PREFACE


This revised committee print consists of two parts. Part I provides
Senate committees with accurate and specific information on the statu-
tory requirements for expenditure authorizations as they will apply
at the commencement of the second session of the Ninety-fifth Con-
gress. Included are sample re.-,lutions and budget forms, regulations
in respect to procurement of consultants and the training of profes-
sional staff members, and rates of compensation for staffs of Senate
committees which, pursuant to the Order of the President pro tem-
pore of September 29. 1977. were effective as of October 1. 1977.
Part II lists all funds authorized by the Senate from the 83d Con-
gre:, through the first session of the 95th Congiress for inquiries and
inve-tigations by Senate committees. Included are the annual and
any supplemental expenditure authlorizations for Senate standing,
select, and special committees, aind any joint committees or commis-
sions authorized to make expenditures from the contingent fund of
the Senate.
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 per-
sonnel who will be involved with the procedure:
Fiscal year.-The fiscal year for expenditure authorizations will
be the 12-month period from March 1. 1978. through February 28,
1979.
Sub mission date.-All annual expenditure-authorization resolutions
for 1978 must be reported to the Senate not later than January 31,
1978.
Sngle- funding foo.rat.-Ipon the recommendation of the Tempo-
rary Select Committee To Study the Senate Committee System, the
Committee on Rules and Administration has adopted a policy whereby
each Senate committee requesting funds for 19718 iln exces of statu-
tory authorizations shliall report a s;igle fud;igq "inquiries and in-
vestiogations" resolution to authorize the total funding for the com-
mittee and its subcommittees. Accordingly, each committee shliall sub-
mit o0ly one budget with supporting materials to the Rules Commit-
tee for its consideration.
Consultants mand training.-Any committee desiring authority and
funds to hire consultants or to train its professional staff must include
appropriate language therefore in its annual resolution. In respect to
consultants for a committee, it should be duly noted that the selection
of the same must be done jointly by the chairman and the ranking
minority 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 Com-
(ITI)







mittee offices; (2) an original and 30 duplicate copies 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 comm it tee.
Supplemental expenditure resolutions.-While not pertinent at this
time, it is important for committees which may eventually seek supple-
mental funds to be aware of and to comply with the statutory provi-
sion 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. 11.)
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 joint committees.-In respect to select and spe-
cial 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 chairmen that their
budgets and supporting materials should be submitted 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 in
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.
H-owAm W. CANNON,
Chairman, Committee on Rules and Administration.

ANNUAL EXPENDITURE AUTHORIZATIONS


Standing committees of the Senate requiring funds in addition to
the $10,000 per Congress authorized for each such committee by sec-
tion 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 expenditure-
authorization resolution, and that the one resolution contain a specifi-
cation of the amounts sought for each of the committee's subcommit-
tees. 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 resolu-
tions is as follows:
SECTIo.N 133 (g) OF THE LEGISLATIVE REORGANIZATION ACT
or 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 authori-
zation 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 specifica-
tion 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 ma-
jority of the members of such committee have been desig-
nated during that session. * 1

'As added, See. 110(a) of Pub. Law 91-510, 84 Star. 1149, Oct. 26, 1970.

Fiscal Year for Expenditure Authorizations
The fiscal year for expenditure authorizations for inquiries and in-
vestigations runs from March 1 through February 28 (29) of the suc-
ceeding year. This 12-month period, with 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 desig-
nation of the members of standing committees occurs later than Jan-
uary 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 the .samiple resolution forms reproduced at the end of this
chapter.
Resolution Form 1.-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 corunsltants and
training. (See page 7.)
Resolution Form 2.-This form is intended for use by a committee
desiring funding for inquiries and investigations, with or without
funds for consultants or training. (See page 8.)
Provision for Consultants and Staff Training
Committees anticipating the need for consultants or considering
training for certain of their 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 accom-
modate 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 re-
quired to submit to the Committee on Rules and Administration ac-
companying budgets together with supporting materials, in the form
of letters or memorandums. All submissions should be in the form of
an original and thirty duplicate copies.






Budgets.-The budgets should be prepared on standardized budget
forms obtainable from the Rules Committee offices. Several changes
have been made in the form to be used this year.
Supporting materials.-It is suggested by the Committee on Rules
and Administration that, when feasible, supporting letters or memo-
randums be signed jointly by the chairman and ranking minority
member of requesting committees.

Provisions 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 Reorganization Act of 1970,
eliminates the need for the continuance in such resolutions of the so-
called "minority clause", which had been employed for several years.
Section 703(e) of Senate Resolution 4, 95th Congress, agreed to
Fel)ruarv 4, 1977, provides that the staffs of committees should reflect
the relative number of majority and minority members; that on request
of the minority members, one-third of the funds be allocated to the
minority members for coml)ensatiom of minority staff: and that a pro-
portionate share of space, facilities, and equipment shall be provi(led
the minority staff. Funds which the chairman and ranking minority
member agree are for the administrative and clerical functions of the
committee as a whole are not subject to the allocation. Adjustment of
committees' budgets to reflect the allocation of funds to the minority
is to be completed within four years of the request of the minority
members. One-half of the adjustment is to be made in the first two
years.
The text of section 703(e) of Senate Resolution 4 is as follows:

SECTION 703 (e) OF SENATE RESOLUTION 4, 95Ti CONGRESS,
AGREED TO FEBRUARY 4, 1977
(e) The staffs of committees (including statutory, investi-
gative, and clerical personnel) should reflect the relative num-
ber of majority and minority members of committees, taking
into full consideration employees appointed under section
705.1 A majority of the minority members of any committee
may, by resolution, request that at least one-third of the funds
of the committee for statutory, investigative, and clerical per-
sonnel (other than those funds determined by the chairman
and ranking minority member to be allocated for the adminis-
trative and clerical functions of the committee as a whole) be
allocated to the minority members of such committee for
1 Sec. 705 of S. Res. 4, 95th Cong., agreed to Feb. 4,1977, was suspended
by sec. 106 of the Supplemental Appropriations Act, 1977 (Pub. Law 95-
26, 91 Stat. 83-85, May 4, 1977), and was repealed by sec. 111 of the Legis-
lative Branch Appropriation Act, 1978 (Pub. Law 95-94, 91 Stat. 663,
Au.i. 5, 1977). (See page 42.)

compensation of minority staff as the minority members may
decide. The committee shall thereafter adjust its budget to
comply with such resolution. Such adjustment shall be equit-
ably made over a four-year period, commencing July 1, 1977,
with not less than one-half being made in two years. Upon
request by a majority of the minority members of any commit-
tee by resolution, proportionate space, equipment, and facili-
ties shall be provided for such minority staff.

SUPPLEMENTAL EXPENDITURE AUTHORIZATIONS


Any standing committees of the Senate requiring funds in addition
to those authorized in their annual expenditure-authorization resolu-
tions may request such additional funds pursuant to the procedure
set forth in section 133(g) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of
1946. Essentially, a supplemental expenditure authorization must be
in the form of a resolution amending an annual expenditure-authori-
zation resolution (unless the committee has no such annual resolution),
and must be accompanied by a report stating why the funds now
sought were not included in the committee's annual request.

Statutory Authority
That portion of section 133(g) which relates to supplemental ex-
penditure authorizations is as follows:

SECTION 133(g) OF THIE LEGISLtTIVE REORGA-NIZATION ACT
OF 1946
(2 U.S.C. 190a)
(g) * After the date on which an annual authoriza-
tion resolution has been offered by any such committee in any
year, or the last d(late on which such committee )pursuant to
the preceding sentence may offer such a resolution, which-
ever date occurs earlier, such committee in any year may
procure authorization for the expenditure of funds in excess
of the amount specified by section 134(a) of this Act only by
offering a supplemental authorization resolution. Each such
supplemental authorization resolution shall include a speci-
fication of the amount of all supplemental funds sought by
that committee for expenditure by all subcommittees thereof
under such resolution and the amounts so sought for each
such subcommittee. Each such supplemental authorization
resolution shall amend the annual authorization resolution of
such committee for that year unless the committee offered no
annual authorization resolution for that year, in which case
the committee's supplemental authorization resolution shall
not be an amendment to any other resolution and any subse-
quent supplemental authorization resolution of such com-
mittee for the same year shall amend the first such resolution
offered by the committee for that year. Each such supple-
mental resolution reported by such committee shall be accom-


(11)

panied by a report to the Senate specifying with particularity
the purpose for which such authorization is sought and the
reason why such authorization could not have been sought at
the time of, or within the period provided for, the submission
by such committee of an annual authorization resolution for
that year.1 * *

1As added, Sec. 110(a) of Pub. Law 91-510, 84 Stat. 1149. Oct. 26,
1970; and amended, Sec. 3(a) of Pub. Law 92-136, 85 Stat. 377, Oct. 11,
1971.
Accompanying Report Required
Senate committees intending to offer supplemental expenditure-
authorization resolutions should note carefully that they must comply
with the following requirements stipulated in section 133(g) :
(1) Eacli supplemental resolution reported by a committee must be
accompanied by a report to the Senate; and
(2) Each such report must specify with particularity the purpose
for which the authorization is sought, and the reason it was not sought
in the committee's annual authorization resolution.

Format of Supplemental Resolutions
In the composition of supplemental resolutions, Senate standing
committees are requested to follow, with any necessary modifications,
one or the other of the three sample resolution forms (Resolution
Forms 3, 4, and 5) which follow:

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

Section 134(a) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 au-
thorizes each standing committee of the Senate to expend not to ex-
ceed $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 TIE LEGISLATIVE REORGANIZATION ACT OF
1946
(2 U.S.C. 190b)
SEC. 134. (a) Each standing committee 1 of the Senate, in-
cluding any subcommittee of any such committee, is authori-
ized to hold such hearings, to sit and act at such times and
places during the sessions, recesses, and adjourned periods
of the Senate, to require by subpoena or otherwise the attend-
ance of such witnesses and the production of such corre-
spondence, books, papers, and documents, to take such testi-
mony and to make such expenditures (not in excess of $10,000
for each committee during any Congress) as it deems advis-
able. 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 ex-
penses of the committee shall be paid from the contingent
fund of the Senate upon vouchers approved by the chairman.
'The provisions of 134(a) were made applicable to the Select Com-
mittee on Small Business by Pub. Law 759 of the 81st Cong. (64 Stat.
597, Sept. 6, 1950).
Compensation for stenographic assistance is now set by the Com-
mittee 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 (g) of the Legislative Reorganiza-
tion Act of 1946 (by section 108 (a) of the 1970 Act), which limited
any additional funds obtainable by Senate committees to annual ex-
penditure 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 Administra-
tion was required to report out any requests (it approved) for funds
in addition to the statutory $10,000 per Congress in the form of sup-
plemental expenditure-authorization resolutions.
(17)





18


Since that temporary expedient was obviously unacceptable for
continued use, the Committee on Rules and Administration recom-
mended 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 THE LEGISLATIVE REORGANIZATION ACT
OF 1946
(2 U.S.C. 190a)
(g) * This subsection shall not apply to any resolu-
tion 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.1

SAs added, Sec. 3(b) of Pub. Law 92-136, 85 Stat 377T, Oct. 11, 1971.
Accordingly, requests by standing committees for funds increment-
ing 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 orga-
nizations thereof are set forth in section 202(i) of the Legislative Re-
organization Act of 1946, the text of which is as follows:
SECTION 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 Com-
mittee on Rules and Administration in the case of standing
committees of the Senate, or the Committee on House Admin-
istration 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 re-
spective Houses, to procure the temporary services (not in
excess of one year) or intermittent services of individual con-
sultants, or organizations thereof, to make studies or advise
the committee with respect to any matter within its juris-
diction.
(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 com-
pensation not in excess of the per diem equivalent to the high-
est gross rate of compensation which may be paid to a regular
employee of the committee. Such contracts shall not be sub-
ject to the provisions of section 3709 of the Revised Statutes
(41 U.S.C. 5) or any other provision of law requiring adver-
tising.
(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,
acting jointly. With respect to the standing committees of the
House of Representatives, the standing committee concerned
(21)





9.')

shall select any such consultant or organization. The commit-
tee shall submit to the Committee on Rules and Administra-
tion 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 serv-
ices are procured pursuant to this subsection, including orga-
nizations, and such information shall be retained by that com-
mittee and shall be made available for public inspection upon
request.1
SAs 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" shall 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 individ-
ual consultants or of organizations thereof must first seek and obtain
the required authority therefore by including within its annual or sup-
plemental 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 un-
expended 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
merer)(1 of the full committee.
Rules Committee Responsibility
Section 202(i) also requires (1) that Senate committees desiring toc
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 con-
tractor; and (2) that such information be retained by the Committee-
on Rules and Administration and made available for public inspection.,
upon request.





23


To assist the Committee on Rules and Administration in considering
requests for consultants, letters from committees should equate (1) the
proposed consultant's particular qualifications with the specialized
area the committees plan to explore. (2) the probable time period tihe
consultant's services will be required, (3) the correlation between the
proposed consultant's qualifications and the specific committee activity,
and (4) the per day consultant fee proposed to be paid.
Methods of Procurement
Any Senate committee possessing the required authority therefore
may procure the services of consultants-
(1) by appointing individual consultants as temporary com-
mittee employees (at daily rates of compensation not exceeding
the highest 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 con-
tract), or
(b) between the full committee and organizations of
consultants.

Appointment of Individual Consultants
The notification of the committee's intention to appoint an indi-
vidual consultant to its staff and the information concerning tlhe
qualifications of the proposed consultant must be received by the
Committee on Rules and Administration five days in advance of the
appointment date. If during that period the requesting committee
receives no notice of disapproval from the Rules Committee, the ap-
pointment shall be deemed approved.
Requests to the Committee on Rules and Administration for such
approval may be expressed as in the following sample letter:
Honorable
Chairman, Committee on Rules and Administration,
Room 305, Rus-ell Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C.
20510
Dear Mr. Chairman:
In conformity with section 202(i) of the Legislative Re-
organization Act of 1946, as amended, and your regulations
pursuant thereto, we are notifying you herewith of the in-
tention of the Committee on to appoint
as a consultant, effective
and enclose the required informa-
tion in respect to his/her qualifications.





24


[Include data requested in section entitled "Rules Com-
mittee Responsibility", pp. 22-23 of this compilation.]
This appointment is made under the authority of S. Res.
(Section No. --), agreed to .....

Sincerely yours,

Chairman.

Ranking Minority Member.

A copy of such letter should be addressed to the Financial Clerk of
the Senate for his information at the same time the request is sub-
mitted to the Committee on Rules and Administration.
Procurement of Consultants by Contract
Information concerning the qualifications of individual consultants
or organizations thereof intended to be engaged by contract must
likewise be supplied to the Committee on Rules and Administration,
and should be submitted at the same time the contract itself is sent
for approval.
Letters from committees requesting the Committee on Rules and
Administration consideration of contracts should (1) be signed jointly
by the chairman and ranking minority member; (2) outline the pur-
pose of the contract, the dollar amount, the term of the contract, and
the name of the contracting party; (3) be accompanied by the original
and three copies of the contract signed jointly by the chairman and
ranking minority member; and (4) include the background data sup-
porting the contractor's qualifications.
The contract itself should set forth in full the obligations of the con-
tractor and, where appropriate, incorporate by reference the con-
tractor's detailed proposal.
Contracts (and consultants' qualifications) should be received suf-
ficiently in advance of the contracts' effective date to permit appropri-
ate consideration at a regular meeting of the full Committee on Rules
and Administration. When contracts are approved, notice thereof
will be given in writing, pursuant to the established practice. Approval
of a contract will be deemed to include approval of a consultant's
qualifications.
Sample Contracts
The following samples of a fixed-fee product contract1 and a service
contract 2 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.
All moneys shall be chargeable to the authorizing resolution in effect on the
date the contract was approved.
"All moneys shall be charged to funds available on the date services are
rendered.

TRAINING OF PROFESSIONAL STAFF


Statutory Authority
Authority for the training of professional staff personnel of stand-
ing committees of the Senate is contained in section 202(j) of the
Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946. The text of section 202(j) is
as follows:
SECTION 202 (j) OF THE LEGISLATIVE 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 stand-
ing 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 respec-
tive Houses pursuant to resolutions, which shall specify the
maximum amounts which may be used for such purposes, ap-
proved 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 re-
sponsibilities. Any joint committee of the Congress whose
expenses 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 Com-
mittee 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 sub-
section for members of its staff in obtaining such training,
any part of amounts appropriated to that committee.1
(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
as may be approved by the Committee on Rules and Admin-
istration or the Committee on House Administration, as the
case may be.
As added, Sec. 5(b) of Pub. Law 92-136, 86 Stat 378, Oct. 11, 1971.
(27)





28


(3) A committee providing assistance under this subsec-
tion shall obtain from any employee receiving such assist-
ance 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 the rate of com-
pensation 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 retire-
ment) 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
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
following observations:
(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 supple-
mental 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 train-
ing 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 92-136 (85 Stat. 378, Oct. 11, 1971) has extended the same
privilege to joint committees, to the Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee, and to the Senate Majority and Minority Policy Committees.





29


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

Regulations Governing Training of Professional Staff Personnel
of Senate Committees
(Adopted by the Committee on Rules and Administration
on October 20,1971)
Section 202(j) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946, as
amended by section 304 of Public Law 91-510, approved October 26,
1970, provides for the expenditure of funds available to standing com-
mittees of the Senate for the specialized training of professional staff
personnel under certain conditions enumerated therein, including the
approval of the Committee on Rules and Administration.
The Committee on Rules and Administration has determined that
attuidance at conferences, seminars, or briefings by authorized pro-
fessional staff personnel will not be considered as training under the
statutory provisions of section 202(j) when the following conditions
apply:
1. 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; and
3. The duration of the meeting does not exceed five days.
When all three of the above limitations are met, fees and travel-
ing expenses involved may be incurred by authorized standing com-
mittees without specific advance approval of the Committee on Rules
and Adminliisti action. A fee or time duration for meeting-s in excess of
the aforeiiientioned must be approved in advance by tKe Committee
on Rules and Adiiiiistration at which time that Committee will
determine the classification of the proposed charges as either "train-
ing'" which requires compliance with all of the provisions of section
202 (j), or "non-training".
Under the authority granted to it to supervise staff training, the
Committee on Rules and Administration has adopted the following
definitions:
1. Traiim ng
Training means the process of providing for and making available
to an employee, and placing or enrolling the employee in, a planned,
prepared, and coordinated program, course, curriculum, subject, sys-
tem. or routine of instruction or education, in scientific, professional,
or technical fields which are or will be directly related to the per-





30


formance by the employee o of Oficial duties for the Senate, in order
to increase the knowledge, proficiency, ability, skill, and qualifications
of the employee in the performance of official duties.
2. Training Expenses
The following will be considered as "Training Expenses":
(a) Compensation paid an employee during training periods
in excess of 15 days. (Excludes the compensation cost involved in
seminar attendance within the two-week range. In these cases, the
training expense would be the fees involved and travel expenses
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.
(e) Fund grants, in lieu of actual expenses, as approved by the
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 by a copy of the agree-
ment specifying a continued employment after training period, as re-
quired by section 202(]) (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 compensa-
tion) 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 in-
stance of default.
(A sample form which may be used for such agreements on con-
tinued employment is included at the end of these regulations.)
The separation of an employee from a committee for a limited and
specified period for the purpose of training, but continuing that em-
ployee's benefits as specified by section 202(])(4), shall also require
advance approval of the Committee on Rules and Administration.
A committee desiring to provide assistance for the specialized train-
ing 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 de-
cision and reply. The requests shall contain complete explanatory de-
tails and comply strictly with the requirements of section 202(j) and
these regulations.








AGREEMENT ON CONTINUED EMPLOYMENT
This agreement is made and executed this day of 19-
in Washington, D.C., between the Committee on
of the United States Senate (hereafter referred to as the "Committee") and
S(hereafter referred to as the "Employee"). The Commit-
tee and the Employee mutually agree as follows:
1. The Committee agrees to pay the following expenses of the Employee related
to training received by him while enrolled in

at during the period from through

(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
(5)
2. The Employee agrees to continue in the employment of the Committee for
a period of commencing after the Employee completes his training
referred to in paragraph 1 of this agreement, unless such employment is termi-
nated prior to the end of such period as a result of (1) the death of the Em-
ployee, (2) disability of the Employee, (3) the desire of the Committee to termi-
nate the employment of the Employee, or (4) the consent of the Committee to
the appointment of the Employee to another position in the United States
Government.
3. The Employee agrees that, if he is separated from employment with the
Committee for any reason other than one of the reasons specified in paragraph 2
of this agreement, and such separation occurs prior to the expiration of a period
of continuous employment equal in duration to the period specified in paragraph
2, he will make repayment to the United States Government of those training
expenses referred to in paragraph 1 (other than compensation) on a pro rata
basis commensurate with the portion of such period remaining to be served by
the Employee at the time of such separation. For the purposes of this para-
graph, employment with the Committee includes employment with any other
department, agency, or establishment of the United States Government with the
consent of the Committee.
4. The Committee and the Employee agree that this agreement shall have no
effect unless the training expenses referred to in paragraph 1 are approved
by the Committee on Rules and Administration of the Senate.
Witness our hands the day and year first written above.

temporary committee employees are authorized as the consequence of
Senate approval of annual or supplemental expenditure authorization





43

resolutions providing its committees with additional funds for inquiries
and investigations. Such funds are used by the committees not only
to hire personnel but to meet other operating expenses as well.
Unlike other standing committees, the Appropriations Committee
has a permanent authorization for funds for inquiries and investiga-
tions (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 49.

PART II
FUNDS AUTHORIZED FOR SENATE COMMITTEES
83D CONGRESS THROUGH 95TH CONGRESS, 1ST SESSION












NOTES ON THIE TABLES


Scope of the compilation.-The following tables indicate all funds authorized by
the Senate from the 83d Congress through the first session of the 95th Congress
for inquiries and investigations by Senate comminittees. Included are the annual
and any supplemental expenditure authorizations for Senate standing, select,
and shial committees, and any joint commniittee.-, or commissions authorized to
make expenditures from the contingent fund of the Senate.
Fiscal y ?ar for Senate inrqiiries.-To provide time at the commencement of each
new session of Congr:ss for Senate committee-s to prepare their budgets for in-
ves-tigations rind 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 Fel. riv a.ry, which continues to be the fiscal year for t he purpose.
Unless otherwise indicated by footnote, the authorizations shown in the tables
which follow are for )periods as expressed above.
Ii'ut.ligativefuintd.-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.
Sft','.'Sry f,;o.'ds.-In order to compn,!te the picture, the tables include the
statutory $10,000 per Congress granted each standing committee of the Senate
pursuant to section 1.4(a) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 (Aug.
2, 1946, GO St'tt. 831, 832; 2 U.S..C. 190(b)). Such funds and any increments thereto
may I,( used by commit tos for the routine purposes spcif tied in the act, but may
not be used to ployly .Idi tonal personnel.
Select Commidli.c on ';tall Butsi,_ss.-The Select Committee on Small Business
is show. n in a scm Irt.rte table in this compilation, since it has been granted the same
statutorir $10,000 per Congress authorized fo-r standing committees (Public Law
759, 81st Cong.; Sept. 6, 1950, 64 Stat. 597) as well as the same permanent staff
of six ,:*oessional and :ix clerical assistants granted standing committees (Public
Law 759, 81st Cong.; Sept. u, 1950, 64 Stat. 595).
