dc.description.abstractThis thesis takes a detailed look at the activity of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee in the area of Defense Procurement for the period, FY1970-1973. By analyzing House Reports and records of hearings, the reasons for the Subcommittee budgetary actions are identified and cataloged so as to determine true Subcommittee initiative. For the period considered, three aspects of Subcommittee activity are identified which contribute to a greater insight into Congressional budgetary behavior. First, the authorization process is shown to have had an increasing impact on the Defense Procurement Appropriation; second, it is shown that less than 40 percent of all Subcommittee recommendations are the result of true committee initiative; and third, the Navy has been the Service most affected both in number of decisions and dollar amount of reduction. With regard to the fiscal versus programmatic controversy, it is suggested that Subcommittee behavior toward Defense Procurement has been more fiscal than programmatic.
