Washington, April 9.—The budget bill
which Chairman Good of the House ap
propriations committee expects to intro
duce Monday when Congress convenes
will be the same in essentials as the
measure passed by the last Congress and
veteoed by former President Wilson, tt
will provide, however, for a budget
bureau with both its directors and assis

Good said today, after a conference with
President Harding. The vetoed bill con
tained a provision, inserted by the Sen

Secretary of Treasury with an assistant
appointed by the President.
The bill as completed today, Mr. Good
said, would stipulate that Congress shall
have authority to remove the comptrol

impressed with the importance of In
augurating a budget system. The bud
get bill will be given a place near the j
