REGULATION OF SHIPMENT OF PETROLEUM IN INTER

STATE AND FOREIGN COMMERCE

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1937

UNITED STATES SENATE,
SUBCOMMITTEE OF THE COMMITTEE ON FINANCE,

Washington, D. C. The subcommittee met, pursuant to call, in room 450 Senate Office Building, at 10 a. m., Senator Tom Connally presiding.

Present: Senators Connally and Lonergan. Also present: Hon. Harold L. Ickes, Secretary of the Interior, and Mr. E. B. Swanson, Associate Director, Petroleum Conservation Division, Department of the Interior.

Senator CONNALLY. Will the subcommittee please come to order. Senator Townsend, who is a member of the subcommittee, had to be out of the city this morning.

We have met to consider S. 790, which is as follows: A BILL To repeal section 13 of the Act entitled "An Act to regulate interstate and foreign commerce in

petroleum and its products by prohibiting the shipment in such commerce of petroleum and its products produced in violation of State law, and for other purposes”, approved February 22, 1935

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That section 13 of the Act entitled "An Act to regulate interstate and foreign commerce in petroleum and its products by prohibiting the shipment in such commerce of petroleum and its products produced in violation of State law, and for other purposes”, approved February 22, 1935, is hereby repealed.

The repeal is simply a repeal of that clause of the act which limited its operation to June 1937 and the effect of repealing that clause would be to make the act permanent law; and so the purpose of this bill is simply to continue the so-called Connally "Hot Oil” Act, and make it permanent. I will submit for the record a copy of the act, Public Law No. 14, Seventy-fourth Congress.

[PUBLIC—No. 14—74TH CONGRESS]

[S. 1190] AN ACT To regulate interstate and foreign commerce in petroleum and its products by prohibiting the shipment in such commerce of petroleum and its products produced in violation of State law, and for other purposes

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That it is hereby declared to be the policy of Congress to protect interstate and foreign commcere from the diversion and obstruction of, and the burden and harmful effect upon, such commerce caused by contraband oil as herein defined, and to encourage the conservation of deposits of crude oil situated within the United States.

SEC. 2. As used in this Act

(1) The term “contraband oil” means petroleum which, or any constituent part of which, was produced, transported, or withdrawn from storage in excess of the amounts permitted to be produced, transported, or withdrawn from storage
