SIT BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THE NATION TODAY Truman Move for Toft-Hartley Law Repeal Clears Hurdles in House and Senate Committees By James Marlnvr WASHINGTON, March 28. (/P> —After many weeks of getting ready. Congress now has cleared the decks to pass » new labor law. It may be months before thai is done. Neither House nor Senate Is yet ready to begin the big debate on what the Inw should be. But before there can be any new law at nil, both houses must vote «nd agree on It. * ; These past weeks have been laken I up by hearings in (lie House and | Senate Labor clmtnittees. Day after day and night after night labor leaders, labor experts and business men have trooped before the committees to say their say. President Truman's administration is pledged to wipe out the Taft- Harltey Act (or most of it) which the 80th Congress, controlled by Republicans, passed in 1947 to replace the old Wagner labor act, passed by the Democrats in 1935. Mr. Truman's advisors presented Congress with a bill that would wipe out Tuft-Hartley and restore the Wagner act with some "improvements." Committee* Hear Arguments The job of the labor committees, as in the case of any congressional committee, Is— To hear both sides of the argument on a bill, decide what tt thinks Is right or wrong, re-write the bill if necessary, and then send up to the full House and Senate for a vole on the kind of bill It thinks should be voted Into lav,'. So the witnesses paraded before the labor committees to give their opinions on whether: The Taft-Hartley Act was good or' bad. should be toughened, or softened, or x wiped out completely and replaced by the old Wagner Act; or whether some parts of Taft- Hartley should be kept in the law »nd added to the old Wagner Act. making it n brand new act; or whether the bill prepared by Mr. Truman's advisors should be law. Changes Anticipated Since Democrats have a majority 'in Congress, Democrats on both the House and Senate Labor committee had a controlling voice in what would be done. And — when the hearings were over and all the witnesses had finished their arguments, the Democratic majority on bolh committees approved, unchanged, the hill which > had the blessing of Mr. Truman's advisors. The Senate committee did that a couple of weeks ago, the House committee on Thursday. So it's their bill which now lies . before both houses of Congress, Awaiting to be voted Into law. Will Congress approve it, unchanged, just as the committees did? : Probably not. No one is betting It will. Why? Because plenty of congressmen, particularly the Republicans, don't Ihlnk the present bill gnes far enough, that it's too one_ sided In favor of unions. And—a bill can be changed right on the floor of both houses, by vot- ing'amendments to it before vote Is taken on the entire bill. So don't be surprised If Congress finally votes for a new labor Inw' little different from the one Mr Truman asked for.
