EXECUTIVE AND LEGISLATIVE
Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 10 a.m., in room 1501B, Longworth House Office Building, Hon. William L. Dawson (chairman) presiding.
Present: Representatives William L. Dawson, Chet Holifield, Henry S. Reuss, Benjamin S. Rosenthal, Clarence J. Brown, and John N. Erlenborn.
Also present: Elmer W. Henderson, subcommittee counsel; Louis I. Freed, investigator; James A. Lanigan, general counsel, Committee on Government Operations; J. P. Carlson, minority counsel; and Raymond T. Collins, minority professional staff, Committee on Government Operations.
Chairman Dawson. This meeting of the Subcommittee on Executive and Legislative Reorganization has been called to consider H.R. 4623, a bill introduced by me at the request of the President. It will amend the Reorganization Act of 1949 by repealing the time limitation on the authority given the President to submit reorganization plans to the Congress under the Reorganization Act of 1949. Heretofore, this authority has been extended for intervals of 2 years, with one exception of 4 years. This legislation, therefore, has the effect of making permanent the President's authority under the act which would expire on June 1, 1965.
As members of this subcommittee well know, the President may submit reorganization plans to the Congress which will go into effect after 60 days unless either the House or the Senate vetoes the plan by a simple majority vote. We have been advised that the President contemplates reorganization of the various departments and agencies to produce economies and efficiency in the Government.
In his message of February 3, 1965, to the Congress, submitting the draft bill, President Johnson said:
With only a few lapses since 1932, authority generally similar to that conferred by the present Reorganization Act has been available to the Presidents then in office. The usefulness of the authority to transmit reorganization plans to the Congress and the continuing need for such authority to carry out fully the purposes of the Reorganization Act have been clearly demonstrated.
