Counsel to National
Mr. McCloskey. I also request we insert in the record pages 153 to 182 of the Merchant Marine hearings of the 92nd Congress, which were on the bill that changed the penalty for rebating from criminal to civil.
The CHAIRMAN. Would you put that in the form of a unanimous consent request ?
Mr. McCloskey. I ask unanimous consent to put it in the record at this point.
The CHAIRMAN. The Chair hears no objection. [The following was received for the record:]
MERCHANT MARINE MISCELLANEOUS
FMC Criminal to Civil Penalties
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 30, 1971
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met at 10:10 a.m., in room 1334, Longworth Building, the Honorable Edward A. Garmatz (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.
The CHAIRMAN. The meeting will come to order.
The hearing this morning was called to consider H.R. 755, which I introduced on January 22, 1971. The bill would change the penalties for certain violations of the Shipping Act of 1916 from criminal to civil. A similar bill was introduced last year and at one point in time we did schedule a hearing on it, but the scheduled witness from the Federal Maritime Commission was unable to appear and the hearing was canceled.
Subsequent to the introduction of my bill, a similar bill was referred to this committee after having been submitted to the Congress from the executive branch by way of Executive Communication No. 772.
I might say at the outset that we have received reports on this bill from several agencies of the Government and no objection thereto has been interposed.
(Executive Communication No. 772, the bill, and departmental reports follow :)
