of the Senate. Senator Levin was designated Chairman of the Committee 
on Armed Services for the period January 3 until noon on January 20. 
Senator Warner was designated Chairman of the Committee on Armed 
Services effective noon on January 20 for the remainder of the 107th

the 107th Congress. [See next pages for further changes in Committee 
memberships on January 20, June 6 and July 10, 2001.]

    The Senate Committees on Military Affairs; on the Militia; 
and Naval Affairs were established on December 10, 1816. The 
Committee on the Militia was merged with the Committee on 
Military Affairs in 1858 to form the Military Affairs and 
Militia Committee. However, in 1872 the Committee dropped 
``Militia'' from its name. The Military Affairs and Naval 
Affairs Committees existed until 1947 when they were combined 
by the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 into a new 
standing committee, the current Armed Services Committee.

Note: As noted on the previous page, at the close of business on June 
5, 2001 the Democrats became the majority party in the Senate when 
Senator James M. Jeffords switched his party affiliation from 
Republican to Independent. On June 6, 2001 Senator Levin was designated 
Chairman of the Committee on Armed Services. Under the provisions of S. 
Res. 8, agreed to January 5, 2001, in the event of a change in the so-
called ``50/50 split'', committee memberships reverted back to their 
composition at the end of the 106th Congress, except that the top 
serving Democrat on each committee was immediately recognized as 
chairman. This third change in committee membership for the 107th 
Congress was in effect until July 9, 2001. On July 10, 2001, the 
Majority Leader announced new Committee assignments. [See next page for 
changes in Committee membership on July 10, 2001.]

     RELATIONSHIP OF ANNUAL AUTHORIZATION TO DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE 
                             APPROPRIATIONS

          History of Section 114, Title 10, United States Code

    The jurisdiction of the committee so far as specific annual 
authorizations are concerned was increased significantly in 
1959 by the enactment of section 412(b) of Public Law 86-149 
which required annual congressional authorization of 
appropriations for the procurement of aircraft, missiles and 
naval vessels. That law was amended and expanded as follows:
    In 1962 (Public Law 88-436) to require similar 
authorization of appropriations for research, development, test 
or evaluation associated with aircraft, missiles and naval 
vessels;
    In 1963 (Public Law 88-174) to require similar 
authorization of appropriations for all research, development, 
test, or evaluation carried on by the Department of Defense;
    In 1965 (Public Law 89-37) to require authorization of 
appropriations for the procurement of tracked combat vehicles;
    In 1967 (Public Law 90-168) to require annual authorization 
of the personnel strengths of each of the Selected Reserves of 
the Reserve components as a prior condition for the 
appropriation of funds for the pay and allowances for the 
Reserve components;
    In 1969 (Public Law 91-121) to require authorization of 
appropriations for the procurement of other weapons to or for 
the use of any armed force of the United States. (Essentially, 
heavy, medium, and light artillery, anti-aircraft artillery, 
rifles, machine-guns, mortars, small arms weapons, and any 
crew-fired piece using fixed ammunition);
    In 1970 (Public Law 91-441) to require authorization of 
appropriations to or for the use of the Navy for the 
procurement of torpedoes and related support equipment; and to 
require authorization of the average annual active duty 
personnel strength for each component of the Armed Forces as a 
condition precedent to the appropriation of funds for this 
purpose;
    In 1971 (Public Law 92-436) to require annual authorization 
for the average military training student loads for each 
component of the Armed Forces, and modified the provision 
relating to authorization for active duty personnel strength;
    In 1973 (Public Law 93-155) to require authorization for 
end strength civilian employment for each component of the 
Defense Department in each fiscal year;
    In 1975 (Public Law 94-106) to require the annual 
authorization of military construction of ammunition 
facilities;
    In 1980 (Public Law 96-342) to require the annual 
authorization of appropriations of funds for the operation and 
maintenance of any armed force of the activities and agencies 
of the Department of Defense (other than the military 
departments) for fiscal years beginning after September 30, 
1981; and
    In 1982 (Public law 97-86) to require the annual 
authorization of appropriations of funds for procurement of 
ammunition or other procurement for any armed force or for 
agencies of the Department of Defense (other than military 
departments).
    Also, in 1973 these enactments were codified by section 
803(a) of Public Law 93-155 into Title 10, United States Code, 
as section 138. Section 138 was amended on several occasions 
and, in 1986, was divided into two sections redesignated as 
sections 114 and 115 of title 10, United States Code, by the 
Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defense Reorganization Act of 
1986 (Public Law 99-433). Both sections have subsequently been 
amended several times. The law today reads as follows:
Sec. 114. Annual authorization of appropriations
    (a) No funds may be appropriated for any fiscal year to or 
for the use of any armed force or obligated or expended for--
          (1) procurement of aircraft, missiles, or naval 
        vessels;
          (2) any research, development, test, or evaluation, 
        or procurement or production related thereto;
          (3) procurement of tracked combat vehicles;
          (4) procurement of other weapons;
          (5) procurement of naval torpedoes and related 
        support equipment;
          (6) military construction;
          (7) the operation and maintenance of any armed force 
        or of the activities and agencies of the Department of 
        Defense (other than the military departments);
          (8) procurement of ammunition; or
          (9) other procurement by any armed force or by the 
        activities and agencies of the Department of Defense 
        (other than the military departments); unless funds 
        therefor have been specifically authorized by law.
    (b) In subsection (a)(6), the term ``military 
construction'' includes any construction, development, 
conversion, or extension of any kind which is carried out with 
respect to any military facility or installation (including any 
Government-owned or Government-leased industrial facility used 
for the production of defense articles and any facility to 
which section 2353 of this title applies), any activity to 
which section 2807 of this title applies, any activity to which 
chapter 1803 of this title applies, and advances to the 
Secretary of Transportation for the construction of defense 
access roads under section 210 of title 23. Such term does not 
include any activity to which section 2821 or 2854 of this 
title applies.
    (c)(1) The size of the Special Defense Acquisition Fund 
established pursuant to chapter 5 of the Arms Export Control 
Act (22 U.S.C. 2795 et seq.) may not exceed $1,070,000,000.
    (2) Notwithstanding section 37(a) of the Arms Export 
Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2777(a)), amounts received by the United 
States pursuant to subparagraph (A) of section 21(a)(1) of that 
Act (22 U.S.C. 2761(a)(1))--
          (A) shall be credited to the Special Defense 
        Acquisition Fund established pursuant to chapter 5 of 
        that Act (22 U.S.C. 2795(b)(1)), but subject to the 
        limitation in paragraph (1) and other applicable law, 
        and
          (B) to the extent not so credited, shall be deposited 
        in the Treasury as miscellaneous receipts as provided 
        in section 3302(b) of title 31.
    (d) Funds may be appropriated for the armed forces for use 
as an emergency fund for research, development, test, and 
evaluation, or related procurement or production only if the 
appropriation of the funds is authorized by law after June 30, 
1966.
    (e) In each budget submitted by the President to Congress 
under section 1105 of title 31, amounts requested for 
procurement of equipment for the reserve components of the 
armed forces (including the National Guard) shall be set forth 
separately from other amounts requested for procurement for the 
armed forces.
    (f) In each budget submitted by the President to Congress 
under section 1105 of title 31, amounts requested for 
procurement of ammunition for the Navy and Marine Corps, and 
for procurement of ammunition for the Air Force, shall be set 
forth separately from other amounts requested for procurement.
Sec. 115. Personnel strengths: requirement for annual authorization
    (a) Congress shall authorize personnel strength levels for 
each fiscal year for each of the following:
          (1) The end strength for each of the armed forces 
        (other than the Coast Guard) for (A) active-duty 
        personnel who are to be paid from funds appropriated 
        for active-duty personnel, and (B) active-duty 
        personnel and full-time National Guard duty personnel 
        who are to be paid from funds appropriated for reserve 
        personnel.
          (2) The end strength for the Selected Reserve of each 
        reserve component of the armed forces.
    (b) No funds may be appropriated for any fiscal year to or 
for--
          (1) the use of active-duty personnel or full-time 
        National Guard duty personnel of any of the armed 
        forces (other than the Coast Guard) unless the end 
        strength for such personnel of that armed force for 
        that fiscal year has been authorized by law; or
          (2) the use of the Selected Reserve of any reserve 
        component of the armed forces unless the end strength 
        for the Selected Reserve of that component for that 
        fiscal year has been authorized by law.
    (c) Upon determination by the Secretary of Defense that 
such action is in the national interest, the Secretary may--
          (1) increase the end strength authorized pursuant to 
        subsection (a)(1)(A) for a fiscal year for any of the 
        armed forces by a number to not more than 2 percent of 
        that end strength; and
          (2) increase the end strength authorized pursuant to 
        subsection (a)(1)(B) for a fiscal year for any of the 
        armed forces by a number equal to not more than 2 
        percent of that end strength; and
          (3) vary the end strength authorized pursuant to 
        subsection (a)(2) for a fiscal year for the Selected 
        Reserve of any of the reserve components by a number 
        equal to not more than 2 percent of that end strength.
    (d) In counting active-duty personnel for the purpose of 
the end-strengths authorized pursuant to subsection (a)(1), 
persons in the following categories shall be excluded;
          (1) Members of the Ready Reserve ordered to active 
        duty under section 12302 of this title.
          (2) Members of the Selected Reserve of the Ready 
        Reserve ordered to active duty under section 12304 of 
        this title.
          (3) Members of the National Guard called into Federal

        paragraph (8)) on active duty for more than 180 days 
        but less than 271 days to perform special work in 
        support of the combatant commands, except that--
                  (A) general flag officers may not be excluded 
                under this paragraph; and
                  (B) the number of members of any of the armed 
                forces excluded under this paragraph may not 
                exceed the number equal to 0.2 percent of the 
                end strength authorized for active-duty

ACTIVITIES OF THE COMMITTEE ON ARMED SERVICES DURING THE 107TH CONGRESS 
                            (2001 AND 2002)

    The following is a summary of activities of the Committee 
on Armed Services during the 107th Congress:
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2002
    The committee began the 107th Congress with a series of in-
depth hearings and briefings on the global threats to the 
national security of the United States and the priorities and 
plans for both the Department of Defense and the Department of 
Energy to meet the challenges of the 21st Century threat 
environment. Witnesses from the Department of Defense, 
Department of Energy, and various intelligence agencies 
provided the committee with updated information on the full 
spectrum of issues relevant to the defense of the Nation and 
U.S. national security interests worldwide. These discussions 
framed the context for consideration of the President's fiscal 
year 2002 budget proposal.
    The new Bush administration first submitted its initial 
blueprint for the budget request for fiscal year 2002 to the 
committee in February 2001. The committee then received the 
President's final, amended budget request on June 29, 2001. The 
committee conducted a total of 24 hearings in review of the 
defense authorization request. Senior officials from the 
Department of Defense, including Secretary of Defense Donald 
Rumsfeld, Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, Chairman 
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Henry Shelton, USA, the 
service secretaries, the service chiefs, the unified and 
specified combatant commanders, and other civilian government 
officials testified before the committee on the budget 
proposal. By September 5, 2001, when the committee met to mark 
up the National Defense Authorization Bill for Fiscal Year 
2002, a total of 105 witnesses had testified before the 
committee on the budget request.
    During the course of these hearings, the committee 
identified five priorities for the development of the National 
Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2002:
           Continuing improvements in the compensation 
        and quality of life of the men and women of the Armed 
        Forces and their families;
           Sustaining the readiness of the military 
        services to carry out their assigned missions;
           Encouraging the transformation of the 
        military services to lighter, more lethal and more 
        capable forces;
           Improving the capability of the Armed Forces 
        to meet non-traditional threats, including terrorism 
        and unconventional means of delivering weapons of mass 
        destruction; and
           Improving the efficiency of DOD programs and 
        operations.
    The subcommittees and full committee met from September 5 
through September 7, 2001 to mark up the National Defense 
Authorization Bill for Fiscal Year 2002. The bill, S. 1416, was 
reported to the Senate on September 12, 2001. The bill 
authorized $343.3 billion in budget authority for defense 
programs which was consistent with the level requested by the 
administration in the fiscal year 2002 budget request.
    The Senate began consideration of the bill on September 21, 
2001. During the Senate debate on the measure, 84 amendments 
were offered and 3 roll call votes were recorded. The measure 
passed the Senate, with amendments, on October 2, 2001, by a 
vote of 99-0.
    Following the passage of the House companion measure (H.R. 
2586), conferees from the Senate and House began conference on 
October 10, 2001, to reconcile the differences between the two 
versions of the bill. Conference negotiations were concluded 
and the conference report (H. Rept. 107-333) was filed on 
December 12, 2001. The House approved the conference report on 
December 13, 2001 by a vote of 382-40.
    On December 13, 2001, the Senate agreed to the conference 
report by a vote of 96-2 and forwarded the measure to the 
President. The President signed the bill into law on December 
28, 2001 (Public Law 107-107).
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2003
    The committee received the President's budget request for 
fiscal year 2003 on February 4, 2002. On February 5, Secretary 
of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs 
of Staff, General Richard Myers, USAF testified before the full 
committee at the first of 25 hearings conducted to specifically 
address the defense authorization request. During these 
hearings, 104 witnesses, including the Secretary and Deputy 
Secretary of Defense, the service secretaries, the service 
chiefs, the unified and specified combatant commanders, and 
other civilian government officials, provided the committee 
with expert analysis and assessments of the President's budget 
request. Overall, the committee held 41 hearings during the 
first 41 days of congressional session to consider the budget 
request and other related issues. Over the course of these 
hearings, the committee identified five priorities for its 
development of the National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2003:
           Continuing the improvements in the 
        compensation and quality of life of the men and women 
        in the Armed Forces, retirees, and their families;
           Sustaining the readiness of the military 
        services to conduct the full range of their assigned 
        missions, including current and future operations 
        against international terrorism;
           Improving the efficiency of Department of 
        Defense programs and operations and apply the savings 
        toward high priority programs;
           Improving the ability of the Armed Forces to 
        meet non-traditional threats, including terrorism and 
        weapons of mass destruction; and
           Promoting the transformation of the Armed 
        Forces to meet the threats of the 21st century.
    The subcommittees and full committee met from May 7 through 
May 9, 2002, to mark up the National Defense Authorization Bill 
for Fiscal Year 2003 (S. 2514). Upon completion, the committee 
agreed to authorize $393.3 billion for defense spending for 
fiscal year 2003. Through this legislation, the committee 
sought to build on the considerable strengths of our military 
forces and their record of success by preserving a high quality 
of life for U.S. servicemen and women and their families, 
sustaining readiness, and transforming the Armed Forces to meet 
the threats and challenges of tomorrow.
    The events following September 11, 2001, once again 
demonstrated that the U.S. military is the most capable 
fighting force in the world. The success of our forces in 
Afghanistan is a tribute to the men and women of the Armed 
Forces and the significance of the investments in national 
defense made by the Congress and the Department of Defense over 
the years. With this bill, the committee aimed to continue to 
support the success of our forces with the resources, tools, 
and technologies that they would need to deter and, if 
necessary, prevail in future conflicts, in both the traditional 
and non-traditional threat environments of the 21st century.
    The committee reported S. 2514 to the Senate on May 15, 
2002. On June 18, 2002, the Senate began its consideration of 
the bill. After the consideration of 115 amendments and 7 roll 
call votes, the Senate passed S. 2514 by a vote of 97-2 on June 
27, 2002.
    On July 28, 2002, conferees from the House and Senate began 
meetings to resolve the differences between the Senate and 
House defense authorization bills.
    On November 12, 2002, the conferees concluded negotiations 
and filed the conference report to accompany the House-passed 
bill, H.R. 4546 (H. Rept. 107-772). The House considered the 
conference report the same day under a suspension of the rules 
and passed it by a voice vote. Senate action on the conference 
report followed the next day with passage by voice vote.
    On December 2, 2002, the measure was signed by the 
President and became Public Law 107-314.
Military Operations and the War on Terrorism
    During the 107th Congress, the United States military was 
actively engaged in fighting the continuing global war on 
terrorism. In addition to its review of the annual defense 
authorization request, the Committee held 36 hearings and 
briefings specifically focused on military operations and 
policies in our fight against terrorist threats both at home 
and abroad, worldwide threats to United States security 
interests overall, and U.S. policies with regard to the new 
security environment of the 21st Century.
    During the first session of the Congress, the Committee 
continued its series of hearings and briefings on the October 
12, 2000 terrorist attack on the USS Cole. The committee 
received the report of the Crouch-Gehman Commission, which was 
created to review the existing force protection program within 
the Department of Defense and to make recommendations on the 
prevention of such attacks in the future. It was the 
committee's goal to uncover the lessons learned from the attack 
in order to determine what steps could be taken to improve 
force protection for the future safety of our men and women in 
uniform.
    Following the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the 
United States entered into a new era, waging an ongoing war 
against global terrorism both at home and abroad. The United 
States responded to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade 
Center and the Pentagon with the deployment of U.S. troops to 
Afghanistan on October 7, 2001, as part of Operation Enduring 
Freedom (OEF). The OEF campaign focused on eliminating the use 
of Afghanistan as a base of operations for al Qaeda and other 
terrorist groups, overturning the Taliban regime, and providing 
humanitarian assistance to the Afghan civilian population. The 
committee held 13 hearings and briefings on military operations 
in Afghanistan and other U.S. operations around the globe, 
bringing to the forefront significant issues such as:
           Joint operations represented by 
        unprecedented levels of cooperation between the 
        military services;
           The importance of international cooperation 
        in the war on terrorism through intelligence--sharing 
        and granting of overflight rights and airstrip use;
           The conduct of humanitarian missions as U.S. 
        troops not only carry out combat missions but also 
        humanitarian assistance;
           The effectiveness of new battlefield 
        technology with the increased use of precision-guided 
        munitions and unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs) 
        such as Global Hawk and the Predator; and
           The safety and protection of our troops 
        overseas.
    In a September 12, 2002 speech to the United Nations 
General Assembly, President Bush called upon the world 
community to take action against the Saddam Hussein regime and 
enforce the U.N. resolutions passed since 1991 requiring the 
unconditional disarmament of Iraq. During the ensuing month of 
debate in Congress over the authorization of the possible use 
of force against Iraq, the committee held four hearings on U.S. 
policy toward Iraq. The purpose of the hearings was to give the 
Administration the opportunity to present its position on Iraq 
and to allow the committee to examine the Administration's 
proposal through testimony from Administration witnesses, 
former senior military officials, and expert witnesses from 
outside the government. The series of hearings focused on a 
number of key questions including:
           The continuing threat posed by Saddam 
        Hussein, Iraqi capabilities, and the possible use of 
        weapons of mass destruction (WMD) against Iraqi 
        neighbors and U.S. forces;
           The consequences of unilateral military 
        action by the United States against Iraq;
           The impact on the overall war on terrorism 
        should there be military conflict in Iraq; and
           The possible aftermath of war and the 
        resulting regime change, not only in Iraq, but also on 
        a broader regional level.
    After a month of debate in Congress, on October 11 and 12, 
2002, respectively, the House and Senate passed a joint 
resolution (H.J. Res. 114) authorizing the President to use 
force if necessary to eliminate threats posed by Saddam 
Hussein's regime in Iraq. Following the passage of the joint 
resolution, the committee continued to receive briefings on 
developments in Iraq through the end of the 107th Congress.
Other Oversight Activities
    Throughout each Congress, the committee is involved in the 
oversight of many Department of Defense activities as well as 
the review of the national security implications of 
international treaties, a jurisdiction it shares with other 
congressional committees. During the 107th Congress, the 
committee received the submission of the 2001 Quadrennial 
Defense Review (QDR), a congressionally-mandated review of the 
national defense strategy. In October 2001, the committee met 
to receive testimony on the QDR from Deputy Secretary of 
Defense Paul Wolfowitz and the Director of the Joint Staff, 
Lieutenant General Bruce Carlson, USAF. In January 2002, the 
Administration released to Congress the results of its Nuclear 
Posture Review (NPR), conducted by the Bush Administration as a 
broad review and future guideline for U.S. nuclear weapons 
policy, doctrine, force structure, and infrastructure. The 
committee held two hearings and several briefings in review of 
the NPR and its implications for Department of Defense and 
Department of Energy policies for the future. Additionally, 
following the May 2002 signing of the Strategic Offensive 
Reduction Treaty (SORT) by President Bush and Russian President 
Vladimir Putin in Moscow, the committee held two hearings to 
consider the military implications of the Treaty, which seeks 
to reduce strategic nuclear weapons in each country to between 
1,700 and 2,200 warheads by December 2012. The committee heard 
testimony from the Secretary of Defense, the Commander of the 
United States Strategic Command, the National Nuclear Security 
Administration, and several expert witnesses from outside the 
government.

             COMMITTEE ON ARMED SERVICES RULES OF PROCEDURE

                      (Adopted February 28, 2001)

    1. Regular Meeting Day. The Committee shall meet at least 
once a month when Congress is in session. The regular meeting 
days of the Committee shall be Tuesday and Thursday, unless the 
Chairman, after consultation with the Ranking Minority Member, 
directs otherwise.
    2. Additional Meetings. The Chairman, after consultation 
with the Ranking Minority Member, may call such additional 
meetings as he deems necessary.
    3. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the Committee may 
be called by a majority of the members of the Committee in 
accordance with paragraph 3 of Rule XXVI of the Standing Rules 
of the Senate.
    4. Open Meetings. Each meeting of the Committee, or any 
subcommittee thereof, including meetings to conduct hearings, 
shall be open to the public, except that a meeting or series of 
meetings by the Committee or a subcommittee thereof on the same 
subject for a period of no more than fourteen (14) calendar 
days may be closed to the public on a motion made and seconded 
to go into closed session to discuss only whether the matters 
enumerated below in clauses (a) through (f) would require the 
meeting to be closed, followed immediately by a record vote in 
open session by a majority of the members of the Committee or 
subcommittee when it is determined that the matters to be 
discussed or the testimony to be taken at such meeting or 
meetings--
          (a) will disclose matters necessary to be kept secret 
        in the interests of national defense or the 
        confidential conduct of the foreign relations of the 
        United States;
          (b) will relate solely to matters of Committee staff 
        personnel or internal staff management or procedure;
          (c) will tend to charge an individual with a crime or 
        misconduct, to disgrace or injure the professional 
        standing of an individual, or otherwise to expose an 
        individual to public contempt or obloquy or will 
        represent a clearly unwarranted invasion of the privacy 
        of an individual;
          (d) will disclose the identity of any informer or law 
        enforcement agent or will disclose any information 
        relating to the investigation or prosecution of a 
        criminal offense that is required to be kept secret in 
        the interests of effective law enforcement;
          (e) will disclose information relating to the trade 
        secrets or financial or commercial information 
        pertaining specifically to a given person if--
                  (1) an Act of Congress requires the 
                information to be kept confidential by 
                Government officers and employees; or
                  (2) the information has been obtained by the 
                Government on a confidential basis, other than 
                through an application by such person for a 
                specific Government financial or other benefit, 
                and is required to be kept secret in order to 
                prevent undue injury to the competitive 
                position of such person; or
          (f) may divulge matters required to be kept 
        confidential under other provisions of law or 
        Government regulations.
    5. Presiding Officer. The Chairman shall preside at all

are required to be actually present to report a matter or 
measure from the committee. (See Standing Rules of the Senate 
26.7(a)(1).)
    (b) Except as provided in subsections (a) and (c), and 
other than for the conduct of hearings, eight members of the 
Committee, including one member of the minority party; or a 
majority of the members of the Committee, shall constitute a 
quorum for the transaction of such business as may be 
considered by the Committee.

establishing a quorum.
    7. Proxy Voting. Proxy voting shall be allowed on all 
measures and matters before the Committee. The vote by proxy of 
any member of the Committee may be counted for the purpose of 
reporting any measure or matter to the Senate if the absent 
member casting such vote has been informed of the matter on 
which he is being recorded and has affirmatively requested that 
he be so recorded. Proxy must be given in writing.
    8. Announcement of Votes. The results of all roll call 
votes taken in any meeting of the Committee on any measure, or 
amendment thereto, shall be announced in the Committee report, 
unless previously announced by the Committee. The announcement

cast in opposition to each such measure and amendment by each 
member of the Committee who was present at such meeting. The 
Chairman, after consultation with the Ranking Minority Member, 
may hold open a roll call vote on any measure or matter which 
is before the Committee until no later than midnight of the day 
on which the Committee votes on such measure or matter.
    9. Subpoenas. Subpoenas for attendance of witnesses and for 
the production of memoranda, documents, records, and the like 
may be issued, after consultation with the Ranking Minority 
Member, by the Chairman or any other member designated by him, 
but only when authorized by a majority of the members of the 
Committee. The subpoena shall briefly state the matter to which 
the witness is expected to testify or the documents to be 
produced.
    10. Hearings. (a) Public notice shall be given of the date, 
place, and subject matter of any hearing to be held by the 
Committee, or any subcommittee thereof, at least 1 week in

determines that good cause exists for beginning such hearings 
at an earlier time.
    (b) Hearings may be initiated only by the specified 
authorization of the Committee or subcommittee.
    (c) Hearings shall be held only in the District of Columbia 
unless specifically authorized to be held elsewhere by a

    (d) The Chairman of the Committee or subcommittee shall 
consult with the Ranking Minority Member thereof before naming 
witnesses for a hearing.
    (e) Witnesses appearing before the Committee shall file 
with the clerk of the Committee a written statement of their 
proposed testimony prior to the hearing at which they are to 
appear unless the Chairman and the Ranking Minority Member 
determine that there is good cause not to file such a 
statement. Witnesses testifying on behalf of the Administration 
shall furnish an additional 50 copies of their statement to the 
Committee. All statements must be received by the Committee at 
least 48 hours (not including weekends or holidays) before the 
hearing.
    (f) Confidential testimony taken or confidential material 
presented in a closed hearing of the Committee or subcommittee 
or any report of the proceedings of such hearing shall not be 
made public in whole or in part or by way of summary unless 
authorized by a majority vote of the Committee or subcommittee.
    (g) Any witness summoned to give testimony or evidence at a 
public or closed hearing of the Committee or subcommittee may 
be accompanied by counsel of his own choosing who shall be 
permitted at all times during such hearing to advise such 
witness of his legal rights.
    (h) Witnesses providing unsworn testimony to the Committee 
may be given a transcript of such testimony for the purpose of 
making minor grammatical corrections. Such witnesses will not, 
however, be permitted to alter the substance of their 
testimony. Any question involving such corrections shall be 
decided by the Chairman.
    11. Nominations. Unless otherwise ordered by the Committee, 
nominations referred to the Committee shall be held for at 
least seven (7) days before being voted on by the Committee. 
Each member of the Committee shall be furnished a copy of all 
nominations referred to the Committee.
    12. Real Property Transactions. Each member of the 
Committee shall be furnished with a copy of the proposals of 
the Secretaries of the Army, Navy, and Air Force, submitted 
pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 2662 and with a copy of the proposals of 
the Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, 
submitted pursuant to 50 U.S.C. App. 2285, regarding the 
proposed acquisition or disposition of property of an estimated 
price or rental of more than $50,000. Any member of the 
Committee objecting to or requesting information on a proposed 
acquisition or disposal shall communicate his objection or 
request to the Chairman of the Committee within thirty (30) 
days from the date of submission.
    13. Legislative Calendar. (a) The clerk of the Committee 
shall keep a printed calendar for the information of each 
Committee member showing the bills introduced and referred to 
the Committee and the status of such bills. Such calendar shall 
be revised from time to time to show pertinent changes in such 
bills, the current status thereof, and new bills introduced and 
referred to the Committee. A copy of each new revision shall be 
furnished to each member of the Committee.
    (b) Unless otherwise ordered, measures referred to the 
Committee shall be referred by the clerk of the Committee to 
the appropriate department or agency of the Government for 
reports thereon.
    14. Except as otherwise specified herein, the Standing 
Rules of the Senate shall govern the actions of the Committee. 
Each subcommittee of the Committee is part of the Committee, 
and is therefore subject to the Committee's rules so far as 
applicable.
    15. Powers and Duties of Subcommittees. Each subcommittee 
is authorized to meet, hold hearings, receive evidence, and 
report to the full Committee on all matters referred to it. 
Subcommittee chairmen, after consultation with Ranking Minority 
Members of the subcommittees, shall set dates for hearings and 
meetings of their respective subcommittees after consultation 
with the chairman and other subcommittee chairmen with a view 
toward avoiding simultaneous scheduling of full Committee and 
subcommittee meetings or hearings whenever possible.
