Amendments to the Environmental Education Act of 1970. Hearings before the Select Subcommittee on Education of the Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives, Ninety-Third Congress, First Session on H.R.3927.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
Presented in this bulletin is the text of the hearings before the Select Subcommittee on Education of the Committee on Education and Labor concerning a bill to extend the Environmental Education Act of 1970 for three years (HR 3927). The hearings were held April 17, May 15 and 17, 1973, to provide an opportunity for individuals from the public, educational community, and environmental groups as well as officials of the administration to express their views on the bill. Chairman John Brademas prefaced initial statements by pointing out that the current administration requested no funds for the implementation of the Act in 1971; delayed establishing the Advisory Council, mandated by law, for a full 12 months after the measure was enacted; and delayed, also for a full year, establishing the Office of Environmental Education required by the Act. Also, that the administration has tried to hamstring the Office of Environmental Education in the Office of Education with redtape and a variety of bureaucratic strategies and has provided no money for the Office of Environmental Education in the proposed 1974 budget, virtually killing the modest program. Statements made at the hearings and additional prepared statements, letters, and supplemental material submitted for the record are presented. (BL)
