Presented is the hearing to extend and make technical corrections to the National Sea Grant College and Program Act of 1966 as amended. The texts of the bills presented by the Senate (S. 1262) and the House (H.R. 5452) on these matters and the National Science Foundation comments on S. 1262 are included. Among the proposed amendments is the transfer of authority from the "National Science Foundation" to the "Secretary of Commerce." Statements summarize the purpose of the Act, include examples and samples of existing college programs, and present potential programmatic goals which include expansion of international efforts. Discussions among committee members indicate concern over the administration's proposal to freeze money at last year's level which would mean program reduction. Appended are supporting letters, articles, and statements. (MLB)
