The'House Com-i sus figures Houston is the sixth largest, city In the nation population Avith 932,680 residents,'. an merce Committee rebuffed his efforts to add such a provision when it approved the bill earlier this month. Bennett later blamed lobbying pressure by the broadcasting in- fii m udustry. dustry for defeat of his proposal. He said the action left "woefully deficient." To help assure Senate consideration despite the adjournment drive, the House committee attached its bill to a minor Senate- passed measure dealing with applications for broadcast licenses. Assuming the House passes it, this would eliminate the need for separate action by a Senate committee. The bill stems from the series of headline-making Inquiries by the House Legislative Oversight subcommittee into quiz show fix. ing and undercover. payoffs to disc jockeys to plug records. The bill would make both payola and quiz show rigging criminal offenses punishable by up xo one year in prison and $10,000 fine. It would require that oil broadcast matter for >vliich any kind of payment, direct or indirect, is made must be identified on the air as being paid. Broadcast station licensees also would be required to "exercise reasonable diligence" to determine whether payola is occurring.
