AMEND THE FILLED MILK ACT

APRIL 26, 1935.-Committed to the Committee of the Whole House on the state

of the Union and ordered to be printed

Mr. POLK, from the Committee on Agriculture, submitted the

following

REPORT

[To accompany H. R. 6361)

The Committee on Agriculturo, to whom was referred the bill (H. R. 6361) to amend the Filled Milk Act, having considered the same, report thereon with a recommendation that it do pass.

STATEMENT

When the filled milk bill was enacted, no provision was made for the administration of the act by any of the executive departments, and it was suggested in a letter from the Attorney General in 1936 that the Department of Agriculture be charged with the administration of the act. Bills were introduced and reported favorably to the House in both the Seventy-first and Seventy-second Congresses, but were not reached for action in the House.

It will be noted from attached letters from the present Attorney General and Acting Secretary of Agriculture that they also approve the measure. The letters are as follows:

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTIOB,

Washington, D. C., January 84, 1996. Hon. MARVIN JONES, Chairman Committee on Agriculture, House of Representatives,

Washington, D. C. MY DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN: I have considered your letter of January 19, enclosing a copy of a proposed bill to amend the Filled Milk Act and advise that I have no objection to its enactment.

When the Filled Milk Act was enacted no provision was made for the administration of the act by any agency of the Government. In view of this fact, tho duty of enforcing the provisions of the statute has devolved upon the Department of Justice under its general function as the agency of the Government charged with the enforcement of all penal statutes, the enforcement of which is not otherwise provided for.

Under the provisions of the proposed bill as transmitted by you, the administration of the act is placed in the Department of Agriculture where, I believe, it properly belongs. Sincerely yours,

HOMER CUMMINGS,

Attorney General.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,

Washington, D. C., February 26, 1935. Hon. MARVIN JONES, Chairman Committee on Agriculture,

House of Representatives, Washington, D. C. DEAR MR. JONES: I have your letter of January 19 enclosing a copy of "A Bill to Amend the Filled Milk Act” of March 4, 1923 (U. S. C., title 21, ch. 3), with a request for the Department's recommendation.

This bill is identical with $. 1355, introduced in the first session of the Seventysecond Congress. The bill proposes to assign the responsibility for enforcing the Filled Milk Act to the Department of Agriculture and authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to make and enforce such regulations as may be necessary for carrying out the purposes of the act. It also authorizes the annual appropriation of $10,000 for this purpose.

This Department recognizes that the Filled Milk Act is similar in may respects to statutes now administered by this Department. Existing enforcement machinery in the Department could therefore be utilized to advantage in the administration of the act.

If the specified appropriation is made available, this Department would have no objection to the enactment of the measure. Sincerely yours,

W. L. WILSON, Acting Secretary. Upon reference of the matter to the Budget Bureau, as required by Budget Circular 49, the Department was advised by the Director thereof, under date of February 12, 1935, that, if the proposed legislation be amended to authorize the appropriation of “not to exceed”. $10,000, annually, the expenditures contemplated thereby would not be in conflict with the financial program of the President.

In compliance with paragraph 2a of rule XIII of the Rules of the House of Representatives the existing law is shown in roman and the new matter added printed in italics:
