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 CHA then typically introduces an omnibus funding resolution, which, after its referral to the CHA, typically serves as the legislative vehicle for a full committee markup. The measure is then considered by the House. Table 1 through Table 9 provide committee funding requests and primary expense resolution authorizations in nominal dollars for House committees in the 104th-112th Congresses. Table 10 through Table 17 provide the authorization levels, calculated in constant (January 2011) dollars, for the 104th-111th Congresses. 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.
