ADMINISTRATION AND BUDGET OFFICER
Senator YARBOROUGH. The subcommittee will come to order. We will begin hearings on H.R. 16900, the bill making appropriations for the Treasury and Post Office Departments, the Executive Office of the President and certain agencies for fiscal year 1971. Gentlemen, we appreciate your being here. I regret the unavoidable events that delayed me this morning. We will bear that in mind as I cut down on the number of questions I ask, which will compensate for this lost time.
I apologize also to my efficient colleague, Senator Boggs. We have served on more than one committee together, and he is always efficient in the Senate and I envy him with the size of the population of his State.
Now, we will take up first the items contained in title I, Treasury Department. The budget estimates for fiscal 1971, for all agencies, under this title, total $1,252,551,000, an increase of $162,461,000 over fiscal 1970 appropriations enacted to date.
There are pending before Congress several 1970 supplemental items which, when enacted, will reduce the difference between the 1971 budget estimates and final 1970 appropriations. We do not know, at this time, what the exact difference will be between the two figures.
