Transcript of Executive Session Hearing on H.R. 6927

Document Viewer

Chairman Dawson convened an executive session of the full committee on May 5, 1965 to vote on H.R. 6927 and report the bill to the House. He stated that the legislation simply upgraded the existing Housing and Home Finance Agency (HHFA) to cabinet-level status and gave the new secretary the power to coordinate and administer urban programs. Representative William S. Moorhead (D-PA) , however, voiced concerned that the bill “is creating a skeleton” that will grow and seek new powers. When the roll call vote was taken, however, Moorhead and 20 others voted to report the bill favorably while 8 voted against reporting the bill.
