BRIEFING Norvill Jones, Chief of Staff, Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called concerning the security level of the briefing this afternoon in order to determine whether S. Res. 60 designees would be permitted to sit in. The prepared testimony is at the Secret level but I got his agreement that if the Director felt it was necessary to get into compartmented data Jones would move to clear the room of those staffers who didn't possess the necessary access clearance, including all personal staffers. Moreover, Jones felt that this wide participation permitted to staffers in this instance is not to be considered a precedent for future CIA or DCI briefings. 16. LIAISON Sandy Carden, in the office of Senator Paul S. Sarbanes (D. , Md. ), called for assistance in replying to a letter from a constituent complaining about the CIA oil reports on the basis that the Agency had no business in such matters. I explained that such reports were in the process long before they were made public and that the Agency does have an interest in foreign economic developments as an important part of its foreign intelligence responsibilities.

I suggested the following language: "This change is to account for those circumstances where employment is not effected pursuant to Section 444(B) of the Foreign Service Act of 1946 but rather pursuant to Section 8 of the CIA Act of 1949." He thought this explanation would be very helpful. DD/OP, concurred in the language. 25X1 Apprnvpd r Release 20;, CIA-RDP80-00941A000300050010-7 L. 25X1 Approved F-1 Release 2005/1 RDP80-00941 A000300050010-7 Journal - Office of Legislative Counsel Monday - 20 June 1977 Page 5 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 21. I BRIEFING Jack Brady, Chief of Staff, House International Relations Committee, called to raise the possibility of an update briefing under Hughes/Ryan for the Committee, explaining that such a briefing could not be limited to the seven members of the Subcommittee on International Security and Scientific Affairs but rather that all 37 members of the full Committee would have to be invited. We then discussed the fact that some of the House oversight resolutions would address this subject by defining for the purposes of the Hughes/ Ryan amendment that the House International Relations Committee means a subcommittee thereof and by providing the subcommittee with authorization to exempt such briefings from Rule XI. Mr. Brady will be back in touch with us. 22.

LIAISON Pete Bonner, Senate Appropriations Committee staff, called to say that the issue involving assistance to foreign organizations was becoming a heated one in the Committee on the subject of jurisdiction between the Subcommittee on Foreign Operations and the Subcommittee on State, Justice, Commerce and the Judiciary. Bonner was concerned that our paper on this subject might get undue interest. In this connection, he mentioned an article by Evans and Novack on this subject in Saturday's paper.

She appreciated my checking and said she would see what she could find out and be back in touch. 25X1 A13pToved For lease 2005/11, RDP80-00941 A000300050010-7 Approved For Release 2005/ -RDP80-00941 A000300050010-7 Journal - Office of Legislative Counsel Monday - 20 June 1977 Page 7 25X1 29. LIAISON Jim Gehrig, staff member, Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Subcommittee on Science, Technology and Space, called and asked if we could find out why the Advisory Group on Space Systems of the President's office of Science and Technology Policy is having a closed meeting on 6-7 July. He wants to attend and is concerned that they are having a closed meeting since he feels their meetings should be open. I told him I would try to find out; however, the most we can do is certify his clearances to the Advisory Group if they check the CIA Central Registry for clearances held, but it is up to the Group as to whether or not they will allow him to attend. 30. LIAISON Called Hilda Schreiber, OMB, and informed her that the Director had signed the letter to the Director of OMB commenting on the impact to the Agency if the mandatory age requirements are struck from the CIA Retirement Act.
