MAI.OY TIMES Washington Rureitu ' WASHINGTON -- Here is a roundup of news items gathered , by the staff of our Washington ( Bureau. R K F O R M -- Another effort '· is unrlenvay lo make Congress more efficient and it is running '; into heavy oppositioin. , The impending fight illustrates the practical difficulty of · , trying to gel any institution to reform itself. The proposed reform plan · would reorganize the cnnimiltec system of the House of Representatives for the first · time in nearly three docadcs. ·', It is (he product of a year-long, : $1 million bipartisan sluily. The real work of Congress is ' done in (he committees, and the = reason Congress consistrntb fails lo pleasure up to " responsibilities is lhal the present committee system if " disorganized. The reform plan, which wn ·= originally put in motion ls Speaker Carl Albert and then ' Minority Loader Gerald Ford would reshuffle the committee " system to give each panel clea ' l i n e s o f authority a m jurisdiction. It also would give each House member only om · commitlce assignment, ralhc ' than Ihe two or three whicl most members now have. The reform plan must firs win approval of the I Ions Democratic Caucus before i can come up for a vote on th House floor. And the Demi crals who control the House '· are badly split over th proposal. · The problem is that th reform plan takes power awa from some existing commute '- chairmen, dillutes the author)t : of members who now serve o · several important committee; and dislurbs co/.y relalionship · which now exist helwcc · committees and many specii interest groups. Accordingly there will be major effort inside Ihc Bern' cratic caucus early this monl .· to sciitllc the reform plan b ' ordering another study. .- Rep. Richard Boiling.
