MERIT SYSTEM AND CLASSIFICATION EXTENSION

THURSDAY, MARCH 23, 1939

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
COMMITTEE ON CIVIL SERVICE,

Washington, D. C. The Committee this day met at 10:20 a. m., Hon Robert Ramspeck (chairman) presiding.

The CHAIRMAN. Gentlemen, we are meeting this morning to consider H. R. 960 and I think it might be well to state in the beginning that this bill contains in substance that part of the reorganization bill of last year providing for extension of the Civil Service law and Classification Act but eliminating that part of the reorganization bill which dealt with the set-up of the administrative agency to handle civil service. I will ask the reporter to put a copy of this bill in the record at this point.

TITLE II-EXTENSION OF CLASSIFICATION ACT SEC. 3. (a) Subject to the limitations contained in this section, whenever the President, after such classification and compensation surveys or investigations as he may direct the Commission to undertake, and upon consideration of the Commission's resulting reports and recommendations, shall find and declare that an extension of the provisions of the Classification Act of 1923, as amended, to any offices or positions in the agencies of the Government is necessary to the more efficient operation of the Government, he may be Executive order extend the
