Senate Committee Expenditures Resolutions, 110th Congress, and Funding Authorizations, 104th - 110th Congresses

Order Code RL33905 Senate Committee Expenditures Resolutions, 110th Congress, and Funding Authorizations, 104th - 110th Congresses March 7, 2007 R. Eric Petersen Analyst in American National Government Government and Finance Division Senate Committee Expenditures Resolutions, 110th Congress, and Funding Authorizations, 104th - 110th Congresses Summary All standing and select committees of the Senate, except for the Appropriations and Ethics Committees, obtain their operating budgets pursuant to a biennial committee funding resolution. On March 1, 2007, the Senate adopted by unanimous consent S.Res. 89, authorizing expenditures by committees of the Senate for the period March 1, 2007, through February 28, 2009. On February 14, 2007, the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration held a hearing on Senate committee expense resolutions. Under a year-long continuing resolution setting Senate expenditures for FY2007, committee spending levels were generally set at FY2006 levels plus a small increase to provide cost of living adjustments (COLA) to staff salaries. Most Senate committees submitted requests that fell within guidelines established by the Committee on Rules and Administration that would allow the panel to mark up and report a resolution that fell within the limitations of available resources for Senate committee activity. The panel heard statements from the chairman and ranking member of the Select Committee on Intelligence, and the ranking members of the Committees on Foreign Relations and Finance, whose budget requests were higher than the established guidelines. Each Senator offered a statement in support of their larger budgets due to anticipated increases in workloads for their panels in the next two years. Areas accounting for the increases included increased oversight, expansion of other committee activities, or the need to add or retain appropriately qualified staff. On January 12, 2007, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell signed a joint leadership letter stating that committee budgets would be apportioned to reflect the membership ratio of the Senate, with up to an additional 10% to be allocated to committee chairs for administrative expenses, as determined by the Rules Committee. The joint leadership letter noted that no committee budget may be allocated to reduce the Republican staff salary baseline below that of FY2006, if that money is available. The Senate Committee on Rules and Administration has jurisdiction over committee funding resolutions and issues regulations governing committee funding and staff. Committee funding and staff are also regulated by Senate rules, as well as by statute. The funds authorized by resolution are appropriated in legislative branch appropriations acts. This report, which will be updated as events warrant, provides committee funding requests and authorizations for Senate committees in the 104th-110th Congresses.

On March 1, 2007, the Senate adopted by unanimous consent S.Res. 89, authorizing expenditures by committees of the Senate for the periods March 1, 2007, through September 30, 2007; October 1, 2007, through September 30, 2008; and October 1, 2008, through February 28, 2009. On February 14, 2007, the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration held a hearing on Senate committee expense resolutions. Senator Dianne Feinstein, who chairs the panel, noted that under a year-long continuing resolution setting Senate expenditures, FY2007 spending levels were generally set at FY2006 levels plus a small increase to provide cost of living adjustments (COLA) to staff salaries. The chairwoman noted that for committee expenses, the panel expected to mark up and report a resolution setting committee expense levels through February 28, 2009, at 100% of FY2006-authorized levels for FY2007-FY2009, plus a COLA payable in January of calendar years 2007-2009. Senator Feinstein noted that in preparing their biennial funding requests, all but three Senate committees submitted requests that fell within guidelines established by the Committee on Rules and Administration that would allow the panel to mark up and report a resolution that fell within the limitations of available resources for Senate committee activity.1 The committee then heard statements from the chairman and ranking member of the Select Committee on Intelligence, and the ranking members of the Committees on Foreign Relations and Finance. The budget requests of those panels were higher than the guidelines established by the Rules and Administration Committee. Each Senator offered a statement in support of their larger budgets due to anticipated increases in workloads for their panels in the next two years. Areas accounting for the increases included increased oversight, expansion of other committee activities, or the need to add or retain appropriately qualified staff. When the Committee on Rules and Administration met on February 28 to mark up and report a funding resolution, the additional funding requests made by the three panels were not 1 Oral comments of Senator Dianne Feinstein at the hearing of the Committee on Rules and Administration on committee funding, Feb. 14, 2007. CRS-2 included. Senator Feinstein indicated that requests for additional funds could be met through a reserve fund or legislative branch appropriations, if sufficient funds were available.2 On January 12, 2007, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell signed a joint leadership letter stating that committee budgets, including joint and special committees, would be apportioned to reflect the membership ratio of the Senate, with up to an additional 10% to be allocated to committee chairs for administrative expenses, as determined “by the Rules Committee, with the total administrative expenses allocation for all Committees not to exceed historic levels.” Additional administrative expenses are to be expended by a committee chair after consultation with the committee’s ranking member. The joint leadership letter noted that funds for committee expenses are to be “available to chairs consistent with the Senate rules and practices of the 109th Congress,” and that “no committee budget may be allocated to reduce the Republican staff salary baseline below that of fiscal year 2006, if that money is available.”3 Table 1 provides Senate committee funding requests and authorizations for Senate committees in the 110th Congress. Senate Committee Funding Rules The Senate biennial committee funding process applies to all Senate committees except Appropriations4 and Ethics,5 which have permanent authorizations for their staff and operating expenses. The Senate Committee on Rules and Administration has jurisdiction over committee funding resolutions and issues regulations governing committee funding and staff. Committee funding and staff are also regulated by Senate rules, especially Rule XXVI, paragraph 9, and Rule XXVII, as well as by statute. The funds authorized and allocated by resolution are appropriated in legislative branch appropriations acts. Under Senate Rule XXVI, clause 9, each Senate committee (except Appropriations and Ethics) is required to report a funding resolution providing for its expenses for March 1 of that year through February 28 of the following year by January 31 of the first session in which a new Congress convenes. The rule also allows the Committee on Rules and Administration to mandate a process by which funds may be authorized for a two-year period. The Senate took several steps in 1999 to move to a biennial funding process that more clearly reflects a fiscal year 2 Oral comments of Senator Dianne Feinstein at the Committee on Rules and Administration markup on committee funding, Feb. 28, 2007. 3 “Joint Leadership Agreement on Committee Funding,” Congressional Record, daily edition, Jan 12, 2007, p.

In the funding resolution agreed to in at the beginning of each subsequent Congress, the aggregate authorization for each committee is apportioned among three calendar periods — from March 1 to September 30 of the first year of a Congress, from October 1 to September 30 of the following year, and from October 1 to the following February 28. This permits the Senate to identify more precisely the amounts authorized for each fiscal year and the subsequent appropriations required. Each committee supports its request by submitting supplementary materials, including those specified by the Rules and Administration Committee. In recent Congresses, that panel has advised committees on the permissible increase, or required decreases, it hopes to impose on Senate committees, compared to the funding level in the previous Congress. Committees requesting funds in excess of these guidelines have been asked to include a justification in their budget submissions.6 The Rules and Administration Committee may then hold hearings at which committee chairs, ranking minority members, and other Senators may testify. In recent congresses, however, the committee has held hearings only on certain requests, or has not held hearings. The Rules and Administration Committee chair will normally introduce an omnibus resolution incorporating the amounts requested by each of the Senate committees in their individual resolutions. The Rules and Administration Committee will then usually meet to mark up the resolution and, after final approval by the committee, report it to the Senate and issue an accompanying written report. On occasions where both parties have been in agreement on the funding resolution, it has been discharged by unanimous consent from the committee without a formal markup or written report. In the 105th-109th Congresses, the Senate has agreed to the funding resolution by unanimous consent with little, if any, floor discussion. If a committee requires additional funds after the omnibus resolution has been agreed to, funds may be requested essentially in the same way as they were for its two-year budget. The Senate has minimized the need for supplemental funding, however, by allowing committees to use unspent funds from one period specified in the omnibus resolution during the next funding period. Since the 106th Congress, the omnibus funding resolution has also contained a special reserve from which unexpected funding needs by any Senate committee could be met, upon the request of its chair and ranking member, and the approval of the chair and ranking member of the Rules and Administration Committee. Senate Rule XXVII requires that each committee’s staff reflect the ratio of majority and minority committee members and that the minority receive “fair consideration” in the appointment of staff. A majority of the minority party members of a committee may request at least one-third of the personnel funds for hiring minority staff. This ratio is calculated after excluding funds for staff who perform administrative and clerical functions for the committee as a whole, if any, as agreed to by the chair and ranking minority member. Committee staff may be supplemented 6 The guidelines the Committee on Rules and Administration provides to other Senate committees are not publicly available.
