  Ms. McKINNEY changed her vote from ``aye'' to ``no.''
  Mr. McINTOSH changed his vote from ``no'' to ``aye.''
  So the amendment was rejected.
  The result of the vote was announced as above recorded.


                          personal explanation

  Ms. EDDIE BERNICE JOHNSON of Texas. Mr. Chairman, during rollcall 
vote No. 322 on H.R. 3756 I was unavoidably detained. Had I been 
present, I would have voted ``No.''
  Mr. GILMAN. Mr. Chairman, the fiscal year 1997 Treasury, Postal 
Service Appropriations bill, would have cut the critical personnel 
levels for the Office of National Drug Control Policy [ONDCP] by $2.2 
million, from the President's original staffing level request.
  While overall providing more monies than the administration 
originally requested for fighting drugs for ONDCP, the bill unwisely 
eliminated $2.2 million from ONDCP salaries. This would have forced the 
office to do without 25 critical full-time employees [FTE's] needed to 
coordinate our Nation's battle against drugs.
  The battle against drugs in recent years has not progressed as well 
as many of us in the Congress hoped for under the Clinton 
administration. This is particularly evident in the alarming, soaring 
drug use we have all witnessed since 1992, especially among our young 
people.
  The rise in drug abuse followed some Clinton administration initial 
efforts in 1993 to diminish the role of ONDCP in the government-wide 
struggle against drugs, and a very unwise cut of 80 percent of the 
staffing for ONDCP.
  I am pleased by Chairman Lightfoot's amendment to restore full 
funding for ONDCP staffing when a satisfactory staff plan is submitted, 
and I support that effort.
  We ought not deny the newest ONDCP Director, General Barry McCaffrey 
the full staffing he needs, requested, and that we have previously 
provided for his office.
  The ONDCP Director has, even without these limitations, an extremely 
difficult enough job of formulating and executing the battle against 
drugs at home, which are today destroying our communities, schools, and 
our youth.
  It is gratifying that the fiscal year 1997 appropriations bill for 
the Treasury and Postal Services will now guarantee full funding for 
ONDCP staffing.
  I complement Chairman Lightfoot's efforts and that of his Committee 
to restore full staffing for ONDCP.

                              {time}  1600

  The CHAIRMAN. Under the rule, the Committee rises.
  Accordingly the Committee rose; and the Speaker pro tempore (Mr. 
LaHood) having assumed the chair, Mr. Dreier, Chairman of the Committee 
of the Whole House on the State of the Union, reported that that 
Committee, having had under consideration the bill (H.R. 3756) making 
appropriations for the Treasury Department, the U.S. Postal Service, 
the Executive Office of the President, and certain independent 
agencies, for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1997, and for other 
purposes, pursuant to House Resolution 475, he reported the bill back 
to the House with sundry amendments adopted by the Committee of the 
Whole.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Under the rule, the previous question is 
ordered.
  Is a separate vote demanded on any amendment? If not, the Chair will 
then put them en gros.
  The amendments were agreed to.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on engrossment and third 
reading of the bill.
  The bill was ordered to be engrossed and read a third time, and was 
read the third time.


                motion to recommit offered by mr. hoyer

  Mr. HOYER. Mr. Speaker, I offer a motion to recommit.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is the gentleman opposed to the bill?
  Mr. HOYER. I am, Mr. Chairman.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The clerk will report the motion to 
recommit.
  The Clerk read as follows:

       Mr. Hoyer moves to recommit the bill, H.R. 3756, to the 
     Committee on Appropriations.

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Without objection, the previous question is 
ordered on the motion to recommit.
  There was no objection.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on the motion to recommit.
  The motion to recommit was rejected.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on the passage of the bill.
  Pursuant to clause 7, rule XV, the yeas and nays are ordered.
