STAFF MEMORANDUM REGARDING D.C. GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES The facts are that the annual operating budget of the District doubled in the past 5 years, so that the District Government's expenditures are over $1,000 for every man, woman and child in the District; and that the number of employees in the District Government jumped from 30,000 to over 40,000 in the same period, with the result that over 1 of every 20 District residents is on the District Government payroll. It is estimated that 70% to 80% of the District's budgets is spent on personnel, an area where economies should be achieved.

In the last session, The House District Committee recommended and the Congress approved a "personnel freeze" on the hiring of new employees in the District government, and made these comments in the Committee report accompanying the Revenue Act of 1969 which contained such restriction. (Excerpts From House Report 91-463, 91st Cong., 1st Sess., on the District of

Columbia Revenue Act of 1969, pp. 19-20)

FREEZE OF D.C. GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES Section 902 directs the freeze on the number of employees of the District of Columbia. Your Committee found that major budget increases are reflected in the number of employees. Sound fiscal practices require that expenditures be brought to a level consonant with revenue resources; consequently, your Committee recommends a ceiling on the number of employees, permanent, as well as temporary and part-time, in all departments and agencies of the District of Columbia except police, fire, and public schools. Information furnished to your Committee by the District of Columbia government indicates that the number of authorized permanent personnel increased from 31,944 in 1967 to 42,735 in 1970, or a 106.6 percent increase in 16 years. Pertinent charts, furnished by the District of Columbia government, follow:

The District government was dismayed, yet the freeze did achieve savings of several millions of dollars. So much so that this year the District Commissioner, of his own volition, for which your Committee commends him, ordered a 3-month freeze that netted a $4 million saving. So a regular freeze, and a real retrenchment in spending, could accomplish savings ad infinitum, and with no diminishing in the efficiency or achievement of the District Government.

Your Committee sincerely hopes that the Federal Office of Management and Budget will proceed with dispatch and determined effort to meet this delegation or direction, and thereby enable the District to avoid a financial catastrophe which is in the offing. It is the belief of your Committee that it is expressing the sentiments of both D.C. Appropriations Subcommittees as well as of both the District Legislative Committees in the Congress in reporting this proposal.

WASHINGTON AS COMPARED WITH OTHER CITIES 1 Washington has no parallel among cities of the United States in terms of percent of city employees to population. The following exhibit shows the Nation's Capital stands highest (at 5.29 percent) in proportion of city employees to population.
