Approved For Release 2008/05/27 :CIA-RDP80B01676R001400030029-5 THE DEPUTY SECRETARY OF DEFENSE wasw~NOror~, o. c. so3o~ ' Honorable John A. Mc Cone Director of Central Intelligence Washington, D. C. your letter of February 5, 1965 refers to the Congressional hearings for the NRO budget in FY 1966. Modifications to the pro- cedure followed last year are; of course, possibleo As you know, .last year Charlie Hitch and Harold Brown presented the budget to Congressional committees and Dr. McMillan did not participate in the presentation. Since the presentation and substantiation of this ?budget is the responsibility of the executive agent, we had planned to follow the same procedure this year, We planned to ask Brown ~,nd Hitch to do the presenting and the supporting again and to keep , the DNRO in the background to reduce the number of detailed questions that could be asked. The modification of last year?s procedure to include members of the CIA in these discussions may well be useful. Presence of membe~:s of your organization could be helpful in responding to any questions which may arise relative to the financial management, accounting and contracting for that portion of the N~RP funds which are being administered by the CIA. On the other hand, we should be careful lest, by modifying our procedure, we encou-~age pro- tracted hearings in the area of appropriations. As you correctly stated, separate generalized discussions were held with you, Senator Russell, and elements, of the Department of Defense; it might well be that continuation of this procedure would be better. Approved For Release 2008/05/27 :CIA-RDP80B01676R001400030029-5 Approved For Release 2008/05/27 :CIA-RDP80B01676R001400030029-5 We should separately examine the clearance situation for such projects as the SR-7I, YF-12A, J-58 engine and 41? weather satellite. I believe that these items will be subjected to a careful examination by broader elements of the committee than heretofore. For this reason, information regarding clearances of members of these com- 25X1 mittees is essential fox DOD witnesses to properly plan their ansv.~ers. Please let us have ,such information as saon as is convenient. Approved For Release 2008/05/27 :CIA-RDP80B01676R001400030029-5 It seems to me that your suggestion of adding CIA personnel ~to the DOD presentation of the NRP to the Congress so as to empha~ size the joint character of the program is a healthy one. I would suggest that, together with information regarding clearance of the . elements of Congress, you will let us know who will represent CIA, when Mr. Hitch and Dr. Brown will be called by the Appropriation , Gommittees. It may well be that, if this new procedure is employed, we will also ask Dr. McMillan to be present; your opinion on this whole issue will -~e greatly appreciated.
