  SEMIANNUAL REPORT ON ACTIVITIES OF THE COMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS

              State of the Union and ordered to be printed

                                _______
                                

    Mr. Rogers, from the Committee on Appropriations, submitted the 
                               following

                          S E M I A N N U A L

                              R E P O R T

    The Committee on Appropriations is the principal arm 
through which the House of Representatives exercises its 
constitutional responsibility to provide funds for the 
operations of the various activities of the Federal Government. 
Clause 1(b) of rule X of the House provides that the Committee 
shall have jurisdiction over the ``Appropriation of the revenue 
for the support of the Government.'' This responsibility has 
basically been vested in the Committee since 1865.
    The Committee has been established by the House with a 
membership of 50 during the 112th Congress. With relatively few 
exceptions, the responsibilities of the Committee are carried 
out through its 12 Subcommittees which in turn report to the 
full Committee. The Subcommittees are organized essentially on 
a functional basis with recognition of the existing structure 
of the Departments and agencies within the Executive Branch. 
(The jurisdictional assignments of Subcommittees during the 
112th Congress are displayed in Appendix C.)

                                  (1)

      

                   SUMMARY OF APPROPRIATIONS ACTIONS


                     Second Session--112th Congress

    During the second session of the 112th Congress, the 
Committee on Appropriations has continued its commitment to 
``regular order'' in the consideration of appropriations bills, 
where Members of the House are assured of an open, transparent, 
and fair process. Bills are considered in open subcommittee and 
committee markups, with information on those bills publicly 
available before markups. Bills are brought to the House floor 
under open rules that protect the right of every Member of the 
House to offer amendments.
    This return to ``regular order'' facilitates the 
Committee's ability to get its work done. The Committee has 
been able to move deliberately and expeditiously through the 
many stages of the appropriations process during the second 
session. The Committee held its first subcommittee markup on 
April 18th, which was the earliest subcommittee markup in 
recent years. At the time this Activities Report went to press, 
the Committee had marked up eleven bills in subcommittee and 
committee and shepherded six bills through passage by the 
House. This included consideration of 94 amendments in 
committee markups and 246 amendments during 12 legislative days 
on the House floor. The Committee expects to continue to 
advance the remaining bills through the House during the 
remainder of the second session.
    The Committee's bills represent commitment to fiscal 
restraint. As an example, total funding in the fiscal year 2013 
Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations 
bill is $1.6 billion lower than the fiscal year 2012 level. The 
Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs 
Appropriations bill is $2 billion, or 5 percent, below last 
year. The Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and 
Related Agencies Appropriations bill saves $3.9 billion 
compared to fiscal year 2012.
    At the same time, the Committee maintains its commitment to 
providing adequate resources for national defense and veterans' 
programs. At $519.2 billion (excluding amounts designated for 
the Global War on Terrorism), the fiscal year 2013 Defense 
Appropriations bill provides a $1.1 billion increase over last 
year. The Department of Veterans Affairs receives $2.3 billion 
more than fiscal year 2012 in the Military Construction and 
Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations bill.
    The Committee also had an aggressive schedule of oversight 
and budget hearings in the opening weeks of the second session. 
The Committee held 108 hearings between the beginning of 
February and the commencement of subcommittee markups. 
Testimony was heard from 420 witnesses. The Committee places a 
high priority on conducting detailed reviews of agency budgets 
and exercising comprehensive oversight on the programs under 
its jurisdiction.

appropriations actions during both the first and second 
sessions of the 112th Congress, including action dates, bill

    Pursuant to clause 2(d)(1) of rule X, the committee 
submitted the following Oversight Plan on February 8, 2011:

        OVERSIGHT PLANS OF THE HOUSE COMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS

    Clause 2(d)(1) of Rule X of the Rules of the House requires 
each standing committee of the House to adopt oversight plans 
at the beginning of each Congress. Specifically, the Rule 
states in part:
          ``Rule X, clause 2(d)(1). Not later than February 15 
        of the first session of a Congress, each standing 
        committee shall, in a meeting that is open to the 
        public and with a quorum present, adopt its oversight 
        plan for that Congress. Such plan shall be submitted 
        simultaneously to the Committee on Government Reform 
        and to the Committee on House Administration.''

            JURISDICTION OF THE COMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS

    Rule X of the Rules of the House vests in the Committee on 
Appropriations broad responsibility over the Federal budget. 
Specifically the Rule defines the Committee's jurisdiction, as 
follows:
          ``Rule X clause 1(b). Committee on Appropriations.
          (1) Appropriation of the revenue for the support of 
        the Government.
          (2) Rescissions of appropriations contained in 
        appropriations Acts.
          (3) Transfers of unexpended balances.
          (4) Bills and joint resolutions reported by other 
        committees that provide new entitlement authority as 
        defined in section 3(9) of the Congressional Budget Act 
        of 1974 and referred to the committee under clause 
        4(a)(2).''

                   General Oversight Responsibilities

    2. (a) The various standing committees shall have general 
oversight responsibilities as provided in paragraph (b) in 
order to assist the House in--
          (1) its analysis, appraisal, and evaluation of (A) 
        the application, administration, execution, and 
        effectiveness of Federal laws; and (B) conditions and 
        circumstances that may indicate the necessity or 
        desirability of enacting new or additional legislation; 
        and
          (2) its formulation, consideration, and enactment of 
        such changes in Federal laws, and of such additional 
        legislation, as may be necessary or appropriate.
    (b)(1) In order to determine whether laws and programs 
addressing subjects within the jurisdiction of a committee are 
being implemented and carried out in accordance with the intent 
of Congress and whether they should be continued, curtailed, or 
eliminated, each standing committee (other than the Committee 
on Appropriations) shall review and study on a continuing 
basis--
          (A) the application, administration, execution, and 
        effectiveness of laws and programs addressing subjects 
        within its jurisdiction;
          (B) the organization and operation of Federal 
        agencies and entities having responsibilities for the 
        administration and execution of laws and programs 
        addressing subjects within its jurisdiction;
          (C) any conditions or circumstances that may indicate 
        the necessity or desirability of enacting new or 
        additional legislation addressing subjects within its 
        jurisdiction (whether or not a bill or resolution has 
        been introduced with respect thereto); and
          (D) future research and forecasting on subjects 
        within its jurisdiction.

                      Special Oversight Functions

    3. (a) The Committee on Appropriations shall conduct such 
studies and examinations of the organization and operation of 
executive departments and other executive agencies (including 
any agency the majority of the stock of which is owned by the 
United States) as it considers necessary to assist it in the 
determination of matters within its jurisdiction.

                   Additional Functions of Committees

    4. (a)(1)(A) The Committee on Appropriations shall, within 
30 days after the transmittal of the budget to Congress each 
year, hold hearings on the budget as a whole with particular 
reference to--
          (i) the basic recommendations and budgetary policies 
        of the President in the presentation of the budget; and
          (ii) the fiscal, financial, and economic assumptions 
        used as bases in arriving at total estimated 
        expenditures and receipts.
    (B) In holding hearings under subdivision (A), the 
Committee shall receive testimony from the Secretary of the 
Treasury, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, 
the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, and such 
other persons as the Committee may desire.
    (C) A hearing under subdivision (A), or any part thereof, 
shall be held in open session, except when the committee, in 
open session and with a quorum present, determines by record 
vote that the testimony to be taken at that hearing on that day 
may be related to a matter of national security. The committee 
may by the same procedure close one subsequent day of hearing. 
A transcript of all such hearings shall be printed and a copy 
thereof furnished to each Member, Delegate, and the Resident 
Commissioner.
    (D) A hearing under subdivision (A), or any part thereof, 
may be held before a joint meeting of the Committee and the 
Committee on Appropriations of the Senate in accordance with 
such procedures as the two committees jointly may determine.
    (2) Pursuant to section 401(b)(2) of the Congressional 
Budget Act of 1974, when a committee reports a bill or joint 
resolution that provides new entitlement authority as defined 
in section 3(9) of that Act, and enactment of the bill or joint 
resolution, as reported, would cause a breach of the 
committee's pertinent allocation of new budget authority under 
section 302(a) of that Act, the bill or joint resolution may be 
referred to the Committee on Appropriations with instruction to 
report it with recommendations (which may include an amendment 
limiting the total amount of new entitlement authority provided 
in the bill or joint resolution). If the Committee on 
Appropriations fails to report a bill or joint resolution so 
referred within 15 calendar days (not counting any day on which 
the House is not in session), the committee automatically shall 
be discharged from consideration of the bill or joint 
resolution, and the bill or joint resolution shall be placed on 
the appropriate calendar.
    (3) In addition, the Committee on Appropriations shall 
study on a continuing basis those provisions of law that (on 
the first day of the first fiscal year for which the 
congressional budget process is effective) provide spending 
authority or permanent budget authority and shall report to the 
House from time to time its recommendations for terminating or 
modifying such provisions.
    (4) In the manner provided by section 302 of the 
Congressional Budget Act of 1974, the Committee on 
Appropriations (after consulting with the Committee on 
Appropriations of the Senate) shall subdivide any allocations 
made to it in the joint explanatory statement accompanying the 
conference report on such concurrent resolution, and promptly 
report the subdivisions to the House as soon as practicable 
after a concurrent resolution on the budget for a fiscal year 
is agreed to.
    Rule XIII of the Rules of the House prescribes special 
reporting requirements of the Committee on Appropriations. 
Specifically Rule XIII, clause 3(f) states:

                           Content of Reports

    ``(f)(1) A report of the Committee on Appropriations on a 
general appropriation bill shall include--
          (A) a concise statement describing the effect of any 
        provision of the accompanying bill that directly or 
        indirectly changes the application of existing law; and
          (B) a list of all appropriations contained in the 
        bill for expenditures not currently authorized by law 
        for the period concerned (except classified 
        intelligence or national security programs, projects, 
        or activities) along with a statement of the last year 
        for which such expenditures were authorized, the level 
        of expenditures authorized for that year, the actual 
        level of expenditures for that year, and the level of 
        appropriations in the bill for such expenditures.
    (2) Whenever the Committee on Appropriations reports a bill 
or joint resolution including matter specified in clause 
1(b)(2) or (3) of rule X, it shall include--
          (A) in the bill or joint resolution, separate 
        headings for ``Rescissions'' and ``Transfers of 
        Unexpended Balances''; and
          (B) in the report of the committee, a separate 
        section listing such rescissions and transfers.''

                             OVERSIGHT PLAN

    The Committee on Appropriations is strongly committed to 
stringent and comprehensive oversight of federal discretionary 
spending to ensure that taxpayer dollars are being invested 
wisely and prudently on behalf of the American people. 
Oversight should not be a partisan exercise, but a serious 
evaluation and accounting of how taxpayer dollars are being 
utilized by Government agencies and programs.
    Because of the historic nature of the Nation's financial 
crisis, Congress must go further in exercising oversight than 
ever before. This Congress must get into the weeds, root out 
waste, abuse and duplicative spending in federal programs, and 
reject ``more money'' solutions to our budgetary challenges.
    As part of this focus, the Appropriations Committee must 
maintain continual pressure on federal agency officials and 
department heads in order to promote accountability and 
responsibly by the agencies regarding the investment of 
American tax dollars. In addition, the Committee will utilize, 
where appropriate, information and testimony from non-
government entities to further scrutinize federal spending and 
the effectiveness and necessity of government programs.
    To accomplish these goals in the 112th Congress, the 
Committee on Appropriations intends to engage in the following 
oversight actions:
          (1) Subcommittee Hearings. The Appropriations 
        Committee holds itself to the highest standards for 
        analyses of the President's budget and supplemental 
        funding requests. During the previous Republican 
        majority, the Appropriations Committee held 304 
        hearings, heard testimony from 2,463 witnesses and 
        published 165 volumes of hearings totaling 155,056 
        pages.
          These subcommittee hearings will include testimony 
        from federal agency officials with responsibility over 
        the spending of taxpayer dollars, as well as non-
        government individuals and entities with relevant 
        budgetary information and analysis.
          (2) Investigations. In addition to open oversight 
        hearings, the Committee will also engage in in-depth, 
        comprehensive studies and investigations into agency 
        activities when it is deemed necessary. Specifically, 
        these investigations may include examination of the use 
        of discretionary funding for the American Reinvestment 
        and Recovery Act (ARRA), and for the Health Care Reform 
        legislation, as well as others. Many of these 
        investigations will be conducted by the Committee's 
        Surveys and Investigations staff, who are highly 
        qualified and experienced in the detailed examination 
        of federal budgets. In addition, the Committee will 
        continue to utilize the investigative expertise of the 
        Government Accountability Office and the Inspectors 
        General of the various Federal agencies. Under previous 
        Republican control of the House in the 109th Congress, 
        the Surveys and Investigations staff produced 43 
        studies and received 211 investigative reports from the 
        Government Accountability
        Office.
          (3) Appropriations Bills. The ``Power of the Purse'' 
        is the Committee's primary responsibility, as outlined 
        in Article I, Section 9, and Clause 7 of the U.S. 
        Constitution which states that ``no money shall be 
        drawn from the Treasury but in Consequence of 
        Appropriations made by Law.'' The manner in which the 
        Committee chooses to provide or withhold federal 
        funding will be undertaken with the utmost level of 
        care and concern over the prudent and responsible use 
        of taxpayer funds, based on its in-depth review of each 
        agencies programs and budget through its informed 
        analyses. The Committee will strictly adhere to its 
        responsibilities under the Congressional Budget Act by 
        ensuring its strict conformance with the total 
        discretionary spending levels established in the Budget 
        Resolution. The Committee will fulfill its 
        responsibility to allocate those funds among the 
        subcommittees based on the prioritization of limited 
        spending based on its analyses and
        reviews.
               INVESTIGATIONS CONDUCTED BY THE COMMITTEE


                 (112th Congress--1st and 2d Sessions)


                              (Semiannual)

    During the second session of the 112th Congress, the 
Committee initiated 42 studies and investigations covering a 
wide range of Federal agency activities. This is in addition to 
the 28 studies and investigations initiated during the first 
session. The Committee's Surveys and Investigations Staff (S&I) 
performed these studies to assist the Committee in fulfilling 
its oversight responsibilities and gathering the information it 
needs to make budget decisions.
    The various Subcommittees, in letters (known as directives) 
signed by the Chairman and Ranking Minority Member, originate 
requests for investigations; the request letters must be 
approved and signed by the Chairman and Ranking Minority Member 
of the Full Committee before an investigation is pursued.
    When the Committee directs S&I to conduct an investigation, 
the Director assembles a team of expert investigators. 
Competence and objectivity are the criteria for selection of 
individual investigators. Investigators include a small number 
of permanent staff, personnel on detail from Federal agencies, 
and independent contractors.
    Directives generally call for investigations to be 
completed within 3 to 6 months. Some studies include briefings 
to Subcommittee staff or result in several memos in addition 
to, or in lieu of, a final report. The format and frequency of 
reports are tailored to the needs of the Subcommittee.
    A catalog of all the investigations conducted from January 
of 2011 through June of 2012, listed by the requesting 
Subcommittee, follows.

    With respect to the above listing, it should be noted that 
since studies originate with the Subcommittees, any information 
developed during the course of an investigation is reported to 
the Subcommittee which requested such study or examination as 
well as the Chairman and Ranking Minority Member of the Full 
Committee. This information may be released for publication 
only when the Subcommittee so determines as provided by Section 
8 of the Committee's rules.

                      SUPPORT PROVIDED BY THE GAO

    In addition to the information made available to the 
Committee through its Surveys and Investigations Staff, the 
Committee also utilizes the resources of the Government 
Accountability Office. The Committee receives a copy of every 
GAO report addressed to the Congress. In recent years the scope 
of the GAO auditing and review capability has been enlarged to 
include management surveys. GAO has extracted from those 
reports and compiled in separate volumes a list of so-called 
``significant audit findings'' for special use by the Committee 
staff in the annual appropriations hearings. These findings 
relate to matters which are felt to require corrective action 
by the Committee's efforts, through legislation, or through 
administrative efforts. This compilation is designed to 
identify problem areas in an individual agency which might have 
applicability to other organizations.
    Additionally, the Committee frequently calls upon GAO to 
make special studies and investigations.
    A listing of some reports and staff studies by the 
Committee which were underway during the 112th Congress

                      COMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS


                            COMMITTEE RULES


          (Adopted for the 112th Congress on February 8, 2011)

    RESOLVED, That the rules and practices of the Committee on 
Appropriations, House of Representatives, in the One Hundred 
Eleventh Congress, except as otherwise provided hereinafter, 
shall be and are hereby adopted as the rules and practices of 
the Committee on Appropriations in the One Hundred Twelfth 
Congress.
    The foregoing resolution adopts the following rules:

Sec. 1: Power to Sit and Act

    (a) For the purpose of carrying out any of its functions 
and duties under Rules X and XI of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives, the Committee and each of its subcommittees is 
authorized:
          (1) To sit and act at such times and places within 
        the United States whether the House is in session, has 
        recessed, or has adjourned, and to hold such hearings 
        as it deems necessary; and
          (2) To require, by subpoena or otherwise, the 
        attendance and testimony of such witnesses and the 
        production of such books, reports, correspondence, 
        memorandums, papers, and documents as it deems 
        necessary.
    (b) The Chairman, or any Member designated by the Chairman, 
may administer oaths to any witness.
    (c) A subpoena may be authorized and issued by the 
Committee or its subcommittees under subsection (a)(2) in the 
conduct of any investigation or activity or series of 
investigations or activities, only when authorized by a 
majority of the Members of the Committee voting, a majority 
being present. The power to authorize and issue subpoenas under 
subsection (a)(2) may be delegated to the Chairman pursuant to 
such rules and under such limitations as the Committee may 
prescribe. Authorized subpoenas shall be signed by the Chairman 
or by any Member designated by the Committee.
    (d) Compliance with any subpoena issued by the Committee or 
its subcommittees may be enforced only as authorized or 
directed by the House.

Sec. 2: Subcommittees

    (a) The Majority Caucus of the Committee shall establish 
the number of subcommittees and shall determine the 
jurisdiction of each subcommittee.
    (b) Each subcommittee is authorized to meet, hold hearings, 
receive evidence, and report to the Committee all matters 
referred to it.
    (c) All legislation and other matters referred to the 
Committee shall be referred to the subcommittee of appropriate 
jurisdiction within two weeks unless, by majority vote of the 
Majority Members of the full Committee, consideration is to be 
by the full Committee.
    (d) The Majority Caucus of the Committee shall determine an 
appropriate ratio of Majority to Minority Members for each 
subcommittee. The Chairman is authorized to negotiate that 
ratio with the Minority; Provided, however, That party 
representation in each subcommittee, including ex-officio 
members, shall be no less favorable to the Majority than the 
ratio for the full Committee.
    (e) The Chairman and Ranking Minority Member of the full 
Committee are each authorized to sit as a member of all 
subcommittees and to participate, including voting, in all of 
the work of the subcommittees.

Sec. 3: Staffing

    (a) Committee Staff--The Chairman is authorized to appoint 
the staff of the Committee, and make adjustments in the job 
titles and compensation thereof subject to the maximum rates 
and conditions established in Clause 9(c) of Rule X of the 
Rules of the House of Representatives. In addition, he is 
authorized, in his discretion, to arrange for their specialized 
training. The Chairman is also authorized to employ additional 
personnel as necessary.
    (b) Assistants to Members:
          (1) Each Chairman and Ranking Minority Member of a 
        Subcommittee or the Full Committee, including a 
        Chairman Emeritus may select and designate one staff 
        member who shall serve at the pleasure of that Member.
          (2) Notwithstanding, (b)(1) The Chairman may 
        prescribe such terms and conditions necessary to 
        achieve a reduction in the number of Assistants to 
        Members previously designated by a Member of the 
        Committee prior to the adoption of the Rules of the 
        House establishing the Committee for the 112th 
        Congress.
          (3) Staff members designated under this subsection 
        shall be compensated at a rate, determined by the 
        Member, not to exceed 75 per centum of the maximum 
        established in Clause 9 (c) of Rule X of the Rules of 
        the House of Representatives.
          (4) Members designating staff members under this 
        subsection must specifically certify by letter to the 
        Chairman that the employees are needed and will be 
        utilized for Committee work.

Sec. 4: Committee Meetings

    (a) Regular Meeting Day--The regular meeting day of the 
Committee shall be the first Wednesday of each month while the

unnecessary in the light of the requirements of the Committee 
business schedule.
    (b) Additional and Special Meetings:
          (1) The Chairman may call and convene, as he 
        considers necessary, additional meetings of the 
        Committee for the consideration of any bill or 
        resolution pending before the Committee or for the 
        conduct of other Committee business. The Committee 
        shall meet for such purpose pursuant to that call of 
        the Chairman.
          (2) If at least three Committee Members desire that a 
        special meeting of the Committee be called by the 
        Chairman, those Members may file in the Committee 
        Offices a written request to the Chairman for that 
        special meeting. Such request shall specify the measure 
        or matter to be considered. Upon the filing of the 
        request, the Committee Clerk shall notify the Chairman.
          (3) If within three calendar days after the filing of 
        the request, the Chairman does not call the requested 
        special meeting to be held within seven calendar days 
        after the filing of the request, a majority of the 
        Committee Members may file in the Committee Offices 
        their written notice that a special meeting will be 
        held, specifying the date and hour of such meeting, and 
        the measure or matter to be considered. The Committee 
        shall meet on that date and hour.
          (4) Immediately upon the filing of the notice, the 
        Committee Clerk shall notify all Committee Members that 
        such special meeting will be held and inform them of 
        its date and hour and the measure or matter to be 
        considered. Only the measure or matter specified in 
        that notice may be considered at the special meeting.
    (c) Vice Chairman To Preside in Absence of Chairman--A 
member of the majority party on the Committee or subcommittee 
thereof designated by the Chairman of the full Committee shall 
be vice chairman of the Committee or subcommittee, as the case 
may be, and shall preside at any meeting during the temporary 
absence of the chairman. If the chairman and vice chairman of 
the Committee or subcommittee are not present at any meeting of 
the Committee or subcommittee, the ranking member of the 
majority party who is present shall preside at that meeting.
    (d) Business Meetings:
          (1) Each meeting for the transaction of business, 
        including the markup of legislation, of the Committee 
        and its subcommittees shall be open to the public 
        except when the Committee or the subcommittee 
        concerned, in open session and with a majority present, 
        determines by roll call vote that all or part of the 
        remainder of the meeting on that day shall be closed.
          (2) No person other than Committee Members and such 
        congressional staff and departmental representatives as 
        they may authorize shall be present at any business or 
        markup session which has been closed.
          (3) The Chairman shall announce the date, place, and 
        subject matter of each committee meeting for the 
        transaction of business, which may not commence earlier 
        than the third day on which members have notice 
        thereof, unless the Chairman, with the concurrence of 
        the Ranking Minority Member, or the Committee by 
        majority vote with a quorum present for the transaction 
        of business, determines there is good cause to begin 
        the meeting sooner, in which case the Chairman shall 
        make the announcement at the earliest possible date. An 
        announcement shall be published promptly in the Daily 
        Digest and made publicly available in electronic form.
          (4) At least 24 hours prior to the commencement of a 
        meeting for the markup of a bill or resolution, or at 
        the time an announcement is made pursuant to the 
        preceding subparagraph within 24 hours before such 
        meeting, the Chairman shall cause the text of such bill 
        or resolution to be made publicly available in 
        electronic form.
    (e) Committee Records:
          (1) The Committee shall keep a complete record of all 
        Committee action, including a record of the votes on

        result of each roll call vote shall be available for 
        inspection by the public during regular business hours 
        in the Committee Offices and also made available in 
        electronic form within 48 hours of such record vote. 
        The information made available for public inspection 
        shall include a description of the amendment, motion, 
        or other proposition, and the name of each Member 
        voting for and each Member voting against, and the 
        names of those Members present but not voting.
          (2) All hearings, records, data, charts, and files of 
        the Committee shall be kept separate and distinct from 
        the congressional office records of the Chairman of the 
        Committee. Such records shall be the property of the 
        House, and all Members of the House shall have access 
        thereto.
          (3) The records of the Committee at the National 
        Archives and Records Administration shall be made 
        available in accordance with Rule VII of the Rules of 
        the House, except that the Committee authorizes use of 
        any record to which Clause 3 (b)(4) of Rule VII of the 
        Rules of the House would otherwise apply after such 
        record has been in existence for 20 years. The Chairman 
        shall notify the Ranking Minority Member of any 
        decision, pursuant to Clause 3 (b)(3) or Clause 4 (b) 
        of Rule VII of the Rules of the House, to withhold a 
        record otherwise available, and the matter shall be 
        presented to the Committee for a determination upon the 
        written request of any Member of the Committee.
    (f) Availability of Amendments Adopted--Not later than 24 
hours after the adoption of amendment to a bill or resolution, 
the Chairman shall cause the text of any amendment adopted 
thereto to be made publicly available in electronic form.

Sec. 5: Committee and Subcommittee Hearings

    (a) Overall Budget Hearings--Overall budget hearings by the 
Committee, including the hearing required by Section 242 (c) of 
the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 and Clause 4 (a)(1) 
of Rule X of the Rules of the House of Representatives shall be 
conducted in open session except when the Committee in open 
session and with a majority present, determines by roll call 
vote that the testimony to be taken at that hearing on that day 
may be related to a matter of national security; except that 
the Committee may by the same procedure close one subsequent 
day of hearing. A transcript of all such hearings shall be 
printed and a copy furnished to each Member, Delegate, and the 
Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico.
    (b) Other Hearings:
          (1) All other hearings conducted by the Committee or 
        its subcommittees shall be open to the public except 
        when the Committee or subcommittee in open session and 
        with a majority present determines by roll call vote 
        that all or part of the remainder of that hearing on 
        that day shall be closed to the public because 
        disclosure of testimony, evidence, or other matters to 
        be considered would endanger the national security or 
        would violate any law or Rule of the House of 
        Representatives. Notwithstanding the requirements of 
        the preceding sentence, a majority of those present at 
        a hearing conducted by the Committee or any of its 
        subcommittees, there being in attendance the number 
        required under Section 5 (c) of these Rules to be 
        present for the purpose of taking testimony, (1) may 
        vote to close the hearing for the sole purpose of 
        discussing whether testimony or evidence to be received 
        would endanger the national security or violate Clause 
        2 (k)(5) of Rule XI of the Rules of the House of 
        Representatives or (2) may vote to close the hearing, 
        as provided in Clause 2 (k)(5) of such Rule. No Member 
        of the House of Representatives may be excluded from 
        nonparticipatory attendance at any hearing of the 
        Committee or its subcommittees unless the House of 
        Representatives shall by majority vote authorize the 
        Committee or any of its subcommittees, for purposes of 
        a particular series of hearings on a particular article 
        of legislation or on a particular subject of 
        investigation, to close its hearings to Members by the 
        same procedures designated in this subsection for 
        closing hearings to the public; Provided, however, That 
        the Committee or its subcommittees may by the same 
        procedure vote to close five subsequent days of 
        hearings.
          (2) Subcommittee chairmen shall coordinate the 
        development of schedules for meetings or hearings after

        chairmen with a view toward avoiding simultaneous 
        scheduling of Committee and subcommittee meetings or 
        hearings.
          (3) Each witness who is to appear before the 
        Committee or any of its subcommittees as the case may 
        be, insofar as is practicable, shall file in advance of 
        such appearance, a written statement of the proposed 
        testimony and shall limit the oral presentation at such 
        appearance to a brief summary, except that this 
        provision shall not apply to any witness appearing 
        before the Committee in the overall budget hearings.
          (4) Each witness appearing in a nongovernmental 
        capacity before the Committee, or any of its 
        subcommittees as the case may be, shall to the greatest 
        extent practicable, submit a written statement 
        including a curriculum vitae and a disclosure of the 
        amount and source (by agency and program) of any 
        Federal grant (or subgrant thereof) or contract (or 
        subcontract thereof) received during the current fiscal 
        year or either of the two previous fiscal years by the 
        witness or by an entity represented by the witness. 
        Such statements, with appropriate redactions to protect 
        the privacy of witnesses, shall be made publicly 
        available in electronic form not later than one day 
        after the witness appears.
    (c) Quorum for Taking Testimony--The number of Members of 
the Committee which shall constitute a quorum for taking 
testimony and receiving evidence in any hearing of the 
Committee shall be two.
    (d) Calling and Interrogation of Witnesses:
          (1) The Minority Members of the Committee or its 
        subcommittees shall be entitled, upon request to the 
        Chairman or subcommittee chairman, by a majority of 
        them before completion of any hearing, to call 
        witnesses selected by the Minority to testify with 
        respect to the matter under consideration during at 
        least one day of hearings thereon.
          (2) The Committee and its subcommittees shall observe 
        the five-minute rule during the interrogation of 
        witnesses until such time as each Member of the 
        Committee or subcommittee who so desires has had an 
        opportunity to question the witness.
    (e) Broadcasting and Photographing of Committee Meetings 
and Hearings--Whenever a hearing or meeting conducted by the 
full Committee or any of its subcommittees is open to the 
public, those proceedings shall be open to coverage by 
television, radio, and still photography, as provided in Clause 
(4)(f) of Rule XI of the Rules of the House of Representatives. 
Neither the full Committee Chairman or subcommittee chairman 
shall limit the number of television or still cameras to fewer 
than two representatives from each medium (except for 
legitimate space or safety, in which case pool coverage shall 
be authorized). To the maximum practicable, the Committee shall 
provide audio and video coverage of each hearing or meeting for 
the transaction of business in a manner that allows the public 
to easily listen to and view the proceedings and shall maintain 
the recordings of such coverage in a manner that is easily 
accessible to the public.
    (f) Subcommittee Meetings--No subcommittee shall sit while 
the House is reading an appropriation measure for amendment 
under the five-minute rule or while the Committee is in 
session.
    (g) Public Notice of Committee Hearings--The Chairman of 
the Committee shall make public announcement of the date, 
place, and subject matter of any Committee or subcommittee 
hearing at least one week before the commencement of the 
hearing. If the Chairman of the Committee or subcommittee, with 
the concurrence of the ranking minority member of the Committee 
or respective subcommittee, determines there is good cause to 
begin the hearing sooner, or if the Committee or subcommittee 
so determines by majority vote, a quorum being present for the 
transaction of business, the Chairman or subcommittee chairman 
shall make the announcement at the earliest possible date. Any 
announcement made under this subsection shall be promptly 
published in the Daily Digest and made publicly available in
