These are the October 23 and November 8, 1979 hearings on "Implementation of the Taiwan Relations Act" held before the Committee on Foreign Affairs, House of Representatives. From the opening statement of Clement J. Zablocki: "We are meeting today to receive testimony in connection with implementation of the Taiwan Relations Act. As members know, it is not only our general responsibility to over­see the implementation of laws which are under the jurisdiction of our committee but also, in the Taiwan Relations Act itself, in section 14, there is a provision for congressional oversight. It is now approximately a half year since the Taiwan Relations Act has been signed into law. The law was fashioned in large part in this committee, and the Chair is pleased to say that we have received a number of compliments in relation to the drafting of this act, including compliments from the executive branch which don't come too often." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: William N. Morell Jr., Robert P. Parker, and Warren Christopher.
