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 paid from other appropriated funds, and are excluded from committee budgets. Some committees discuss and approve their proposed budgets at committee organization meetings. Some committees do not prepare or approve their draft budgets this way. Committee chairs normally introduce House resolutions to provide their committees 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 request. The chair and the ranking minority member from each committee normally testify at these hearings.2 The chair of the House Administration Committee then typically introduces an omnibus funding resolution, which, after its referral to the House Administration Committee, typically serves as the legislative vehicle for a full committee markup. Since 1995, the committee funding resolution has been considered by the House (1) as a privileged matter,3 (2) subject to an order adopted by the House by unanimous consent,4 (3) under suspension of the rules,5 or (4) by rule from the Rules Committee.6 Each approach to authorizing consideration has provided one hour of debate, equally divided between the majority and minority. At the end of the debate, the majority party manager moves the previous question and, if agreed to, the House votes on final passage of the resolution. Due to bipartisan consensus on committee funding resolutions, the House minority has not offered a motion to recommit7 since the 106th Congress. Tables 1 through 7 provide committee funding requests and authorizations in nominal dollars for House committees in the 104th-110th Congresses. Tables 8 through 13 provide the authorization levels, calculated in constant (January 2007) dollars, for the 104th-109th Congresses. Information 1 P.L. 79-601, Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946, Section 202(b), 60 Stat. 834, grants the Committee on Appropriations authorization to appropriate funds for its own activities. 2 See, e.g., U.S. House, Committee on House Administration, Hearing on Committee Funding Requests, 108th Cong. 1st sess.
