Approved For Release 2000/09/08 : CIA-RDP78-06365A001200030019-7 DD/S 58-2877 Executive Registry 10-5195/1 26 July 19 58 The Honorable Maurice H. Stans Director Bureau of the Budget Washington 25, D. C. In my letter to you of 2 July 1958, it was indicated that the Agency would not object further to approval of Enrolled Bill, S. 385, by the President if it were assured that the Agency would be granted the broadest possible exceptions when the bill became law. Accordingly, I am enclosing a proposed directive for signature by the President designating the Agency, its officers and employees as excepted from certain provisions of the Government Employees Training Act, Public Law 85-507, approved 7 July 1958. COPY Certain provisions of Public Law 85-507 require that reports of training activities be sent to the Civil Service Commission for inclusion in overall reports to the Congress. I believe that disclosure of the information which would be required if the Agency were not excepted would adversely affect the national interest and the operations of CIA. Further, such disclosure would conflict with my responsibility under Section 102 (d) (3) of the National Security Act of 1947, as amended, ". . . for protecting intelligence sources and methods from unauthorized disclosure..'.' Certain of the reporting requirements are additionally in conflict with Section 7 of the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949, as amended, which further implements Section 102 (d) (3) of the National Security Act of 1947, as amended. The Agency has carefully considered the specific provisions of Public Law 85-507, and I recommend Presidential exception be secured in accord with the enclosed draft directive. I request this matter receive the earliest possible consideration in order that Agency plans and pro- grams for its various training activities can continue without interruption. Approved For Release 2000/09/08 : CIA-RDP78-06365A001200030019-7 Approved For Release 2000/09/08 : CIA-RDP78-06365A0012000301119-7 The Agency must also have the opportunity to consider the effect that Public Law 85-507, with approved Presidential exceptions, will have on its training program in order to determine at an early time whether further legislation on this subject is necessary. If further information is desired, I suggest your representatives contact my Legislative Counsel, STATINTL Sincerely, Allen W.
