CHIEF COUNSEL AND STAFF DIRECTOR COMMITTEE ON GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS SUBCOMMITTEE ON INTERGOVERNMENTAL RELATIONS (PURSUANT TO SEC. 5, S. RES. 241, 11D CONGRESS, 2D SESSION) WASHINGTON, D.C. 20510 June 24, 1974 Honorable William E. Colby Director Central Intelligence Agency Washington, D. C. 20505 Dear Mr. Colby: ALVIN FROM. STAFF DIRECTOR 357 R'JSSELL BUILDING (202) 225-0773 The Subcommittee on intergovernmental Relations has completed its first set of oversight hearings on the workings of Executive Order 11652 and the security classi- fication system. I want to take this occasion to express my appreciation to you and the Central Intelligence Agency for the full cooperation the subcommittee received in con- ducting its inquiry from General Counsel John Warner and his staff. His testimony of May 29 reflected the attention given to classification problems throughout the Agency and the amount of hard work going into the effort to reform ingrained attitudes toward security and public information. It is my intention to continue and extend these oversight hearings this year and next, and I would like very much to solicit your further assistance in the study. Specifically, I would appreciate it if the Agency could forward to the subcommittee on a regular basis the four quarterly reports on authorized classifiers, classifica- tion abuses, unauthorized disclosures, and mandatory review requests and the quarterly siLmmary report it transmits to the Interagency Classification Review Committee. Please feel free to delete from those reports any classified -- material or any identification of specific individuals you feel would be inappropriate for the public record. In general, I hope the subcommittee staff will enjoy in-the future the same kind of cooperation in this Approved For Release 2003/04/29 : CIA-RDP84-0078OR006100110020-3 Approved For Release 2003/04/29 : CIA-RDP84-0078OR006100110020-3 William E.

And, of course, I look forward to further evidence of progress in the Agency in implementing the programs and outlook on classification which Mr. Warner so well described. help.
