ENFORCEMENT AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1971

U.S. SENATE, SUBCOMMITTEE ON BUSINESS, COMMERCE, AND JUDICIARY, COMMITTEE ON THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA,

Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 9:30 a.m., in room 6226, New Senate Office Building, Senator Adlai E. Stevenson III (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.

Present: Senator Stevenson.

Staff present: Gene E. Godley, general counsel; and Clarence V. McKee, Jr.,

minority staff member. Senator STEVENSON. The hearing of the Subcommittee on Business, Commerce, and Judiciary will come to order.

This morning hearings are being held on four bills, which are part of the District government's legislative program.

Two bills relate to the laws governing professions, occupations, and license fees, under the 21 acts affecting such professions and occupations.

The purpose of these two bills is to delegate functions to the District of Columbia government which are municipal functions contended to be better performed by local government than the Congress.

Another bill we will hear this morning relates to the modernization and updating of several divisions of law enforcement and criminal justice in the District.

The last bill increases protection to consumers from the insolvency of insurance companies doing business in the District.

I now place in the record copies of $. 1363, S. 1338, S. 2208, and S. 2209.

(The bills follow :)
