Congress of the U.S. , Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Government Operations.
Testimony given at the U.S. Senate Committee on Government Operations hearings--held on April 27-28, 1971, in Washington D.C.--centered on bill S.10 which is designed to revitalize rural and other economically distressed areas by (1) establishing incentives for a more even and practical geographic distribution of industrial growth and activity and (2) developing manpower training programs to meet the needs of industry. The hearings focused on 3 primary areas: what rural policies and programs are presently operative; the implementation and degree of coordination taking place within the Government; and what legislative steps can be taken to speed up the process of rural revitalization, making it more lasting and effective while relieving population and industrial pressures on cities. Included in Part 1 are the test of S.10; staff memorandum No. 92-1-13 (purpose, background, and previous hearings on S.10); Resolution H.C.R. No. 16 of the Arkansas State Legislature (endorsement of S.10); statements from 19 senators, consultants, and various state and Federal officials; and 8 exhibits (circulars, information from the Office of Management and Budget, 2 addresses on policy for rural and urban America, and a relevant newspaper article).
