LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL
CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES,
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
Washington, D.C., April 30, 1979. Hon. HARLEY 0. STAGGERS, Chairman, Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, U.S.
House of Representatives, Washington, D.C. DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN : Attached is a staff study on the legislative history of section 214 of the Communications Act of 1934. The study is the product of 9 months of extensive research and drafting by Kathleen Casey, minority staff assistant, under the supervision of Ronald D. Coleman, associate minority counsel. The study details the history of the development and application of the provisions of section 214, tracing its origin to railroad legislation.
It would be very useful to the members of the committee to publish this study as a committee print, especially since section 214 is a major element of current common carrier regulation that our subcommittee is reviewing during consideration of comprehensive communications legislation. Sincerely,
LIONEL VAN DEERLIN,
Chairman, Subcommittee on Communications.
