In 1965, the Committee on Appropriations of the House of Representatives provided for the establishment of a citizens advisory body to (1) make a comprehensive study of the vocational rehabilitation program and vocational rehabilitation needs, and (2) formulate goals and make specific recommendations for arriving at these goals.
