Congressman Goad's Comments 6th District Congressman From Iowa Reports On Washington Activities February 7, 1957 In the past few weeks I have reported through this column the action in the Committee and on the floor of the House. However not all of the tin-^e of a Congressman is spent in committee meetings nor on the floor of the House. As most everyone is well aware, a Congressman has a voluminous amount of correspondence which has to be taken care of and that item alone consumes a considerable amount of time. . In addition to this there are other matters coming to his attention which are also of great importance. Among these items must be classified the requests which are made upon him by or-, ganizations asking that he attend their meetings for the purpose of informing him concerning their interest in specified legislation. • * » Some organzalions, of course, employ lobbyists whose sale duties are to inform the legislators as to the merits or demerits of certain bills in regard to how their particular group feels. There are also other organizations who, while having legislative interest, do not employ actual lobbyists but who include the Members of Congress in their business and social meetings merely to maintain friendly relaH tionships. There are also other meetings or. conferences which are held by the various branches of the Government which are called "briefing sessions" for the purpose of informing the Members as to the latest policies of the Government in respect to that branch which gives the briefing. • * * Further, not to be classified in any lesser position are the requests that come from the constituents of the District, for these requests, in large part, are the purposes for which Congressmen are in Washington. These requests vary in kind almost as many as there are number. The Congressman thereby contacts the many agencies of the Government in .order to fulfill the requests of the people in the home district. Also coming to the attention of the Congressman in a very personal way are the people who come into the Washington office from the District. These people the Congressman is always glad to see for they are a very real 'contact with what is going on at home. • » t The House Agriculture Committee is continuing hearings on corn legislation. I have this week been in attendance at nearly all of the sessions of the Agriculture Committee when those sessions did not conflict with attendance at my own Banking and Currency Committee meetings. In this way it is possible for me to know what is going on for the good of business and for the farmer. I am not certain at this point when the hearings on the corn legislation will be concluded but it is my hope that the delay will not be long and that good legislation will come from this Committee. We are always glad to know the thinking of those who read this) column as it pertains to the legislation which comes before the Congress. Be sure to let me know what your Congressman can do in order to serve the best interest of all the people. Merwin Coad Member of Congress Mf and Mti Q. A.
