These are the March 25, 26, 27, 28; July 30, 1969; May 4, 5, 6, and 7, 1970 hearings on "Electric Power Reliability 1969-1970," held Before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Communications and Power of the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce. From the opening statement of Torbert H. Macdonald: "Today the Subcommittee on Communications and Power is beginning hearings on my bill, H.R. 7186 and several others, all of which are intended to promote the reliability, abundance, economy, and efficiency of bulk electric power supplies. [...] These power failures pose a threat to our national welfare and security, to say nothing of a threat to health and welfare of consumers during the time of the failures. True, the electric power industry has begun to form electric power coordinating councils but more than that has to be done. [...] What I hope is presented to this committee instead will be suggestions for improvements that can be made in the legislation and constructive alternatives to its various provisions." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: A. H. Aymond, Carl E. Bagge, and James E. Baker. Additional statements can be found in the document.
