Mr. Slack. The total request for fiscal year 1977 is $565,377,000, an increase of $51,154,000 over the appropriations for fiscal year 1976. The request is contained in three separate appropriations. It proposes a merger of the "Construction" appropriation with the "Operations, research and facilities" appropriation.
