Airline statistics program.--The Committee recommends increasing this program by $40,000. In June, 1995, RSPA signed a memorandum of understanding to transfer the airline statistics program and its associated positions to the bureau of transportation statistics (BTS). The Committee approves this transfer because it will put the responsibility for the compilation and analysis of airline economic data with the office that has broad authority to collect and analyze transportation statistics across a wide spectrum. The program's small field office in Anchorage, Alaska, which provides consumers with airline data related to essential air service and intra-Alaskan mail rate will continue under BTS. The additional $40,000 will provide working capital funds for this program after its transfer to the BTS. * * * * * The Committee recommends the following transfers between accounts: * * * * * Under Research and Special Programs Administration, Research and special programs: Provided, That $2,322,000 shall be transferred to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics for the expenses necessary to conduct activities related to Airline Statistics.
