WASHINGTON () - S e n a t e
hearings on a bill designed to
help Congress recapture control
of the government pursestrings
began yesterday with accusations
by witnesses and senators t h a t
President Nixon is abusing his
power by impounding appropria-
But a theme also emphasized
by committee members and wit-
nesses was that Congress must
reform its own procedures and
show greater discipline in hold-
ing down spending.
Sen. Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.),
one of the Government Opera-
tions Committee members par-
ticipating in the hearings, said
any recapture of power by Con-
gress "must satisfy the country
that it is accompanied by respon-
The bill under consideration,
sponsored by Sen. Sam E r v i n
(D-N.C.), and more than 50 oth-
er senators, would require the
President to notify Congress of
any impounding of appropriated
funds. Unless the Senate and the
House approved the impound-
ment within 60 days, it would
have to cease.
It is a part of a series of moves
aimed at overcoming what . is
widely regarded as the waning
power of Congress and the grow-
ing power of the executive
branch of the government.
Ralph Nader, who testified with
two attorneys for Public Citi-
zen, Inc., said Ervin's bill "falls
far short of what is necessary to
restore the constitutional bal-
ance in the spending process."
Nader said Congress should
pass legislation unequivocally
forbidding all impoudments and
requiring the President, if he
wants to reduce an appropriation,
to submit a bill to Congress for
processing just like a supple-
mental appropriation is handed
