ARTS AND ARTIFACTS INDEMNITY ACT, 1975

Joint Hearings

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4, 1975

U.S. SENATE,
SPECIAL SUBCOMMITTEE ON ARTS AND HUMANITIES,
COMMITTEE ON LABOR AND PUBLIC WELFARE,

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE,
SELECT SUBCOMMITTEE ON EDUCATION,
COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION AND LABOR,

Washington, D.C. The joint hearings convened, pursuant to notice, at 1:30 a.m., in room 4232, Dirksen Senate Office Building, the Honorable Claiborne Pell presiding

Present: Senators Pell, Mondale, Javits; Representatives Brademas, Lehman and Pressler.

Senator Pell. The joint hearing of the Special Subcommittee on Arts and Humanities of the Committee on Labor and Public Welfare and the Subcommittee on Select Education of the House Committee on Education and Labor will come to order.

This morning we will hear testimony on that portion of S. 1800 and H.R. 7216 dealing with the Arts and Artifacts Indemnity Act.

This proposed legislation concerns itself with a subject which has been discussed on the Hill, in museums, and at other Federal agencies, for quite some time. It would, in essence, establish a Federal program of indemnity to cover exhibitions which are brought to the United States as part—and this is an important point-of our ongoing international cultural activities.

At this point in the record I ask that the texts of S. 1800 and H.R. 7216 be printed. [The bills referred to follow:]
