Washington, D.C.

The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 10 a.m. in room 3302, Dirksen Senate Office Building, Hon. Abraham Ribicoff (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.

[The press release announcing these hearings and the bill S. 1376 follow:]

[Press release No. H-38]

FINANCE SUBCOMMITTEE ON INTERNATIONAL TRADE TO HOLD HEARINGS ON THE TRADE AGREEMENTS ACT OF 1979 (S. 1376)

The Honorable Abraham Ribicoff (D., Ct.) Chairman of the Subcommittee on International Trade of the Committee on Finance, today announced that the Subcommittee will hold a hearing on the Trade Agreements Act of 1979 (S. 1376), a bill to implement for the United States the results of the Tokyo Round of Multilateral Trade Negotiations. The Administration will be represented at these hearings by the Special Representative for Trade Negotiations, Ambassador Robert S. Strauss. Senator Ribicoff noted that the Congressional procedures for consideration of legislation implementing trade negotiations prohibit any amendments to the legislation submitted by the President to the Congress. The purpose, therefore, of this hearing is to provide members of the public an opportunity to express their views as to whether the implementing legislation, taken as a whole, is in the best interests of the United States and should be approved by the Congress.

The hearing will begin at 10 a.m., Tuesday, July 10, 1979, in room 3302 Dirksen Senate Office Building.

Requests to testify.-Chairman Ribicoff stated that witnesses desiring to testify during this hearing must make their requests to testify to Michael Stern, Staff Director, Committee on Finance, Room 2227, Dirksen Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20510, not later than the close of business on Thursday, July 5, 1979. Witnesses who are scheduled to testify will be notified as soon as possible after this date as to when they will appear. If for some reason the witness is unable to appear at the time scheduled, he may file a written statement for the record in lieu of the personal appearance. Chairman Ribicoff also stated that, in light of the large number of people who will be interested in testifying and the limited time available for the hearings, the Subcommittee strongly urges all witnesses who have a common position or the same general interest to consolidate their testimony and to designate a single spokesman to present their common viewpoint to the Subcommittee. This procedure will enable the Subcommittee to receive a wider expression of views than it might otherwise obtain.

Legislative Reorganization Act.-Chairman Ribicoff stated that the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 requires all witnesses appearing before the Committees of Congress to "file in advance written statements of their proposed testimony and to limit their oral presentation to brief summaries of their argument." Senator Ribicoff stated that, in light of this statute, the number of witnesses who desire to appear before the Subcommittee, and the limited time available for the hearings, all witnesses who are scheduled to testify must comply with the following rules:

(1)

1. All witnesses must include with their written statements a summary of the principal points included in the statement.

2. The written statements must be typed on lettersize paper (not legal size) and at least 100 copies must be delivered to room 2227, Dirksen Senator Office Building, not later than 5:00 P.M. on Monday, July 9, 1979.

3. Witnesses are not to read their written statements to the Subcommittee, but are to confine their oral presentations to a summary of the points included in the statement.

4. All witnesses will be limited to no more than five minutes for their oral summary before the Subcommittee.

Witnesses who fail to comply with these rules will forfeit their privilege to testify. Written statements.-Persons not scheduled to make an oral presentation, and others who desire to present their views to the Subcommittee, are urged to prepare a written statement for submission and inclusion in the printed record of the hearing. These written statements should be submitted to Michael Stern, Staff Director, Senate Committee on Finance, Room 2227, Dirksen Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20510, not later than Tuesday, July 17, 1979.
