Photograph and Biography of Missing Child. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Postal Personnel and Modernization of the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service. House of Representatives, Ninety-Ninth Congress, First Session on S. 1195.
Congress of the U. S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Post Office and Civil Service.
This document contains witness testimonies and prepared statements from the Congressional hearing called to examine S. 1195, legislation which would require a portion of Congressional and executive branch mail to include the photograph and biography of a missing child. In his opening statement Representative Frank McCloskey points out that mail from members of Congress reaches citizens in every community in all 50 states and that a picture of a missing child on 75 percent of official Senate and House of Representative mail and on 50 percent of mail sent by the executive branch would reach many people in a vast number of geographic areas. Testimonies and statements are included from several members of Congress; from the secretary of the Senate; the clerk and deputy clerk of the House of Representatives; a consultant and the executive director from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children; and the director of the Office of In-Plant Processing, United States Postal Service. Also included is a statement from the public printer of the United States. Witnesses offer testimony in favor of the legislation, call for further deliberation and clarification of the bill, and consider problems in the implementation of the bill. Exhibits are included which illustrate Postal Service limitations on the placement of nonaddress data or markings on the outside of letter size mail. (NRB)
