Mr. BOLAND. This shows a request for fiscal 1962 of $3,500,000. It also shows that the Federal cost on this project has gone up $1,900,000, but the local interests cost has gone down by $2,200,000.
How does this happen? Why is this so?
General FLEMING. The increase in the Federal cost is due to higher price levels, and about $1 million for restoration of complete and partially complete reaches damaged by heavy rains and prolonged wet weather conditions. About $228,000 due to more detailed planning and design, and $240,000 for engineering and design, and supervision and administration.
The decrease in the local contribution is the amount they have been able to save themselves on the road relocations. In other words, the decrease in the local contribution is the decrease on their actual experience of expenses on the purchase of land and making of relocations.
Mr. BOLAND. Are there any questions?

Local interests are required to pay the .cost of the dam and reservoir allocated to water conservation and stream-flow regulation, and to hydroelectric power if power facilities are provided by local interests. The construction costs allocated to local interests shall be not less than $1,400,000, which amount shall be contributed by local interests during construction, and the remainder of the construction costs allocated to local interests shall be repaid with interest at the rate of 2-1/2 per cent per annum within fifty years. Local interests are also required to pay allocated portion of the operation and maintenance costs.
STATUS OF LOCAL COOPERATION: A formal contract with the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority embodying the requirements of local cooperation was approved by the Chief of Engineers on 24 October 1957. The GBRA has contributed $700,000 to date.
CCUPARISON OF FEDERAL COST ESTIMATES: The current Federal cost estimate of $17,300,000 is an increase of $600,000 over the latest estimate ($16,700,000) submitted to Congress. The increase includes $184,000 for Lands and Damages based on a reanalysis of requirements; $146,000 based on price level rise; and $229,000 in Recreational Facilities and $68,000 in Supervision and Administration, both based on a reanalysis of requirements. These increases were partially offset by a net reduction of $27,000 in other features based on more detailed engineering studies and design.
