VP^-Tlie new labor law? It'« still llfcf uidutched «gg that's being bounced around. And nobody knows wtml kmd of bird !< going to come out. We'rt itlfl quite i distance from having a new labor law. We maj not h»v« one Jor a couple of months. And no one at Ihls ml mite can predict what It will look like, But by this time • maybe you're contused on the whole subject because «o much already has been said »nd written about It and a good m»nj people get foggy on the difference between a bill and a law. So here's » review on what's happened and what lies ahead. In 1935 the Democrats, then in control, of Congress, passed the Labor liked it. Labor Employers didn't. Came 1941 when the Republicans controlled Con- E ™ SJ ' passed the Tflfl-Haitley „ Act, almost completely changing the old Wngner act. Employer! liked the new one. Labor didn't. Then came the elections In November. 1948. : Getting the support of labor, which was sore at the Republicans, .. . (he Democrats promised to wipe both houses approve. Even then and bring back the Wagner act. SUM Long W»y to Go This Is where the difference between a bill and a In* comes In. When a bill Is offered In Con gross, it goes to one committee ii the House, another In the Senate The committees can kill the bl! by doing nothing about It. The do thai witli many bills. Or they hold hearings on a bit letting friends nnd fries testify Then the committee approves tfo bill, with or without char-Res of II own In the measure. After that the bill goes to 11 full House and Senate lor debai and vote. Even a bill already chaog ed by committee may be changi -some more during debate on tl [loor of both houses. A bill can't become law unle 11 As soon »s it was introduced went lo the Senate and House bor committees. Almost Bt once the Senate com- lltce began hcnrlngs. These last- j lor weeks. And on Friday the Dinmillee approved the Democrats' bor bill, unchanged. This was asy to do. The Democrats outnumber Ihe .cpubllcmw on lh« committee, 8 o 5. The Democrats, having con- •crt of Concress, CAII say how many en each parly has on a commit- ee.

The out the TaR-Hartley act and restore the old Wagner net tf they won. Which meant they controlled Congress. : After this new, 81st congress opened up In January. President Truman's Democratic advisers offered can't be law unless: 1. The President approves and signs it into law. 2. Or, if he disapproves and vetoes the bill by refusing to sign it, both houses re-pass it over his Jepiibllcans" voted solidly against It. I'hcy wanted to make changes In t. 'I'V-e Democrats wouldn't let ; hem. Tills v,eek -be House Labor Com- .nltlce. where Democrats oulnum- jer Ihe Republicans. 18 to 9. began hearings on Ihe bill. The result llicre probably will be the same as the Ben:ite commiltee. Then bnil) houses have to vole. Hut (he bill may be chanced sharply on Ihe floor of both Houses before' the vole is taken. Why? Although the Democrats have a majority In both houses, some of Ihem nlmosl surely will vote with Republicans '•> make chances. Before the bill, passed by both houses can become law. It must go lo the president. If he signs it Into law. In spite of (lie changes, that's II. nut suppose the changes displease him. He may veto Ihe bill.
