The CHAIRMAN. The meeting will come to order.
Mr. RILEY. Mr. Chairman, this matter relates to Senate Resolution 105 and Senate Resolution 124. A number of witnesses have been good enough to come in today to give their thinking on efficiency ratings.
The CHAIRMAN. For the purpose of the record, this is a hearing on Senate Resolution 105 and Senate Resolution 124, and I think because of their nature they both can be considered together, before a subcommittee of the Senate Post Office and Civil Service Committee.
We will hear as the first witness Dr. Rensis Likert, of the University of Michigan.
Will you identify yourself for the record, Dr. Likert?
