TRADE ADJUSTMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS UNDER TITLE II OF THE TRADE ACT OF 1974

THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 1977

House of REPRESENTATIVEs,
SUBCOMMITTEE ON TRADE,
CoMMITTEE on WAYs AND MEANs,
Washington, D.C.

The subcommittee met 10:08 a.m., pursuant to notice, in the committee hearing room, Longworth House Office Building, Hon. Sam M. Gibbons presiding. Mr. GIBBoNs. The meeting will come to order. This is a hearing of the Subcommittee on Trade on adjustment assistance under the Trade Act of 1974. I welcome the representatives from the public who have come to testify today and tomorrow, and I also want to welcome my colleagues from the Congress who have come to talk to us about the adjustment assistance. The subcommittee will receive testimony on several bills introduced on several provisions of the worker assistance program; namely, to amend the present 1-year limit on retroactive applications for petitions, to extend benefit allowances an additional 26 weeks, and to amend the present Federal and State funding of the program. The subcommittee is particularly interested in hearing the views of labor, business, and other interested parties to these Government assistance programs. Through your help, we can consider possible changes in this law and the regulations to improve the effectiveness of these programs in achieving an orderly adjustment to import competition. Administration witnesses will be invited to testify at a later date. I hope that it will not be too much later. Because of the limited time available and to maximize the period for questions and discussion, we ask each witness to summarize his statement and restrict his presentation to not more than 5 minutes. The testimony of all witnesses will be printed in full in the hearing record, which will remain open for written statements through the close of business on Monday, April 4. Without objection, the press release announcing this hearing will be included in the printed hearing record. No objection being heard, it is so ordered.
