DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA HOME RULE BILLS

[ocr errors]

TUESDAY, JULY 28, 1959
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,

SUBCOMMITTEE No. 3 OF THE
COMMITTEE ON THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA,

Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met at 10 a.m., pursuant to notice, in room 445, House Office Building, Hon. James C. Davis (subcommittee chairman) presiding

Chairman Davis and the following other members were present: Mr. McMillan, Mr. Abernethy, Mr. Williams, Mr. Wier, Mr. Multer, Mr. Matthews, Mr. Harmon, Mr. Foley, Mr. Irwin, Mr. Morris, Mr. Kearns, Mr. Broyhill, Mr. Springer, Mr. W. Smith, and Mrs. Weis.

Also present: William N. McLeod, Jr., clerk of the Committee on the District of Columbia; Hayden S. Garber, counsel; Ann L. Puryear, assistant clerk; Leonard O. Hilder, investigator; and Donald Tubridy, minority clerk.

Mr. Davis. The subcommittee will come to order, please.

We have called these hearings to consider all of the pending home rule legislation before this subcommittee. There are pending 26 bills; 23 of them are identical. Three vary in some respects from the others, they are the bills by. Mr. Auchincloss, H.R. 2321; by Mr. Wier, H.R. 1379; and by Mr. Multer, H.R. 8081.

(S. 1681, H.R. 1379, H.R. 2321, H.R. 4400, and H.R. 8081 follow:)

(S. 1681, 86th Cong., 1st sess.) AN ACT To provide an elected mayor, city council, and nonvoting delegate to the House of

Representatives for the District of Columbia, and for other purposes Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That subject to the retention by Congress of the ultimate legislative authority over the Nation's Capital which is granted by the Constitution, it is the intent of Congress to restore to the inhabitants of the District of Columbia the powers of local self-government which are a basic privilege of all American citizens; to reaffirm through such action the confidence of the American people in the strengthened validity of principles of local self-government by the elective process; to promote among the inhabitants of the District the sense of responsibility for the development and wellbeing of their community which will result from the enjoyment of such powers of self-government; to provide for the more effective participation in the development of the District and in the solution of its local problems by those persons who are most closely concerned ; and to relieve the National Legislature of the burden of legislating upon purely local District matters. It is the further intention of Congress to exercise its retained ultimate legislative authority over the District only insofar as such action shall be necessary or desirable in the interest of the Nation. Finally, it is recognized that the restoration of the powers of local self-government to the inhabitants of the District by this Act will in no way change the need, which arises from the unique character of the District as the Nation's Capital, for the payment by the Federal Government of a share
