EXTENSION OF RESTRICTIONS ON IMPORTED CITRUS

FRUITS, DATES, AND FIGS

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1958

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, SPECIAL ACTION SUBCOMMITTEE ON DOMESTIC MARKETING

OF THE COMMITTEE ON AGRICULTURE,

Washington, D. C. The subcommittee met pursuant to notice at 10 a. m., room 1310, New House Office Building, Washington, D. C., Harlan Hagen presiding.

Present: Representatives Hagen, Anfuso, Hill, and Teague of California.

Also present: Representative McIntire. Francis M. LeMay, staff consultant. Mr. HAGEN. This meeting will come to order.

This meeting of the Domestic Marketing Subcommittee is being held in the absence of the chairman, Mr. Grant, who is in Alabama, and is for the purpose of considering bills to amend section 8e, Agricultural Marketing Act of 1933, as amended. Basically, this section provides that whenever with respect to certain commodities there are grade and quality standards in marketing orders any imports will conform to the standards of quality, and so forth, that the domestic product conforms to under those marketing orders. In this section there are certain commodities named which have this protection.

These bills propose to add to that list of commodities. And we will hear the authors of those bills and other witnesses.

As I say we only have an hour, and there is a representative here from the Department of Agriculture and from the Food and Drug Administration. The bills we shall consider are the following: H. R. 9056 (Hagen), H. R. 7760 (Sisk), H. R. 7832 (Haley), H. R. 7937 (Saund), and H. R. 8845 (McFall).

(The bills are as follows:)

Mr. HAGEN. The first witness I have on the list is Congressman Sisk, who would add certain citrus fruits and fig products to this list of specified commodities.

You can take whatever time you need.
