CONGRESSIONAL RECORD-- SENATE November 3, 19GD
THE TAX REFORM-TAX RELIEF
Mr. MANSFIELD. Mr. President, the
action last Friday by the Senate Finance
Committee in ordering reported the Ta.x
Reform-Tax Relief Act brings closer to
completion what should prove to be the
most singular achievement of the 9lst
Congress. During my years in Congress,
I ha.ve never witnessed any committee
devote itself more diligently to a. taskin
this case worldng from early mornl.ng
to early evening for 2 solid monthsthan
ha.s the F1na.nce Committee under
the leadership of its chairman, RuSSELL
Last July, when the question of extending
the surtax was before the Senate,
Cha.irman LoNG and the members of
the Finance Committee agreed tha.t they
would report the tax reform bill by October
31. I do not believe that even they .
rea.llzed at the time just how much work
would be involved in meetlni tha.t timetable.
But rather tha.n extend the period
to accommodut.c ~he workload, they lntPnslfled
thC'Ir effort.~ to mcc~ the ot1J(Inal
schedule. In settln~t such a UmcUlblc fol'
his committee, Chulrman LONG Is to be
particularly lauded for his e!Torts, for his
commitment, for his cooperation. and
In like manner, the ranking minority
member, the distinguished Senator from
Delaware n until 1972. In
this regard the bill Ia somewhat more conIH!!"
Vatlve than that passed by the House.
