Alternatively, the injured person can reject the offer and take his chances on negotiating for a settlement on the basis of proving that the other driver is legally responsible.

(AP Wire- photo) Bill to Renew Authority of Renegotiation. Board Tabled fey JEAN HfcLLfift Associate* Press Writer WASHINGTON (Af») - The authority <rf the Renegotiation Board, only independent govern' ment agency empowefed to re* cover excess profits on defense and space contracts, expired this week while a bill to renew it remained tabled in the Senate Finance Committee. Since its organization 17 years ago,'the Renegotiation Board has recovered $952 million in ex- cess'profits, and claims that Its existence has spurred contractors to voluntarily return another $1.3 billion. The board did not go out of business when its authorization act expired Sunday midnight. Chairman Lawrence E. Hartwig said it has enough of a work backlog to keep it operable for another two years. And appropriations voted by Congress for the fiscal year that started Monday provides funds for the board until at least next summer. However, if the Renegotiation Act is not renewed, profits real ized by defense and space contractors after June 30 would not be subject to renegotiation—the process by which the federal government retrieves excess payments. The House approved and senl to the Senate on May 27 a bill which would Wiftew the Renegotiation Act for three yesrs, The senate Finance .Gomnutue dte cussed the measure in executive session June 12 then set it aside, said a committee staff member, until "additional information" was gathered. The committee- spokesman said Monday that much of the information, which concerned exemptions from the act's jur. isdiction, had been obtained but that the committee probably couldn't resume work on the bill until next week. If the act is renewed, he said, it would be roactive to June 90. 'As long as tte act is renewed seon and as long as .that renewal is retroactive, we should be okay," said Chairman Hartwig in an interview, The Renegotiation Board was set up under the Renegotiation Act of 1951.
