B-130733 March 6, 1957

Honorable Pereival F. Brundage Director, Bureau of the Budget

Dear Mr. Brundage:

The Assistant Director for Legislative Reference, by letter of February 13, 1957, requested our views on proposed legislation submitted by the Civil Service Commission, designed to amend section 202 of the General Government Matters Appropriations Act, 1957, relating to the employment of aliens in the continental United States.

The proposed legislation, in our ipinion, would better meet the needs of the Government concerning the employment of aliens, than does section 202 of the appropriation act referred to. While certain obsolete provisions of section 202, excepting from the operation of that section nationals of certain foreign countries, are aliminated, the area of employment as authorized by the proposed legislation is enlarged without the sacrifice of the necessary restriction. Under appropriate Civil Service Commission regulations, we feel that its enactment into law would not jeopardize the interests of the United States.

We concur in the Commission's view that the proposal should be enacted as permanent legislation and recommend appropriate language changes to accomplish that end.

Sincerely yours,

JOSEPH CAMPBELL Comptroller General of the United States
