HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
SUBCOMMITTEE ON COMMERCE AND FINANCE
OF THE COMMITTEE ON INTERSTATE AND FOREIGN COMMERCE,
Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met at 10 a.m., pursuant to call, in room 1334, Longworth House Office Building, Hon. Gillis W. Long presiding.
Mr. Long. The subcommittee will come to order please.
This morning the subcommittee has before it a matter which has a great deal of interest all over the country. It is beginning hearings on a number of bills which propose to deal in different ways with the difficult subject of time uniformity. This question has been before the Congress at various times in the past. It has never failed to evoke strong feelings on the part of almost everybody since most everybody feels personally involved. I doubt that things have changed very much in this respect.
As Congress has continued to sidestep the question of time uniformity, the effects of the lack of uniformity are making themselves felt more and more. This has led numerous important organizations in the fields of industry, finance, transportation, and communication to band together for the purpose of securing congressional action at the earliest possible time on this controversial subject. Later this morning we shall hear from their representatives.
At this point in the record, however, I would like to insert the bills which are pending before the subcommittee, and the departmental reports on these bills. (The bills and reports referred to follow :)
[H.R. 2335, 88th Cong., 1st sess.) A BILL To amend the Standard Time Act of March 19, 1918, so as to provide that the
standard time established thereunder shall be the measure of time for all purposes Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the first sentence of section 2 of the Act entitled “An Act to save daylight and to provide standard time for the United States”, approved March 19, 1918, as amended (15 U.S.C. 262), is hereby amended to read as follows: "Within the respective zones established under the authority of this Act the standard time of each such zone shall be the measure of time for all purposes."
SEC. 2. Such Act is further amended by redesignating section 5 as section 6 and by inserting before such section the following:
"SEC. 5. (a) It shall be unlawful for any place of business or commercial enterprise to use, maintain, or display any standard of time for any zone established under the authority of this Act other than the standard time established by this Act for such zone. Any individual, corporation, partnership, or association willfully violating the provisions of this subsection shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not more than $100.
