(Unclassified - WPB) LEGISLATION Called Hilda Schreiber, OMB, and asked what position the Department of Justice and the FBI were taking on the I-Latch. Act amendments in conference. She said that the Administration was staying away from the conference committee because the Administration was opposed to the bill and did not want to have it suggested that various agencies could live with the bill if certain changes were made. I told her that we had an opportunity to approach the House Post Office and Civil Service Committee to inform them. that we would prefer to continue to be covered by the Hatch Act. She called me back later and gave me the go-ahead provided I make it clear that, we oppose the bill in. general. 21.

(Unclassified - THW) LIAISON I called Bob Boettcher, on the staff of the Subcommittee on International Organizations, House International Relations Committee. Boettcher had called. while I was out and was quite upset that I had not returned his phone calls. I told him that I had not done so as I was still. working on his request for a briefing on STAT I also told him that, frankly, we were having problems with the request as it dealt with operational matters and that the procedures to date on. this sort of thing was to refer the requester to the Chairman, Special Subcommittee on Intelligence, House Armed Services Com.nAttee. I told him I would be back to him as soon as I had an answer. I discussed the matter with Marian Czarnecki, Chief of Staff, House International Relations Committee, who said he would bring it to the attention of the Chairman of the Committee, Representative Thomas E. Morgan (D.., Pa.), and asked if there was any executive agreement with STAT. Czarnecki said Chairman Morgan would ask that: question and if one did exist it would be hard not to allow Chairman Donald M. Fraser (D., Minn.), Subcommittee on International Organizations, to at least see the agreement since such agreements are supposed to be filed with the House International Relations Committee. I told Czarnecki I would get back to him with the answer. When I called back to tell him there was no such agreement, he said he had been in touch with Chairman Morgan and Morgan indicated he would support our position if he is approached by Chairman Fraser. I spoke with Frank Slatinshek, Chief Counsel, House Armed Services Committee, and relayed the above to him and told him that if he had no objection I would call Boettcher and advise him that this request involved operational matters and suggest that if Mr. Fraser felt it necessary he call Chairman Lucien N. Nedzi (D. , Mich. ), Special Subcommittee on Intelligence. Slatinshek approved and said he had brought the request to Nedzi?s attention so that he would be somewhat prepared if Chairman Fraser called Chairman Nedzi. I then called Boettcher and so advised him. 19. (Unclassified -? WPB) LEGISLATION I phoned the House Post Office and Civil Service Committee and informed Bob Lockhart that the Agency supported the Dole amendment to continue applying the Hatch, Act to the CIA.
