TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 1977



Washington, D. C. The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 9:30 a.m., in Room 2175, Rayburn House Office Building, the Hon. Carl D. Perkins, presiding

Members present: Representatives Perkins, Blouin, Simon, Mottl, Le Fante, Heftel and Quie.

Staff present: John F. Jennings, majority counsel; Nancy L. Kober, staff assistant; and Christopher T. Cross, minority senior education consultant.

Chairman PERKINS. The Subcommittee on Elementary, Secondary and Vocational Education is today beginning two weeks of oversight hearings on the Impact Aid laws. The hearings are a continuation of hearings on H. R. 15, a bill to extend for five years certain elementary and secondary education programs that expire at the end of fiscal year 1978.

The Impact Aid programs under Public Law 81-874 and Public Law 81-815 provide financial assistance to local educational agencies in areas affected by Federal activities. Appropriations for the 874 and 815 programs totaled $793 million in fiscal year 1977 and will affect over 4500 public school districts.

In recent weeks there has been much discussion about the impact aid program, as the Appropriations Committee and the House dealt with funding for fiscal year 1978. The last time our committee looked at the program very comprehensively was prior to the Education Amendments of 1974. In the amendments included in that law, P.L. 93-380, Congress substantially revised the impact aid legislation. I feel it is important, as we prepare for reauthorization legislation next year, to again look at this program in depth and focus on the effects of those amendments.

Today we will be hearing from Mr. William Stormer, Director, Division of School Assistance in Federally Affected Areas in the Office of Education, who will provide an overview of the 874 programs and discuss the implementation of these 1974 amendments.
