The legislative history of this law prepared jointly by the U.S. Senate Committee on Government Operations, chaired by Senator Abraham Ribicoff, and the U.S., House Government Operations Subcommittee on Government Information and Individual Rights, chaired by Rep. Bella Abzug; the full House committee was chaired by Rep. Jack Brooks.
