Mr. NATCHER. We take up next Special Programs in the Department of Education. We have before the committee Dr. Lawrence F. Davenport, the Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education.
Doctor, who do you have with you now at the table for Special Programs?
Mr. DAVENPORT. Ms. Sally Christensen, Director, Budget Service, Office of Planning, Budget and Evaluation; Lawrence Brown, Director, Division of Elementary, Secondary, and Vocational Analysis, Office of Planning, Budget and Evaluation; Lois Bowman, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education, and Carol Cichowski, Director, Division of Special Education, Rehabilitation and Research Analysis, Office of Planning, Budget and Evaluation.
Mr. NATCHER. Dr. Davenport, your statement will be placed in the record in its entirety. We will be pleased to hear from you.
Mr. DAVENPORT. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
We appreciate this opportunity to appear before you to represent the fiscal year 1986 budget request for the special programs account. The request for this account totals $647,900,000, a decrease of $30,200,000 from the 1985 revised level.
This request recognizes the urgent need to curtail expenditures to control the Federal deficit while maintaining the Federal Government's commitment to helping States and localities improve the quality of education.
At our 1986 request level, we would continued Chapter 2 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act and the new Science and Mathematics Education program at their 1985 appropria
tion levels. In addition, we would over the next two years phase out funding for Training and Advisory Services under Title IV of the Civil Rights Act.
Our budget also proposes termination of direct Federal support for a number of categorical programs that are eligible for funding from other sources or that do not reflect an appropriate Federal role in education.
Thank you very much, Mr. Chairman.
