Congress Reconvenes With President Urging Action On His Unfinished Program
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14.—— The 79th congress began its second session at noon (EST) today with a request to its leaders by President Truman to expedite action on his unfinished legislative program.
Acting House Speaker McCormack of Massachusetts told reporters the president declared at a White House conference with congressional leaders that he was ‘Very anxious” for early action on his legislative program.
McCormack said the entire program was discussed at the White House in a general way, and the strike situation was reviewed.
Strike Situation First
He quoted the president as believing early action imperative on his proposal for a law setting up fact-finding boards to handle major labor controversies and providing for a 30-day cooling off period before strikes take effect.
Senator Eastland (D-Miss) told reporters he would seek immediate senate action on the factfinding legislation asked by the president.
“We’ve either got to get out tome strike legislation or surrender the country to the CIO,” he said.
As the lawmakers reconvened, Mr. Truman sent them a recommendation that appropriations and contract authorizations be cut back bv $5,021,887,483.
