Letter from Secretary of the Department of Health, Education, and Labor Anthony Celebrezze to Senator Lister Hill Regarding H.R. 3708

Document Viewer

When H.R. 3708 was introduced in the Senate, it was referred to the Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare, chaired by Lister Hill (D-AL). Anthony Celebrezze, Secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW), responded to the chair’s request for a report on the bill and supported its provisions with one exception. Celebrezze objected to a provision of H.R. 3708 that had been added to the bill by a floor amendment and that gave states the final say on certain grants awarded by HEW to state agencies or to public or private nonprofits serving the elderly. The Senate committee reported a bill conforming to the administration request and on June 16, the Senate passed H.R. 3708 by a roll call vote of 72 to 5. On July 6, 1965, the House agreed to the Senate’s version of H.R. 3708 leaving the final decision on grants to HEW.
