CONGRESSIONAL RECORD- SENATE
TuESI}AY·, MAY 7, 1974
THE STATUS OF MAJOR LEGISLATION
LEFT FROM 1ST SESSION OF
93D CONGRESS AND 2D SESSION,
INCLUDING MAY 1, 1974
Mr. MANSFIELD. Mr. President, the
Senate has been in session for 54 days
up to and including May 1, 1974, in the
2d session of the 93d Congress.
During that period, there have been
163 yea-and-nay or rollcall votes. I
should like at this time to submit to the
Senate the status of major legislation
left over from the 1st session of the
93d Congress and the 2d session, including
It represents the work not of the Democratic
majority in Congress but the
results of the endeavors on the part of
both Democrats and Republicans who
comprise the membership of this body.
I think it is a record of which the Senate
can be proud. I only express the hope
that the same kind of accommodation
which has been so evident will continue
in the future-and I anticipate that it
There are no appropriation ~ - bills on
this list because aside from the supplemental
bill which will be taken up on
Monday or Tuesday next, we have only
received one of the regular appropriated
bills from the other body.
- Of course, we all understand that under
precedent and custom, we are unable
to act until or unless we receive the
bills from the House but, in the meantime,
all of the Senate committees are
working assiduously trying to keep up
to date and to be as well prepared as possible
when those bills reach us.
The Senate is to be commended for its
devotion and dedication in attending to
the business of the Nation, despite Watergate
and related matters. It has done
so with restraint and responsibility and
it has done so fairly and effectively, both
in reality and in appearance. The proof
of what the Senate has done ~n facing
up to its constitutional responsibilitiesand
will continue to do-lies in i.ts- record
Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent
that a list of the status of this major
legislation be printed in the REC()RD.
There being no objection, the list was
ordered to be printed in the RECOR:P, as
