This is the March 6, 1974 hearing "To Investigate the Adequacy and Effectiveness of Federal Disaster Relief Legislation, Part 6" before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Disaster Relief of the Committee on Public Works. From the Opening Statement of Quentin Burdick: "The Subcommittee on Disaster Relief meets today to receive comments on S. 3062, the Disaster Relief Act Amendments of 1974, which I introduced on February 26 for myself and several colleagues. However, this session also is a continuation of the series of five hearings held last year by the subcommittee in various sections of the country to examine all aspects of Federal disaster assistance. The subcommittee has carefully reviewed operation of the Disaster Relief Act of 1970 in several of the more than 100 major disasters since its enactment. It has also studied the recommendations contained in the administration-sponsored disaster assistance bill (S. 1840) and the testimony submitted to the subcommittee by more than 300 witnesses." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Enso V. Bighinatti, William E. Crockett, Thomas Dunne, George M. Elsey, James B. Foley, Thomas L. Judge, Tom Moody, John Murphy, Mike O'Callaghan, and Kay Sauerbrunn.
