While the committee, headed by Rep. Buchanan (D-Pa.), has
charted no fixed course and probably won't for several more weeks,
Buchanan told newsmen It may be guided largely by a Library
of. Congress report on lobbying.
This report, prepared by W.
Brooke Graves of the legislative
referense service, says: '
"Some of the fields in which
lobbies have been or are now esp
ecially active" include"the tariff
lobby; the natural resources lob
by In its various forms; the
real estate group, battling again
st any kind of public housing
program: the air lines lobby
the agriculture lobby, and the
dramatic struggle between the
representatives of the dairy int
erests and the oloemargarine
Inhere active lobbies, the re
port continued, Include those in
terested in business, education,
health, labor, military and vet
During the first six months of
1H4M, tne report said, more tnan
$3,500,000 was spent on lobbying
activities. The heavier outlays
were said to have been made
by groups interested in displaced
persons legislation and In bills
to repeal the tax on oleomargar
ine, and to provide a government
medical service program.
During that period, the report
said, nine groups or organizat
ions had lobby expenditures ex
ceeding $100,000 each, while
eight others spent between $50,
ooo and $100,000 and 20 between
$25,000 and $50,000.
