Volume III of this legislative history contains the histories of three amendments to the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966: (1) the 1968 Amendment (Public Law 90-283); (2) The 1970 Amendment (Public Law 91-265); and (3) the “National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act Amendments of 1972” (Public Law 92-548).
The legislative documents relating to the enactment of these amendments are contained in this volume, together with sectionby-section analyses for the 1970 Amendment and the Amendments of 1972. A section-by-section analysis of the 1968 Amendment is omitted since that amendment has only one section.
