Both TtVMUT Secretary David y. Kennedy and Budget Director Robert P.

'. Kennedy and Mayo both testified before tbe House Ways and Means Committee, siving the Administration's stronsest word yet on tbe oulIOok for tbe surtax, impwcd last year to pay for rising Vietnam war costs and to fight inflation. Said Ma}-o: "In the absence of a signfficant change in the level of our Southeast Asia in\-olvefflenl or in the ecooomlc outlook, extension of the surcharge and excises clearly seems required — along with budget nut lax- restraint — to help stem inflatioo." Totibing on President Nixon's plan for a redefined national debt ceiling. Kennedy said. "As best we can now look ahead, we anticipate that tbe surtax will need to be retained to maintain an appropriate budgeury posture." The secretary said the Admteistration bad to consider the consequcoccs of expiration of tbe tax. Kennedy said revenues from tbe surtax in the fiscal year starting July 1 were estimated at SS billion and for the current fiscal jxar the revenues would be SSOO million short of that figure. Thus. Kennedy said, taking away the surtax would mean anticipated surptu-Ms in the^ budget for this fiscal year and next fkcal year would turn into big deficits. word yet that President NLxon likely would ask that it be retained. Kennedy appeared before the tax writers to explain the Administration's proposal for a "redefined" national debt ceiling of S300 billion. Actually, critics said the new ceiling being asked is S382 billion. $17 bBlion over the present $385 union ceiling. Rep. Charles A. Vanik.
