NorthwMt Arkansas TIMES, Wed., Od. 2, 1974 · FAVETTIVILtl, A«KAN«A« By 180 To 209 House Vote Consumer Redress Bill Killed WASHINGTON -- Here's how Arkansas* Members of Congress were recorded on major roll call v o t e s Sept. 19 through Sept. 25. IN THE HOUSE CONSUMER REDRESS -Rejected, 180 for and 209 against, an amendment allowing the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to file lawsuits -without going through the Justice Department -- In behalf of individual consumers seeking redress from allegedly deficient product warranties. The amendment was proposed to HR 7917, a bill giving the FTC more legal clout to enforce consumer protection laws and setting higher product warranty standards. The bill is now in the Senate. Sponsored bv Rep. Bob Eckhardt (D-Tex.), It reflected the Consumer Federation of Ameri- a's contention that consumer redress suffers f r o m being ihanneled through the Justice Jepartment, which is less apt o litigate for consumers than he FTC. Eckhardt said the ougher policy is needed because "it is not adequate to slap the violator on the hand and say 'Don't do It again.' " Opposition centered on the question of the FTC's legal authority. The Justice Department position was that the amendment would give the agency undue entry into prosecutorial .areas. Rep. Samuel Young (R-I1I.) called the amendment a "radical" move lhat would "put the FTC in' the business of acting as a collection agent" for consumers. Reps. Bill Alexander (D-l) and Ray Thornton (D-4) voted "yea " Reps. Jphn Hammerschmidt (R-3) and Wilbur Mills (D- 2) voted "nay."

"It's an act of . mercy. I can't afford to raise v them and I can't give them away. Nobody wants them. Feed just costs too much." Greenway is spokesman for the Cross Timbers Milk and Beef Producers Association, sponsors of the mass slaughter. Texas Agriculture Commissioner John C. White said Tuesday he would be in Stephenville this morning. White said in a telegram asked' the cattlemen to delay the slaughter, "I recognize that · everything your members saj about the depressed conditions of dairy and livestock men Is ·-~ true, without question ... but i ·· is my earnest hope that your ~ planned actions tomorrow can ';-' be averted."

Greenway, who has been in he agriculture business 35 years, said lie is not concerned with the possibility the mass slaughter could generate hostil- ty from the nonagriculture public.

Supporters argued lhat a doctor-draft is "a cure worse than the disease" and said the scholarship approach will p u t an estimated 4,000 doctors in under-served areas ' within four years of the bill's enactment. M a n y opponents argued against the legislation on philosophical grounds. Sen. Peter Domenici (R-N.M.) called it "servitude" and Sen. James Buckley (C-N.Y.) siad it subsidizes the rich by lowering the "cost of medical training to those very people who can anticipate very high earning during their professional careers." Other opponents fully agreed with the objective but preferred federal inducements other than tht scholarship approach. McClelldQ and Fulbright voted "yea."
