Order Code RL32794 CRS Report for Congress Received through the CRS Web House Committee Funding Requests and Authorizations, 104th-109th Congresses Updated May 3, 2005 R. Eric Petersen Analyst in American National Government Government and Finance Division Congressional Research Service { The Library of Congress House Committee Funding Requests and Authorizations, 104th-109th Congresses Summary Under House Rule X, clause 6, each standing and select committee of the House (except the Appropriations Committee) is required to submit an operating budget request for its necessary expenses over the two years of a Congress. Each committee chair normally introduces a House resolution to provide his or her committee with the requisite funds for the two years of the Congress. Individual committee funding resolutions are referred to the House Administration Committee, which typically holds public hearings on each committee’s request. The chair of the House Administration Committee then typically introduces an omnibus funding resolution. The chairman’s resolution usually incorporates, without change, the amounts requested by each committee. The House normally acts on committee funding resolutions during the last week of March in the first year of a Congress. This report provides actual committee funding requests and authorizations for House committees in the 104th - 109th Congresses, and the same information, calculated in constant (January 2005) dollars for the 104th - 108th Congresses. Details of committee funding activity in the 109th Congress is discussed in CRS Report RL32793, House Committee Funding Legislation, 109th Congress, by R. Eric Petersen. Information on Senate committee funding is available in CRS Report RL32779, Senate Committee Funding Resolutions, 109th Congress, and Funding Authorizations 104th - 109th Congresses, by R. Eric Petersen. This report will be updated as events warrant. Contents House Committee Funding Process . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1 List of Tables Table 1.

The budgetary requests include estimated salary needs for staff, costs of consulting services, printing costs, office equipment and supply costs, and travel costs for committee members and staff. Some costs (such as pension and insurance contributions for committee employees) are not directly billed to the committee and are paid from other appropriated funds. Individual committee requests are then packaged by the House Administration Committee into an omnibus “primary expense resolution.” Clause 6(c) requires that “the minority party (be) treated fairly in the appointment” of committee staff employed pursuant to such expense resolutions. Prior to the 104th Congress, House rules provided a base level of 30 so-called “statutory” staff positions for all House standing committees (except the Appropriations Committee). Funds for these staff were provided through a line-item appropriation and were not included in the funding resolutions reported from the House Administration Committee. In the 104th Congress, House rules were changed (1) to provide for biennial committee funding resolutions, and (2) to include funding authorization for the baseline 30 staff positions in each committee’s funding authorization.1 Twenty of these staff positions are allotted to the committee majority and 10 to the committee minority. The House majority leadership has encouraged its committee leaders to move as quickly as possible to provide the minority with one-third of the remaining committee staff and resources authorized in the biennial funding resolutions. Statements made by leaders of the House Administration Committee at the beginning of its committee funding review for the 107th Congress, and reaffirmed at the beginning of the 108th Congress, indicate a general consensus that all House committees should provide at least one-third minority staffing this Congress. Each committee is encouraged to discuss its proposed budget and approve it at a committee organization meeting. Some committees, however, do not prepare or approve their draft budgets this way. Each committee chair normally introduces a House resolution to provide his or her committee with the requisite funds for the two years of the Congress. These individual resolutions are then referred to the House Administration Committee, which holds public hearings on each committee’s 1 As before, these provisions were not made applicable to the House Appropriations Committee. CRS-2 request. The chair and the ranking minority member from each committee normally testify at these hearings. The chair of the House Administration Committee then typically introduces an omnibus funding resolution, which, after its referral to the House Administration Committee, has served as the legislative vehicle for a full committee markup. The chairman’s resolution usually incorporates, without change, the amounts requested by each committee. The House normally acts on committee funding resolutions during the last week of March in the first year of a Congress. The committee funding resolution is normally called up as privileged business under the Rules of the House, allowing it to be called up and considered without the need for a special rule from the Rules Committee. Privileged funding resolutions are considered in the House under the one-hour rule and, typically, the majority party manager does not yield the floor to permit amendments to be offered. (The committee-reported amendment is automatically laid before the House.) At the end of one hour of debate, the majority party manager moves the previous question and, if agreed to, the House votes on final passage of the resolution. Before the vote on final passage, it has become customary for the minority party to offer a motion to recommit the funding resolution. This motion normally permits the minority to offer an alternative funding proposal and to obtain a House vote on it. Owing to the bipartisan consensus on the funding resolution in the past two Congresses, House Democrats did not offer such a motion in 2001 or 2003. Tables 1 through 6 provide committee funding requests and authorizations for House committees in the 104th-109th Congresses. Tables 7 through 11 provide the authorization levels, calculated in constant (January 2005) dollars, for the 104th 108th Congresses.2 2 Information on Senate committee funding is available in CRS Report RL32779, Senate Committee Funding Resolutions, 109th Congress, and Funding Authorizations 104th - 109th Congresses, by R.
