Washington The value of a
session of Congress should never
tie judged on the basis of the
volume of legislation enacted.
While approval of measures in
the national interest is highly
desirable, Congress also performs
an invaluable function by adopt
ing a "Stop-I.ook-Listen” atti
tude toward unwise proposals.
The 1963 session did not ac
; coo plish a great deal of a posi
( tive nature, but the legislators
i f ised to approve a large num
ber of proposals which oppon
ents contended would have vast
ly increased federal spending,
(ere alized additional power in
the federal government and the
presidency and further regiment
ed industry and the people.
Hut—and this is a highly im
portant but—the 1964 session
pi ks up exactly where the 1963
one left off ,and determined ef
< forts will be made to push much
of the pending legislation to en
actment next year.
So, what industrly really has
gained is a reprieve so far as
legislation it opposes is concern
At the same time, industry
has a new opportunity to urge
approval of measures it favors—|
such as tax rate reform which
would make more investment
capital available to create jobs |
and to expand the economy.
Legislation passed during the
session included proposals
equal pay for women, com-
Hu»t arbitration of a railroad
HHB.r dispute, expanded federal
against air pollution, and
subsidies for some edu-
BHBtional programs, as well as
Senate ratification of the limit
ed nuclear test ban treaty.
The Administration’s tax bill
was passed, in modified form, by
the House—and the Senate Fi
nance Committee concluded hear
ings on December 10. Final ac
tion, retroactive to January 1, is
generally expected during the
early months of the new year.
Civil rights legislation was ap
proved by the House Judiciary
Committee and Chairman Smith |
(l)-Va.) of the Rules Commit
tee has promised hearings “rea
sonably soon" on whether to
send the measure to the floor
fur a vote. A filibuster awaits
in (he Senate.
A not inconsiderable amount :.i
time was consumed by charges
from- liberals that Congress
Mu Id change its rules so as to
expedite approval of legislation
proposed by the President.
An answer to this philosophy,
