Approved For Release 2006/08/09: CIA-RDP77M00.144R001100220003-6 OLC 76-3750 23 December 1976 MEMORANDUM FOR THE RECORD SUBJECT: S. Res. 586--A Resolution Reorganizing the Committee System of the, Senate 1. S. Res. 586 was submitted on 15 October 1976 by Senators Stevenson (D., Ill.) and Brock (R., Tenn.), with 11 cosponsors. According to a memorandum prepared by W. Clark McFadden, of the Senate Armed Services Committee, a number of Senators intend that S. Res. 586 be taken up as the first order of business in the 95th Congress. According to a staffer on the Senate Rules and Administration Committee, Senator Stevenson is expected to resubmit the Resolution on 4 January; hearings already have been scheduled by the Rules Committee for 5 and 7 January. 2. Whether or not the Resolution goes anywhere, and regardless of changes that may be made to it, there are several interesting aspects of the Resolution that are or may be relevant to this Office's activities and responsibilities vis-a-vis congressional committees. (A copy of the Resolution is attached.) a. The Senate would be required to decide, before the end of the 95th Congress, whether S. Res. 400 and the Select Committee on Intelligence established thereunder should remain in force. The new Committee on Governmental Affairs would report to the Senate by 1 July 1978 "a resolution concerning the disposition of the jurisdic- tion and functions of the Select Committee on Intelligence." If the Senate thus decides that intelligence oversight is best handled by some means other than that currently employed, the present Select Committee would be dissolved early in 1979. The jurisdiction of the Select Committee is unchanged by S. Res. 586. b. According to the Report of the Temporary Select Committee to Study the Senate Committee System (chaired by Senator Stevenson and co-chaired by Senator Brock), that Committee would assign to the Foreign Relations Committee comprehensive policy oversight for national security"; the Armed Services Committee would be given the same mandate for "the common defense."

The Committee on Armed Services also would gain jurisdiction over national security aspects of atomic energy, and joint jurisdiction with Foreign Relations over foreign military sales. According to Clark McFadden, for the first time Foreign Relations would gain explicit, though not exclusive, jurisdiction over foreign military assistance. d. The Foreign Relations Committee also would be required to study and review "matters relating to the national security policy of the United States, and report thereon from time to time. " ? e. The new Committee on Governmental Affairs would gain jurisdiction over matters now not within the purview of Government Operations, including civil service, Federal buildings, and all "Government information including freedom of information." f. The jurisdiction of the Appropriations Committee would be essentially as now. The Temporary Select Committee rejected proposals to return the appropriations function to the proper standing committees. g. Overall, the number of standing committees would be reduced to 14, with one select committee; there would be no joint committees. Senators would be limited to serving on two standing committees, one additional committee assignment, five subcommittee assignments, one committee chairmanship, and one subcommittee chairmanship on each committee. Further, in appointing Senators to committee positions, consideration will be given to the legislators present seniority and assignments. h. . The Secretary of the Senate would maintain a computerized schedule of all committee and subcommittee activities. i. New scheduling rules would restrict the times at which committee meetings could occur; roll call votes normally would not be in order before 2: 00 p.m.; and certain questions as to committee jurisdiction would be subject Distribution: 1,4 Each OLC'er , w/att OLC Subject, w/att 1 - OLC Chrono, w/o att Office of Legislative Counsel Approved For Release 2006/08/0b : CIA-RDP77M00144R001100220003-6 , (:ktober 4f0166N/91A46941%:TO 100220003-6 S 18241 2Wigrged For Rele% In view of the Senate's action in at- tempting to vacate its passage of S. 3553, there is doubt that S. 3553 has been prop- erly enrolled, and therefore I am sep- arately approving II.R. 11315 and must withhold my approval from S. 3553.
