Pales, David J. R.; And Others
The report is a summary of the responses of 8 federal agencies and departments (the Small Business Administration; the Environmental Protection Agency; and the Departments of Labor; Justice; Housing and Urban Development; Health, Education, and Welfare; Commerce; and Energy) to the inquiries made by President Jimmy Carter regarding issues, questions, and concerns raised by Hispanics at 16 Town Meetings conducted in 1978 in 7 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Areas of concern raised at the meetings were employment, the administration of justice and immigration, housing, health and welfare, education, economic development, and Hispanic data collection. Responses generally describe what the government, in general, and the Carter administration, in particular, have done and are doing to alleviate problems in these areas; note the effect of existing policy on the Hispanic population; include a progress report on any remedial action; and indicate pertinent future plans. The report also lists the name, title, address, and telephone number of all Hispanic presidential appointees. (SB)
