Approved For Release 2001/08/30 : CIf9Pq0380R000600170018-3 Tuesday - 20 November 1973 25X1A 4. (Confidential - GLC) Met with Guy McConnell, Senate Appropria- tions Committee staff, and gave him a paper prepared by OPPB, on the status of the cuts imposed by the House Appropriations Committee to the Agency's budget. I told McConnell again that the subject of how to handle the = million for salary increases was still up in the air but we were relying on him and Ralph Preston, House Appropriations Committee staff, to work this out. I said we would be happy to discuss it further any time he wished. He said the Senate Committee would probably focus on this issue next week. I briefed McConnell on the inquiry we had received from Mark Bender, Congressional Quarterly, for our views on three questions he posed regarding the Agency's relationships with the Congress and the impact of such things as the Bay of Pigs, ITT/Chile, and the Watergate. I told McConnell that Bil:L Colby preferred not to have us speak to Bender for the record on this subject, but I provided McConnell with some material we had prepared which he might want to use in any future conversations he might have with Bender on the subject. Spoke briefly with McConnell about the matter of the Renegotiation Board's interest in some of the surplus profits of the sale of SAT. McConnell said he thought if we could legally retain these funds and turn them back into the Agency Reserve account he thought we should do so. 25X1A 5.

(Confidential - GLC) called to say that it is his informa- tion from contacts in the Office of Public Safety, AID, that the House/Senate conferees have limited the application of the amendment in th. Foreign Aid b which relates to foreign police training exclusively to OPS and all other 4000- restrictions have been eliminated. I told him this confirmed information we had received from House Foreign Affairs Committee sources. Approved For Release 2001/08/30 : CIA-RDP75B00380R000600170018-3
