This compilation has been prepared for use by the Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare and the House Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce in reviewing and evaluating current legislative proposals in the field of public health and quarantine," which is one of the major areas within each committee's legislative jurisdiction. Since many legislative proposals in this field are in the form of proposed amendments to the Public Health Service Act or to related public health laws, it is necessary to have in readily available form an up-to-date compilation of these basic health laws. Such a compilation should also be useful to other congressional committees with related legislative jurisdictions, as well as to various public and voluntary agencies and groups affected by or interested in Federal legislation in this field.

Included in the compilation are the Public Health Service Act, as amended, which is the most comprehensive Federal law relating to public health; the Mental Retardation Facilities and Community Mental Health Centers Construction Act of 1963; the Clean Air Act; the Solid Waste Disposal Act; the Narcotic Addict Rehabilitation Act of 1966; the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act; the Federal Hazardous Substances Act; the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act; and several other laws pertaining to Indian health or to mental retardation. In addition, the compilation includes Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1953 and Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1966, which effected major changes in the administrative structure and distribution of health functions within the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, plus Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1968, relating to administration of laws on drug abuse. In each case, the statutory provisions as printed in this compilation include all amendments enacted through the 90th Congress. Thus, they represent statutory provisions in effect in January of 1969.
