104th Congress, 1st Session - - - - - - - - - - - - House Document 104-122 VETO OF H.R. 1854 __________ MESSAGE from THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES transmitting HIS VETO OF H.R. 1854, A BILL MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING SEPTEMBER 30, 1996; AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT> October 6, 1995.--Message and accompanying bill ordered to be printed To the House of Representatives: I am returning today without my approval H.R. 1854, the ``Legislative Branch Appropriations Bill, FY 1996.'' H.R. 1854 is, in fact, a disciplined bill, one that I would sign under different circumstances. But, at this point, Congress has completed action on only two of the 13 FY 1996 appropriations bills: this one and H.R. 1817, the Military Construction appropriations bill. Thus, the vast majority of Federal activities lack final FY 1996 funding and are operating under a short-term continuing resolution. I appreciate the willingness of Congress to work with my Administration to produce an acceptable short-term continuing resolution before completing action on the regular, full-year appropriations bills for FY 1996. I believe, however, that it would be inappropriate to provide full-year regular funding for Congress and its offices while funding for most other activities of Government remains incomplete, unresolved, and uncertain. As I said two months ago, I don't think Congress should take care of its own business before it takes care of the people's business. I stated that if the congressional leadership were to follow through on its plan and to send me its own funding bill before finishing work on the rest of the budget, I would veto it. I am now following through on that commitment. I urge the Congress to move forward promptly on completing the FY 1996 appropriations bills in a form that I can accept. William J. Clinton. The White House, October 3, 1995. H.R. 1854 One Hundred Fourth Congress of the United States of America, at the First Session, Begun and Held at the City of Washington on Wednesday, the Fourth Day of January, One Thousand Nine Hundred and Ninety-five <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>
