PAGI THRE1 Senate to Consider McClellan Bill for Check on U.S. Spending By JOE HALt WASHINGTON m—The Senate today takes up a bill designed to give Congress a more effective check on federal spending. The measure, sponsored by Sen. McClellan <D-Ark), has strong support in both major parties and is expected to win approval easily. The bill would set up an 18- member joint congressional committee on the budget and give it a staff similar to the highly trained technical group which now works (or the Senate and House tax-writing committees. On the Joint commlUec would be five members each from the Senate and House Appropriations Committees, and four eacn from the Government Operations Committees. Sponsors of the bill contend tile Appropriations Committees do not now have the time or the staff to check on the tremendous federal budgets being sent to Congress. These are running eight to 10 times Ihe size of pre-World War II budgets. The Senate Government Operations Committee, headed by Me- Clellan, Mid: • "The result Is that many millions of dollars have been appropriated in excess of the actual requirements and needs to properly carry on the functions of the federal government. 1 "Thaw excesses have made worse the Inrge recurring deficits which must be passed on In the form of new taxes to the already overburdened taxpayers, and unless stopped may eventually lead to national bankruptcy." The staff of the Joint committee on the budget would have Hie duty of checking details of nil federal operations to give the Appropriations Committees data on each budget item. It also would be; assigned to: 1. Btudy prMp«etiv« Ux revenues I so that "a well-considered llscal program may be devised to hold expenditures to the minimum." 2. Make recommendations to the proper congressional committees "so that they may eliminate wasteful practices and correct deviations from programs authorized by Ihe Congress." 3. Recommend cutbacks tn government programs "when tn "the public interest." 4. Put a prlce-Ug on all spending program authorized by Congress. McClellfin's committee also plans to offer a floor amendment which woud require the President to submit an aternative. balanced budget in years when his primary budget forecasts a deficit. Such a plan would apply In the present congressional session. Bus Strike Is Ended BIRMINGHAM, Ala. im — Birmingham Transit Company buses and streetcars rolled again today Rfter A four-day strike.
