ANALYZATION or BENEFIT-COST RATIO or WATER REsoURcE DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS Mr. PROXMIRE (for himself and Mr. LAUSCHE) submitted the following resolution (S. Res. 374) ; which was referred

to the Committee on Interior and Insular Ail airs:

Whereas the sense of the Senate, stated in S. Res. 281, Eighty-fourth Congress, and in S. Res. 148, Eighty-fifth Congress, is that the Congress will continue to exercise its constitutional powers to encourage the comprehensive conservation, development, and utilization of the land and water resources of the Nation, and that reports to the Congress in support of authorization of projects for such purposes should (1) include evaluations made in accordance with criteria prescribed by the Congress, and (2) fully disclose the results of studies and analyses of the potential utilizations, costs, allocations, payout, benefits, both direct and indirect;

Whereas previous statements of congressional intent have been silent on the important matter of the proper discount rate (the interest rate on the Federal investment) to be used in such economic analysis of the benefits and costs of prospective water resource development projects, in spite of the fact that a small change in the present discount factor could significantly alter the benefit-cost ratio of many projects, thus affecting the choice of alternative projects;

Whereas if public funds are to be used to best advantage, the most economically feasible projects should be selected for authorization, so that funds are not denied to prospective water resource projects which would yield larger economic benefits over the years, and to insure that public funds are properly allocated to all private and public uses;

Whereas the proper choice of the best projects from many alternative uses requires that a discount rate be used which is realistic in terms of the public interest and all economic factors;

Whereas it is important that any rate of discount used for these important economic choices should be determined by the Congress;

Whereas the estimation of benefits for any project for any future time period includes the evaluation of many uncertainties and imponderables, and the longer the time period for which the projection is being made, the more uncertain the estimated benefits will be;

Whereas the uncertainties associated with a longer period of analysis indicate that the discount rate should be higher so that the more uncertain benefits of the more distant future are not given the same weight as the more certain benefits which are estimated to come about in the near future in determining the selection of alternative water resource development projects; and

Whereas the present policy is to use the same discount rate, which currently is approximately 2.5 per centum, in analyzing the benefit-cost ratio of projects where the period of analysis is more than 50 years and as much as 100 years and of projects where such period is less than 50 years: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That it is the sense of the Senate that in cases where the period of analysis with respect to the useful life of a water resource development project is more that: 50 years the discount rate used for the purpose of such analysis should be greater than in cases where such period is 50 years or less and should be at least equal to the average rate of interest payable by the Treasury on interest bearing marketable securities of the United States outstanding on the last day of the fiscal year preceding such analysis whzch on such day had 15 years or more X'f'nllillllllei before reaching maturity, such average rau- being currently approximately 4 per centum.
