Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - October 10, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Thurs., Oct. 10. 1971 Culver Role in Change 9 F f niconf By Dorothy Williams WASHINGTON. D.C. Hep. John C. Culver is leaving his mark on the U.S. house of representatives. When he departs the house at the end of this year, either to enter the U.S. senate or to return to private life, he will be leaving behind an institution considerably changed from when lie entered it ten years age. The Cedar Rapids Democrat can lake major credit for bringing about those changes. Almost as long as he has represented Iowa's Second congressional district. Culver has called for and worked to- ward modernixalion of the way Ihe house does business. His persistent efforts resulted in creation of a bipartisan com- mittee to reform house structure. Hep. Idchard Boiling headed this panel and Culver was a member. After an intensive study of the house orgamxation and its ability to respond tn present-day problems, the Boiling committee came up with sweeping reform recommendations. Because these recommendations would rob many senior members of power and would upset many political apple carts, they ran into lough opposition both inside and outside Ihe house. But this week Ihe house, to use Culver's words. "Did adopt significant reforms in operations and procedures thai would never have been achieved without our efforts. "Making this much progress against Ihe heavy opposition of powerful interest groups augurs well for further progress in succeeding congresses." Culver admits he is disappointed that the house rejected some of Ihe proposals for new jurisdictioiial alignment of committees In reflecl more accurately Ihe concerns of today's world. He is disappointed, loo. that Ihe house junked some provisions for more follow-up on the results of legislation. But. on the plus side, he sees the house machinery as greatly improved in efficiency. Take the ways and means commiltee. for instance. Al- though Ihe house allowed this group lo keep its heavy respon- sibility of lax. tarrif. health and welfare legislation, it re- quired the establishment of four subcommittees lo speed han- dling of work in these areas. The reform also led lo creation of a select commiltee on the aging and brought new legislative powers lo the small business committee. House There in-c- changes in procedure, loo.

Speaking of (lie Boiling committee's work, Culver told The "We've plowed lids ground. 1 think we have set in miitimi the pressures for change as well as the background to work on." Tile lowan also pointed on! the house is now "way ahead of the senale in all reforms."
