These are the June 24 and 26, 1980 hearings on "Cartel Restriction Act" held before the House Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Finance of the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce. From the Opening Statement of Richardson Preyer: "Today, we begin consideration of the Cartel Restriction Act of 1979, H.R. 4661. Basically, this bill would require American firms to notify the FTC [Federal Trade Commission] and the Attorney General if they are requested or required to participate in anticompetitive activity on an international basis. The bill also would set up standards for the 'act of state' and 'foreign compulsion' doctrines which are rather technical judicial abstention techniques that affect international antitrust cases. This bill [...] is an attempt to stem the increase in international cartels and their effect on the American economy." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael D. Blechman, Lori Damrosh, Barbara Epstein, F. David Freeman, Albert Gore Jr., William T. Lake, William J. Lamont, Richard S. Newfarmer, Douglas E. Rosenthal, Ronald B. Rowe, Herbert Sanger, and John H. Shenefield.
