[blocks in formation]

Section 107 of the reported bill authorizes the Secretary to advise, assist, and cooperate with other departments and agencies of the, Federal Government as well as States and other interested public and private agencies in the planning and development of safety standards and methods for inspecting and testing to determine compliance therewith.

This section was included to make certain that the Secretary would have full authority to consult with the entire spectrum of agencies, public and private, in the planning and development of standards and methods for inspecting and testing to determine compliance with such standards. For example, this would permit the Secretary to advise and consult with other concerned Federal departments and agencies such as the Department of Defense, the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, the General Services Administration,

the Federal Aviation Agency, as well as the many State, public, and private organizations concerned with the various aspects of problems relating to motor vehicle and equipment safety. This would include educational institutions which are participating in the search for safety as well as such other private agencies as the Secretary determines appropriate.
