CLEAN AIR ACT AMENDMENTS OF 1966

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1966

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
SUBCOMMITTEE ON PUBLIC HEALTH AND WELFARE,
OF THE COMMITTEE ON INTERSTATE AND FOREIGN COMMERCE,

Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met at 10 a.m., pursuant to call, in room 2218, Rayburn Office Building, Hon. John Jarman (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.

Mr. JARMAN. The subcommittee will please come to order. The hearings today are on H.R. 13199, S. 3112, and related bills extending the Clean Air Act.

In general, these bills would extend that act, which presently expires June 30, 1967, for additional periods ranging from 3 to 5 years, and provide an increase in the authorization for appropriations for the current fiscal year from $35 to $46 million.

S. 3112 and H.R. 13199 were each introduced at the request of the administration, and S. 3112 was reported to the Senate with amendments which were agreed to and the bill then passed the Senate on July 12 by a rollcall vote of 80 yeas and no nays.

It is my hope that we can complete these hearings as expeditiously as possible so that we can report a bill to the full committee at the earliest possible date.

At this point in the record there will be included copies of the bills and the agency reports thereon.

(The bills and reports referred to follow :)

(H.R. 13199, 89th Cong., 2d sess.)

A BILL To amend the Clean Air Act so as to authorize grants to air pollution control

agencies for maintenance of air pollution control programs in addition to present authority for grants to develop, establish, or improve such programs; make the use of appropriations under the Act more flexible by consolidating the appropriation authorizations under the Act and deleting the provision limiting the total of grants for support of air pollution control programs to 20 per centum of the total appropriation for any year; extend the duration of the programs authorized by the Act; and for other purposes

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That this Act may be cited as the "Clean Air Act Amendments of 1966."

CONSOLIDATION OF APPROPRIATION CEILINGS
SEC. 2. Section 306 of the Clean Air Act is amended to read as follows:

“Sec. 306. There are hereby authorized to be appropriated to carry out this Act, $46,000,000 for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1967, an such sums as may be necessary for each succeeding fiscal year ending prior to July 1, 1973."
