STATEMENT OF SENATOR •tiKE MANSFIELD (D·MONT)
"CBS AND ELECTION REFORM"
~. President, election reform has been discussed from time to
tine for a number of years, but I believe that l-7e are now approaching the
point where such changes in our election campaign laws will be seriously
discussed anu considered. Campaign expenditures are getting completely out
o£ hand and it seer,lS like we are campaigning all of the time .
We have major proposals being introduced in this new 92nd Congress,
and it is my hope that the appropriate committees will be able to address
themselves to these problems at an early date.
One of the st active proponents of campaign reform is Frank
Stanton, Vice President of Columbia Broadcasting S7stem, Inc. In mid-January
he made available to many of us here in Congress a 11Pive Point Program for
Election Reform. I think that this is something that would be of interest
to all Members of the House and Senate.
Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent to have the Five Po int
Program prepared by Frank Stanton printed at this point in my remarks in
the Congressional Record.
