub. Law 92-136, 85 Stat. 377, Oct. 11, 1971.
Accordingly, requests by standing committees for funds incrementing their $10,000 allotment per Congress may now once again be in the form customarily used. A sample resolution (Resolution Form 6) for that purpose follows:

REGULATIONS GOVERNING PROCUREMENT OF
CONSULTANTS BY SENATE COMMITTEES
(Restatement of Policy Determinations by the Committee
on Rules and Administration)


Statutory Authority
The procedures and conditions under which standing committees of the Senate may procure the services of individual consultants or o rganizations thereof are set forth in section 202(i) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946, the text of which is as follows:

SECT'ioN 202 (i) OF THE LEGISLATIVE REORGANIZATION; ACT OF 1946

(2 U.S.C. 72a)
(i) (1) Each standing committee of the Senate or House of
Representatives is authorized, with the approval of the Coinmnittee on Rules and Administration in the case of standing committees of the Senate, or the Committee on House Administration in the case of standing committees of the House of Representatives, within the limits of funds made available from the contingent funds of the respective Houses pursuant to resolutions, which shall specify the maximum amounts which may be used for such purposes, approved by such respective Houses, to procure the temporary services (not in excess of one year) or intermittent services of individual consultants, or organizations thereof, to make studies or advise the committee with respect to any matter within its jurisdiction.
(2) Such services in the case of individuals or organizations
may be procured by contract as independent contractors, or in the case of individuals by employment at daily rates of compensation not in excess of the per diem equivalent to the highest gross rate of compensation which may be paid to a regular employee of the committee. Such contracts shall not be subject to the provisions of section 3709 of the Revised Statutes (41 U.S.C. 5) or any other provision of law requiring advertising.
(3) With respect to the standing committees of the Senate,
any such consultant or organization shall be selected by the chairman and ranking minority member of the committee,
(21)





22

acting jointly. With respect to the standing committees of the House of Representatives, the standing committee concerned shall select any such consultant or organization. The committee shall submit to the Committee on Rules and Administration in the case of standing committees of the Senate, and the Committee on House Administration in the case of standing committees of the House of Representatives, information bearing on the qualifications of each consultant whose services are procured pursuant to this subsection, including organizations, and such information shall be retained by that committee and shall be made available for public inspection upon
request.1
As added, Sec. 303 of Pub. Law 91-510,84 Stat. 1179, Oct. 26,1970.

Definition of "Consultant"
For the purposes of section 202 (i), the term "consultant" shafl be deemed to be a person (or an organization of persons) possessing the necessary professional qualifications and experience to assist a Senate committee in specialized areas of its legislative responsibility.
Prerequisite for Procurement
Any Senate committee desiring to procure the services of individual consultants or of organizations thereof must first seek and obtain the required authority therefor by including within its annual or supplemental expenditure-authorization resolution an express limitation on the amount of the committee's total funding in such resolution which may be used for that purpose. A committee may not exceed that limitation for the procurement of consultants, but it may utilize unexpended funds within that limitation for other authorized purposes.
Selection of Consultants
Paragraph (3) of section 202(i) contains the stipulation that "any such consultant or organization shall be selected by the chairman and ranking minority member of the committee, acting jointly". Senate committees are requested to indicate their compliance with the above provision of law by providing that any required correspondence with the Committee on Rules and Administration (see below) be in the form of letters signed jointly by the chairman and ranking minority
member.
Rules Committee Responsibility
Section 202(i) also requires (1) that Senate committees desiring to appoint individual consultants to committee payrolls or to procure the services of individuals or organizations by contract as independent contractors must provide the Committee on Rules and Administration information bearing on the qualifications of each consultant or contractor; and (2) that such information be retained by the Committee





23

on Rules and Administration and made available for public inspection upon request.
To assist the Committee on Rules and Administration in considering requests for consultants, letters from committees should equate the, proposed consultant's particular qualifications with the specialized area the committee plans to explore. The requesting committee should include (1) the probable time period the consultant's services will be required, (2) the correlation between the. proposed consultant's qualifications and the specific committee activity, and (3) the per day consultant fee proposed to be paid.
Methods of Procurement
Any Senate committee possessing the required authority therefor may procure the services of consultants(1) by appointing individual consultants as temporary committee employees (at daily rates of compensation not exceeding the hialiest such rate which may be paid to a regular committee
employee) ; or
(2) by entering into contracts(a) between the full committee and individual consultants
(for an amount for services not exceeding the highest amount which may be paid in compensation to a regular committee employee for the same period of time involved in the contract) or
(b) between the full committee and organizations of
consultants.

Appointment of Individual Consultants
The notification of the committee's intention to appoint an individual consultant to its staff and the information concerning the qualifications of the lDroposed consultant must be received by the Committee on Rules and Xdministration flve dayg in advance of the appointment date. If during that period the requesting committee receives no notice of disapproval from the Rules Committee, the appointment shall be deemed approved.
Requests to the Committee on Rules and Administration for such approval may be expressed as inthe following sample letter:
Honorable- I
Chairman, Committee on Rules and Administration,
Room 305, Etussell Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20510
Dear Mr. Chairman:
In conformity with section 202(1) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946, as amended, and your regulations pursuant thereto, we are notifying you herewith 6f the intention (of the Subcommittee on ---) of

This appointment is made under the authority of S. Res.
(Section No. ),agreed to

Sincerely yours,

Letters requesting approval of contracts should be signed Jointly by the chairman and ranking minority member of the contracting committee and should include the original of the contract (signed by the chairman of the requesting committee and the intended contractor) and at least one copy of the contract for the files of the Committee on Rules and Administration.
Contracts (and consultants' qualifications) should be received sufficiently in advance of the contracts' effective date to permit appropriate consideration at a regular meeting of the full Committee on Rules and Administration. When contracts are approved, notice thereof will be given in w rioting, pursuant to the established- practice.

Sample Contracts
The following samples of a fixed-fee contract and a service contract are included here to indicate in a general way the type of contract which would be acceptable for the above purpose. In most instances, of course, a form would have to be adapted to the specific needs of a particular committee.

TRAINING OF PROFESSIONAL STAFF


Statutory Authority
Authority for the training of professional staff personnel of standing committees of the Senate is contained in section 202(j) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1940. The text of section 202(j) is as follows:
SECTION 202 (j) OF THE LE6iSLATIVE REORGANIZATION ACT OF 1946

(2 U.S.C. 72a)
(j) (1) Each standing committee of the Senate or House
of Representatives is authorized, with the approval of the Committee on Rules and Administration in the case of standing committees of the Senate, and the Committee on House Administration in the case of standing committees of the House of Representatives, and within the limits of funds made available from the contingent funds of the respective Houses pursuant to resolutions, which shall specify the maximum amounts which may be used for such purposes, approved by such respective Houses, to provide assistance for members of its 'professional staff in obtaining specialized training. whenever that committee determines that such training will aid the committee in the discharge of its responsibilities. Any joint committee of the Congress whose expense es are paid out of funds disbursed by the Secretary of the Senate or by the Clerk of the House, the Committee on Appropriations of the Senate, and the Majority Policy Committee and Minority Policy Committee of the Senate are each authorized to expend, for the purpose of providing assistance in accordance with paragraphs (2), (3), and (4) of this subsection for members of its staff in obtaining such training,
any part of amounts appropriated to that committee.'
(2) Such assistance may be in the form of continuance of
pay during periods of training or grants of funds to pay tuition, fees, or such other expenses of training, or both ris may be approved by the Committee on Rules and Administration or the Committee on House Administration, as the
case may be.
'As added, See. 5(b) of Pub. Law 92-136, 85 Stat. 378, Oct. 11, 10-1.
62-920-76-3 (27)




28

(3) A committee providing assistance under this subsection shall obtain from any employee receiving such assistance such agreement with respect to continued employment with the committee as the committee may deem necessary to assure that it will receive the benefits of such employee's
services upon completion of his training.
(4) During any period for which an employee is separated
from employment with a committee for the purpose of undergoing training under this subsection, such employee shall be considered to have performed service (in a nonpay status) as an employee of the committee at th 'e rate of compensation received immediately prior to commencing such training (including any increases in compensation provided by law during the period of training) for the purposes of(A) subchapter III (relating to civil service retirement) of chapter 83 of title 5, United States Code,.
(B) chapter 87 (relating to Federal employees group
life insurance) of title 5, United States Code, and
(C) chapter 89 (relating to Federal employees group
health insurance) of title 5, United States Code.2
'As added, Sec. 304 of Pub. Law 91-510, 84 Stat. 1180, Oct. 26, 1970.

Summary of Essential Requirements
While the provisions of section 202 (j) and the regulations issued, pursuant thereto by the Committee on Rules and Administration are deemed quite explicit, Senate committees desiring specialized training for any of their professional staff members should especially note the
follwingobservations:
(1) As is the case in respect to consultants, committees desiring authority and funds for the training of their professional staffs must include a specific allotment for the same in their annual or supplemental expenditure-authorization'resolutions.
(2) That portion of the committee's total funds which is allotted for training -may not be exceeded for that purpose. A committee is not precluded, however, from expending funds from that allotment for other authorized purposes.
(3) Approval by the Senate of a. resolution containing such a training allotment, however, does not complete the requirements. Specific requests, on an individual basis and in conformity with the regulations which follow below, must be submitted to the Committee on Rules and Administration for final approval.
(4) While the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 limited the training privilege to standing committees (except Appropriations), Public Law-A 92-136 (85 Stat. 378, Oct. 11, 1971) has extended the same privilege to joint committees, to the Senate Appropriations Committee, and to the Senate Majority and Minority Policy Committees.
(5) In respect to funds for training, the Committee on Rules and Administration has determined that such funds shall be allotted in expenditure-authorization resolutions only for the use of full committees. This stipulation, however, would not preclude a full corm-





29

inittee from requesting and receiving approval from the Committee on Rules and Administration for the training of a professional staff member on one of its subcommittee payrolls.


The regulations issued by the Committee on Rules and Administration in respect to training of professional staff members of Senate committees, including a sample form for the required "Agreement on Continued Employment", are as follows:

The Committee on Rules and Administration has determined that attendance at conferences, seminars, or briefings by authorized professional staff personnel will not be considered as training under the statutory provisions of section 202 (j) when the following conditions appy1. The sponsoring organization has been requested to waive or reduce the attendance or registration fee for Government
participation;
2. The fee involved (actual or reduced) is not in excess of
$100.00; and
3. The duration of the meeting does not exceed five days.

-incurred, which would be processed on one voucher.)
(b) Travel expenses incurred in direct connection with training.
(c) Tuition, matriculation and other required fees incident
thereto.
(d) Such other direct expenses as may be necessary and as ap.proved by the Committee on Rules and Administration.

Committee on Rules and Administration.
The following stipulations shall obtain in respect to agreements on continued employment (section 202 (j) (3) ) :
1. Each request for approval of a training authorization of more than 15 days duration shall be accompanied a copy of the agreement specifying a continued employment after training period, as required by section 202(j) (3), signed by the employee; and
2. Each such agreement shall contain a warranty by said employee that a repayment of the training expenditure (excluding compensation) on a pro rata basis commensurate with the unexpired portion of the specified continuous employment period will be made by said employee should he leave the government service prior to the full discharge of his obligation under said agreement. The Committee on Rules and Administration shall be notified immediately of any instance of default.
(A sample form which may be used for such agreements on continued employment is included at the end of these regulations.)
The separation of an employee from a committee for a limited and specifiedd period for the purpose of training, but continuing that employee's benefits as specified by section 2 j) (4), shall also require advance approval of the ComT ittee on Rules and Administration.
committee desiring to provide assistance for the s I' ed training of one or more of its professional staff shall submit its request, in writing, to the Committee on Rules and Administration sufficiently in advance of the proposed training date to allow ample time for decision and reply. The requests shall contain complete explanatory details and comply strictly with the requirements of section 202(j) and these regulations.

Unlike other standing committees, the Appropriations Committee has a permanent authorization for funds for inquiries and investigations (S. Res. 193, 78th Cong., Oct. 14, 1943), which funds are provided by the annual legislative appropriation acts.
Information regarding amounts authorized for Senate committees for the employment of temporary personnel, and the payment of expenses for inquiries and investigations may be found in part II of this compilation, which follows on page 51.












REGULATION TO PROVIDE MORE EFFECTIVE CONTROL
OVER PAYMENTS MADE FROM CONTINGENT FUND OF
THE SENATE
(Adopted by the Committee on Rules and Administration on October 22, 1975)

Each activity authorized to make expenditures from the Contingent Fund of the Senate shall maintain an account of funds so authorized and expended, which account shall be reconciled at least semi-annually with the account maintained for such activity by the Senate Disbursing Office. Each reconciliation shall also include, an audit of any and all cash advances made to the respective activity under authority of Public Law 118, 81st Congress (2 U.S.C. 69).
The Financial Clerk is directed to report to the Committee. on Rules and Administration each time the accounts are reconciled and identify any exceptions arising from the account reconciliation or audit of cash advances.

PART II
FUNDS AUTHORIZED FOR SENATE COMMITTEES
83D CONGRESS, THROUGH 94TH CONGRESS, IST SESSION











NOTES ON THE TABLES
The tables which follow constitute a revision of the committee print entitled "Senate Inquiries and Investigations", which in its previous format listed amounts authorized for and expended by Senate committees for inquiries and investigations during the previous three Congresses. In this new format the statistics for expenditures have been dropped, and the space utilized to extend information concerning authorizations from the last 3 Congresses to the last 12 Congresses.
Scope of the compilation.-The following tables indicate all funds authorized by the Senate from the 83d Congress through the 94th Congress, 1st Session, for inquiries and investigations by Senate committees. Included are the annual and any supplemental expenditure authorizations for Senate standing, select, and special committees, and any joint committees or commissions authorized to make expenditures from the contingent fund of the Senate.
Fiscal year for Senate inquiries.-To provide time at the commencement of each new session of Congress for Senate committees to prepare their budgets for investigations and to have resolutions authorizing such investigations considered and approved by the Senate, the Committee on Rules and Administration has determined that the fiscal year for Senate inquiries shall overlap the calendar year. For many years that overlap was 1 month, and the fiscal year ran from February 1 through January 31 of the following year. During the first session of the 92d Congress the committee temporarily set the fiscal year at 13 months in order to increase the overlap to 2 months. Commencing with the second session of the 92d Congress the fiscal year thus became March 1 through the end of the succeeding February, which continues to be the fiscal year for the purpose.
Unless otherwise indicated by footnote, the authorizations shown in the tables which follow are for periods as expressed above.
Investigative funds.-For the purposes of this compilation the funds received by Senate committees for inquiries and investigations, generally on the fiscal-year basis described above, are termed "investigative funds." Such funds may be used by committees to hire additional personnel and to pay additional expenses incurred by the investigations.
Statutory funds.-In order to complete the picture, the tables include the statutory $10,000 per Congress granted each standing committee of the Senate pursuant to section 134 (a) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 (Aug. 21 1946) 60 Stat. 8312 832; 2 U.S. C. 190 (b)). Such funds and any increments thereto may be used by committees for the routine purposes specified in the act, but may not be used to employ additional personnel.
Select Committee on Small Business.-The Select Committee on Small Business is shown in a separate table in this compilation, since it has been granted the same statutory $10,000 per Congress authorized for standing committees (Public Law 759, 8 1st Cong.; Sept. 6, 1950, 64 Stat. 597) as well as the same permanent staff ,of six professional and six clerical assistants granted standing committees (Public Law 759, 8 Ist Cong.; Sept. 6, 19 50, 64 Stat. 595).
