other hard pressed communities, through improvement of their public facilities, to become better places to live and work.

You see, you are doubling the ante in the bill that is now before you. You would include not only redevelopment areas, but you would also include the labor surplus areas which have been such for over a year, to help these and other hard pressed communities to become better places to live.

Mr. CRAMER. If you put all of this $600 million that you are asking for in the some 900 communities that you say are in your area redevelopment program

Mr. BATT. No, sir, about half of them. As I say, in terms of population and labor force and unemployment, about half of this is included in the area redevelopment program that we are related to, and about half of it is related to the labor surplus areas of a year or more.

Mr. CRAMER. All right. Both of them. It would mean $750,000 per area.

Now, how much help is that going to be!

Mr. Batt. Well, sir, of course, this is not the way the cookie crumbles.

All of these programs require very substantial local initiation and local participation, and the areas which come in and participate and need the things most, these are the ones which

Mr. CRAMER. I am talking about the legislation, the legislation authorizing you to go into public facilities of any kind not presently financed, to give 50 percent in grants, and if the city or local community cannot afford it, to put another 50 percent in in the form of loans.

Now, if they went into every area with $600 million, it would be
Mr. BATT. Well, sir-
Mr. CRAMER. Let me finish my question.
Mr. BATT. Yes, sir.

Mr. CRAMER. It would mean $750,000 per area. Now, that is peanuts—$600 million is not going to do the job, and you know it.

Mr. BATT. Well, sir, if you think the committee would like to increase the amount of money, of course, that might be well worthwhile.

Mr. CRAMER. I guarantee you this much, if we pass the bill for $600 million, the other body would pass twice that amount.

Mr. BATT. The President has not asked for more than $600 million, and the Council of Economic Advisers testified to that point, and they feel that this would create a very substantial amount of jobs and would have a very useful countereffect.

I can guarantee you, from what we know of the needs of these areas, which are reflected in the overall economic development plans that they have submitted to us, that loans would be enough to more than use up the $600 million, in useful projects with long-term possibilities.

Mr. CRAMER. I would like for you to submit for the record a list of those public utility projects which you find under section 8 of the Area Pedevelopment Act have been obligated.

I would like to be submitted for the record that information, including the date obligated, the type of project, the cost, the amount of Federal funds, the location, and the status of completion.

Mr. Bart. I would be happy to do so.
