On March 4, 1970, I established the Interagency Economic Adjustment Committee to assist individuals and communities that suffer adverse economic impacts as a result of necessary Defense realignments. I now intend to strengthen the Committee's efforts and expand its membership.

The Secretary of Defense will continue to chair the Committee. As members, each of you will be cooperating closely with the Chairman to discharge fully the Committee's important responsibilities...

I know that I can count on your full energies in this vital effort,

Richard Nixon
