|00:00:00||PRINTING, WE ACTUALLY REDUCED OUR REQUEST BY 50% TO SAVE MONEY, BUT ALSO TO GET ADEQUATE PRINTING OF WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS NEEDED.|
|00:00:10||THE OTHER BODY INITIALLY DECIDED, DETERMINED THEY DON'T NEED ANY MORE COPIES.|
|00:00:16||THEY HAVE NOW REASSESSED THAT, AND AT THE LAST MINUTE HAVE INDICATED TO US THAT THEY SEE THE NEED FOR DOING THAT AND HAVE PROMISED US THAT THEY WILL ACT ON OUR RESOLUTION.|
|00:00:29||SO THIS IS A HOPE THAT MAYBE THIS IS ONE THING THAT THEY CAN AGREE ON SENDING OUT OF THEIR BODY THIS YEAR AND OVER TO US.|
|00:00:39||BUT IN THE MEANTIME THE GENTLEMAN'S AMENDMENT IS APPROPRIATE.|
|00:00:43||LET US NOT LOSE THE CONSTITUTION OVER THIS.|
|00:00:45||THE CHAIR: THE GENTLEMAN FROM FLORIDA.|
|00:00:47||MR. CRENSHAW: MR. CHAIRMAN, I'D LIKE TO YIELD TWO MINUTES TO THE RANKING MEMBER,|
Mr. DANIEL E. LUNGREN of California. The gentleman is correct, we did pass a resolution over to the other body. It is customary that either body determine what their printing needs are, but we do have to normally have a resolution for it.
Under Mr. Harper's direction, with the Joint Committee on Printing, we actually reduced our request by 50 percent to save money, but also to give adequate printing of what we thought was needed. The other body initially decided that they didn't need any more copies. They have now reassessed that and at the last minute have indicated to us that they see the need for doing that and have promised us that they will act on our resolution.
So this is a hope that maybe this is one thing that they can agree on sending out of their body this year and over to us. But in the meantime, the gentleman's amendment is appropriate. Let us not lose the Constitution over this.
