                           GENERAL STATEMENT

                District of Columbia Financial Condition

    In the face of a worsening fiscal situation in the District 
of Columbia over the course of 1994 and early 1995, Congress 
enacted and the President approved Public Law 104-8, the 
District of Columbia Financial Responsibility and Management 
Assistance Act of 1995. That act was designed to restore fiscal 
integrity, balance, and financial health within the District of 
Columbia.
    These are not small tasks. The District of Columbia had 
lost access to private capital markets, had squandered long-
term financing on operating costs, and had papered over 
numerous fiscal problems. Many of its residents had cast 
judgment on deteriorating services by moving from the District, 
thereby contributing to a shrinking tax base. With Federal 
retrenchment, property values declined as well.
    Public Law 104-8 was an attempt by Congress to reverse 
course. It established a strong and independent chief financial 
officer and a five-member District of Columbia Financial 
Responsibility and Management Assistance Authority. The 
authority consists of distinguished local citizens who are 
charged with working with local government to rectify the 
District of Columbia's financial and fiscal problems. In June 
1995, two-thirds of the way through fiscal year 1995, the 
President appointed the members and the authority's work began. 
Within 45 days its first report was issued.
    The first fiscal year budget that the authority could exert 
any influence over is 1996, as provided for in section 201(c) 
of Public Law 104-8. That section of the act requires that: 
``continuous, substantial progress toward equalizing the 
expenditures and revenues of the District government,'' must be 
made with balance being achieved in 1999. The current projected 
fiscal year 1996 deficit is $116,000,000. The budget under 
consideration for fiscal year 1997, and recommended in the 
accompanying bill, projects a deficit of $99,000,000, and the 
financial plan for fiscal year 1998 calls for a deficit of 
$94,000,000 before achieving balance in 1999.
    The Committee believes that considerable deference is due 
the process and results of the budget mechanism Congress so 
recently set out in the law. Despite their differences, the 
authority, the Council and the Mayor have agreed to a budget as 
called for under Public Law 104-8. Unlike past submissions, it 
does not rely on questionable assumptions or methods of 
accounting.
    This is not to say that the financial plan need be accepted 
without question. The Committee expects that in the year ahead 
the authority and others will work to identify additional 
savings to reduce the projected deficit for fiscal year 1998 
and provide a greater margin of projected surplus for fiscal 
year 1999.
    Structural changes.--The financial authority must continue 
its work with the city government to identify inefficiencies 
and waste in order to control spending and achieve fiscal 
balance. However, it has challenges before it not unlike those 
facing Congress. While it can exercise some control over some 
discretionary spending without affecting core functions, the 
engines of deficit growth are largely more difficult to 
control.
    The General Accounting Office stated on July 19, 1996, that 
it had ``found that two critical cost drivers of the growth in 
the District's expenditures are Medicaid and pension costs.'' 
These are common problems to other State and local 
jurisdictions. Like them, the District must take steps to 
control costs, a process that is incomplete.
    But once those steps are taken, the District still must 
grapple with problems that are not common to other 
jurisdictions. While some additional Medicaid savings can be 
achieved, an even larger problem is the financing of the 
program. The District of Columbia is treated as a State for 
reimbursement purposes, with a per capita income factor that 
makes the District appear relatively wealthy. Yet two-thirds of 
the income earned in the District is claimed by nonresidents. 
By law, the District may not tax such income, so tax revenues 
from this income are unavailable to match Federal Medicaid 
funds or support the program. If the formula were based on the 
income of District residents alone, an estimated $200,000,000 
in additional Federal funds would be available to the city.
    The Federal Government is also directly responsible for the 
vast majority of the District's pension costs. When the 
District assumed certain pension plans that were operated on a 
pay-as-you-go basis by the Federal Government, it also assumed 
some $2,700,000,000 in unfunded liabilities. The small transfer 
made at the time and the promised annual $52,000,000 payment 
for 25 years amounted to a value of about $650,000,000, leaving 
an unfunded liability of more than $2,000,000,000. Although the 
District has contributed above and beyond the benefits accrued 
by participants since the transfer, the unfunded liability has 
grown to about $5,000,000,000 today.
    The fragile nature of the balanced budgets projected after 
1999 are due, in no small measure, to the requirement that the 
financial plan and budgets be prepared based upon ``Federal law 
as in effect at the time of preparation of the financial plan 
and budget,'' as stated in the act creating the authority. 
Without prompt and thoughtful action by the Congress and 
executive branch in concert with the authority and city 
leaders, it is difficult to envision how the city can achieve 
true and sustained fiscal and financial recovery.
    The authority and the city must also undertake other 
structural changes, principally in the areas of education and 
public safety, that are absolutely necessary to the long-term 
viability of the city of Washington, not only in financial 
restructuring but in developing the local economy to attract 
and retain enterprise and taxpayers.
    Public education.--The Committee concurs in the importance 
of the school reform initiatives contained in the House 
Committee on Appropriations Report 104-689 (July 18, 1996). By 
allocating $7,000,000 for the partnerships with business and 
the world class schools task force, the financial authority and 
the board of education can do much to set the District's 
schools on the right track. It is unfortunate that Congress was 
unable to appropriate funds to support these much needed 
programs in fiscal year 1996, even though sufficient funds were 
available in the subcommittee's allocation. In addition to the 
partnerships with business and the world class schools task 
force, the establishment of public charter schools in the 
District will encourage educational innovation by allowing 
these schools to operate independent of the existing 
educational bureaucracy while maintaining a commitment to 
educate all students. To ensure the success of public charter 
schools in the District, Congress saw the necessity of 
establishing an independent public charter school board to 
review charter school applications and instructed the District 
to provide operating funds for the board for fiscal year 1996. 
The Committee strongly urges the financial authority and the 
board of education to provide $300,000 in operating funds for 
the public charter school board for fiscal year 1997. The 
Committee encourages the Mayor, District Council and authority 
to continue to work together to achieve and recommend real 
changes to the relationship between the local government and 
the Federal Government.
    The Committee also believes that programs that exemplify 
vigorous partnerships between the business community, the local 
residents and the public schools should be replicated 
throughout the DCPS immediately. Such programs should be 
designed for drop-out prevention, improving literacy and 
providing after-school alternatives to gang crime and violence. 
Everybody Wins! Is a proven literacy improvement program that 
brings corporate and other volunteers into D.C. public schools, 
elementary schools every lunch hour to read with and mentor at-
risk children. Only 8 of the 76 D.C. public schools, elementary 
schools receiving title 1 funds are currently connected to the 
program. Operation FitKids establishes after-school drop-out 
prevention and fitness centers through corporate donation of 
exercise equipment, to improve students' attention to school 
with adult supervision and teach self-esteem, self-respect, and 
antidrug and violence courses. Both programs are based in the 
schools with parent and teacher coordinators drawn directly 
from the local community. The programs are easily executed for 
the corporate partners and easily sustained and implemented by 
the schools. The Committee strongly urges the financial 
authority and the board of education to provide $60,000 in 
operating funds for Everybody Wins! and $60,000 in operating 
funds for Operation FitKids for fiscal year 1997.
    The Committee supports community-based efforts to restore 
the 3-acre Kennedy playground located in the District's Shaw 
neighborhood at Seventh and O Streets NW. This historic 
playground, named after President John Kennedy, was first 
created and dedicated by Robert F. Kennedy in 1964. It has 
served a generation of children growing up in the Shaw 
community, but due to a lack of maintenance in recent years, it 
has fallen into disrepair. A group of community activists, 
supported by the D.C. Council and government, has now developed 
a plan for the repair and restoration of the Kennedy 
playground. The estimated cost of the restoration is 
$3,600,000. The Committee believes that this is an important 
project both because of the large number of children residing 
near the playground and because of the lack of comparable 
facilities in neighboring areas. The playground is needed to 
provide the city's youth with an appropriate recreational 
facility free of drug-related crime and violence. In addition, 
the playground will serve as a symbol of the revitalization of 
a community brought about through the initiative of its 
residents who deserve our support in their aspirations for a 
better life for the children of the Shaw community.
    Long-term borrowing.--The Committee recognizes that the 
District has a growing need for long-term financing for its 
capital needs, and may need to finance the effect of 
accumulated deficits. The District hopes to borrow $900,000,000 
for capital investment during the 1996-2000 planning period. 
This works out to approximately $150,000,000 per year. In the 
public schools alone, the superintendent's task force reported 
in August 1995 that school facilities required $1,200,000,000 
in repairs and renovation. These needs are compelling and 
finding solutions is critical to the future of this community.
    The respective control boards for both New York and 
Philadelphia entered into borrowing to finance accumulated 
deficits during their first year of operation. In its Final 
Report on the District of Columbia Fiscal Year 1997 Budget and 
Multi Year Plan (June 17, 1996) the authority stated that it 
``believes that: (1) Congress should authorize the District to 
borrow long term to a maximum amount during fiscal year 1997. 
(2) The authority should be given power to decide the 
following: (a) when the District can borrow; (b) the specific 
amount of the borrowing; (c) the terms and conditions of the 
borrowing; (d) the collateral to be pledged for security; and 
(e) the specific uses of the proceeds from the borrowing.''
    The Committee is concerned about the recent history of such 
borrowings by the city. In 1991 the District borrowed 
$336,605,000 to retire a then existing accumulated deficit. 
There was no comprehensive financial plan to prevent the city 
from returning to the practices that had led to the 
accumulation of a deficit, and by 1995 the Congress found it 
necessary to enact legislation creating the District of 
Columbia Financial Responsibility and Management Assistance 
Authority, a financial control board.
    The Committee is confident that with a multiyear financial 
plan in place, to be enforced by a powerful chief financial 
officer and the authority, that past excesses can be avoided. 
The other option to this long-term borrowing, according to 
GAO's July 9, 1996, testimony, is: ``borrowing short-term from 
the U.S. Treasury using the subsequent year's Federal payment 
as collateral''. If this option is followed GAO estimates that 
by April 1998 the District will have borrowed against the 
entire next fiscal year's Federal payment and ``will not have 
cash sufficient to meet the city's operating needs.''
    In conclusion, the Committee notes that the budget before 
the Congress represents a cooperative effort between the 
authority, the Mayor and the Council and wishes to commend the 
parties for their work. During the deliberations that led to 
the enactment of Public Law 104-8, the Congress was informed 
that a financial control board operated most effectively when 
it embodied local cooperation for concerted, if unpopular, 
reform measures and external pressure to impose financial 
change and oversight.
    The Committee expresses its thanks and gratitude to the 
authority members who have undertaken this task. The rewards 
for this work will be self-satisfaction and the knowledge that 
they have contributed to their city in a time of real need. The 
citizens of the city and the nation owe them a debt of 
gratitude.

                            TOTAL RESOURCES

    Based on recommendations in the bill, a total of 
$5,155,836,000 including $134,528,000 of intra-District funds 
and 32,980 full-time equivalent positions will be available to 
the District government during the next fiscal year. Included 
in this figure are appropriations from local funds, Federal 
grants, and private and other funds. The financing of 
appropriations from District funds is from the Federal payment 
and revenues from various local taxes, fees, charges and other 
collections received by the District government.

                             FEDERAL FUNDS

    A total of $1,732,705,000 in Federal funds will be 
available to the D.C. government during fiscal year 1997. 
Included in this total are the Federal payment and the Federal 
contribution to local pension funds. Other Federal funds will 
be received by the District from the various Federal grant 
program. In addition, Federal reimbursements are received from 
such programs as Medicaid and Medicare.
    The following table summarizes the various Federal funds

                            Federal Payment

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $660,000,000 
for fiscal year 1997 which is the same level as fiscal year 
1996, and represent 25.5 percent of the anticipated general 
fund revenue local collections for fiscal year 1997.
    A table showing the Federal payment and its relationship to 
general fund local revenue collection for fiscal year 1951 
through 1997 follows:

                       History of Federal Payment

    The Committee is including the usual history of the Federal 
payment and its relationship to the District's appropriated 
budget going back to fiscal year 1921. Figures for fiscal years 
1921 through 1975 reflect general fund appropriations only, 
while appropriations from 1976 through 1980 are for operating 
expenses from all sources which include the general fund as 
well as the water and sewer fund. Appropriations for 1981 
through 1997 estimates include operating expenses from the 
general fund only.
    The history referred to follows:

                 federal contribution to pension funds

    The Committee recommends the authorized amount of 
$52,070,000, which is one-half the amount requested. The 
Committee does not recommend the additional $52,070,000 which 
is not authorized. The Committee's recommendation of 
$52,070,000 reflects the Federal contribution to the police 
officers, firefighters, teachers, and judges retirement funds 
as authorized by the District of Columbia Retirement Reform Act 
(Public Law 96-122, approved November 17, 1979). This is the 
18th of 25 annual Federal payments which will total 
$1,300,000,000 and will cover a portion of the unfunded 
liability attributed to former District employees who retired 
before January 2, 1975, when home rule took effect. The Federal 
Government's contribution will finance 80 percent of the 
liability for those who took normal service retirement and one-
third of the liability for those who retired under disability.
    The District's present retirement system for police, 
firefighters, and teachers continues to provide twice-a-year 
cost-of-living increases which were discontinued for other 
retirees, including all Federal retirees, in the early 1980's. 
When compared to once-a-year cost-of-living increases, the 
twice-a-year increases are estimated to add $170,000,000 to the 
unfunded pension liability increases by the year 2005.

                             federal grants

    The District of Columbia participates as a State, county, 
and city in the various Federal grant programs. At the time the 
fiscal year 1997 budget was submitted the city estimated that 
it would receive a total of $988,820,000 in Federal grants 
during the coming fiscal year.
    The following table shows the amount of Federal grants the 
city expects to receive and the office or agency that expects 
to receive them:

                   repayment to water and sewer fund

    The District's financial plan for fiscal year 1997 includes 
the first of at least four payments of $21,500,000 each to 
repay the water and sewer enterprise fund for $91,000,000 
withdrawn by District officials and used for other governmental 
purposes. The water and sewer enterprise fund is a self-
sustaining fund whose revenues from water and sewer users are 
dedicated for use in supplying potable water and operating a 
sewerage system. The funds are not intended to be used to 
finance general government programs--only water and sewer 
programs. Therefore, the $91,000,000 that was withdrawn must be 
repaid by the District government. The shifting of these funds 
from water and sewer programs has resulted in serious safety 
concerns about the proper operation and maintenance of the Blue 
Plains Waste Water Treatment Plant.
    The Committee is concerned about the continued threats to 
the health and safety of human life and the possible adverse 
consequences to the environment and directs that the 
recommended repayment plan be adhered to by District officials 
so that the Blue Plains facility can be properly operated and 
maintained.
    A financial plan for each of the eight categories of 
operating expenses--(1) general fund, (2) University of the 
District of Columbia and D.C. School of Law, (3) water and 
sewer fund, (4) lottery and charitable games fund, (5) cable 
television fund, and (6) D.C. Sports Commission (Starplex 
fund), (7) D.C. General Hospital fund, and (8) Washington 
Convention Center follows:

judge's conduct warranting disciplinary action; (2) involuntary 
retirement of a judge for reasons of health; (3) evaluation of 
a judge who seeks reappointment at the end of his or her term; 
and (4) review of a retiring judge who wishes to continue 
performing judicial duties as a senior judge.

                     judicial nomination commission

to be derived from general revenues, and one full-time 
equivalent position for the Judicial Nomination Commission in

                       Department of Public Works

                 Water and Sewer Utility Administration

    The Committee recommends $195,619,000 from other funds for 
fiscal year 1997 for the Water and Sewer Utility 
Administration. The Committee's allowance reflects an increase 
of $8,520,000 above the fiscal year 1996 level.

                   Repayment to Water and Sewer Fund

    As noted earlier in this report, the District's financial 
plan for fiscal year 1997 includes the first of at least four 
payments of $21,500,000 each to repay the water and sewer 
enterprise fund for $91,000,000 withdrawn by District officials 
and used for other governmental purposes. The water and sewer 
enterprise fund is a self-sustaining fund whose revenues from 
water and sewer users are dedicated for use in supplying 
potable water and operating a sewerage system. The funds are 
not intended to be used to finance general government 
programs--only water and sewer programs. Therefore, the 
$91,000,000 that was withdrawn must be repaid by the District 
government. The shifting of these funds from water and sewer 
programs has resulted in serious safety concerns about the 
proper operation and maintenance of the Blue Plains Waste Water 
Treatment Plant.
    The Committee is concerned about the continued threats to 
the health and safety of human life and the possible adverse 
consequences to the environment and directs that the 
recommended repayment plan be adhered to by District officials 
so that the Blue Plains facility can be properly operated and 
maintained.
    The objective of the Water and Sewer Utility Administration 
is to provide the citizens of the District of Columbia with 
safe drinking water and to collect, treat and dispose of 
wastewater for the District, as well as a large portion of 
neighboring jurisdictions in an environmentally safe manner 
that protects our waterways.

                          Washington Aqueduct

purify, and pump an adequate supply of potable water for the 
District of Columbia, Arlington County, and the city of Falls 
Church, VA.

                      Sports Commission (Starplex)

    The Committee recommends $8,717,000 from other funds for 
the Sports Commission (Starplex) for fiscal year 1997. The 
Committee's allowance reflects an increase of $2,170,000 above 
the fiscal year 1996 level.
    The mission of the Sports Commission formerly the D.C. 
Armory Board, is to consolidate the District's efforts in 
attracting amateur and professional sporting events to the 
District. The Sports Commission is an independent agency of the 
District's and is responsible for the management of the Robert 
F. Kennedy Stadium and the secondary use of the D.C. Armory 
``to provide suitable facilities for major athletic events,

$59,735,000 transfered from the general fund, $52,684,000 from

control, and manage the assets of the D.C. teachers' retirement 
fund, the D.C. police officers' and firefighters' retirement 
fund, and the D.C. judges retirement fund.

                      Correctional Industries Fund

    The Committee recommends $3,052,000 and 50 full-time 
equivalent positions from other funds and $6,100,000 and 74 
full-time equivalent positions from intra-District funds for 
the Correctional Industries fund for fiscal year 1997. The

        determination or a separation pursuant to title XV of 
        this Act or section 303 of the Human Rights Act of 
        1977, effective December 13, 1977 (D.C. Law 2-38; D.C. 
        Code sec. 1-2543); and
          (2) an employee may file with the Office of Employee

notice to be served, no later than September 1, 1997, on any 
incumbent employee remaining in any position identified to be 
abolished pursuant to subsection (b) of this section.
