MEMORANDUM TO THE PRESS
FROM JOHN W. GARDNER
CHAIRMAN
THE URBAN COALITION ACTION COUNCIL
I wanted you to have an advance copy of my testimony before
the House Ways and Means Committee on the pending welfare reform
legislation. A long-standing commitment will prevent my personal
appearance at the hearing on the date made available by the
Committee; but the testimony will be presented by one of my associates.
It is of the highest importance that we get sound legislation
in this field. We are faced with an extraordinary opportunity to
replace our ineffective, even destructive, public assistance programs with a national system of income maintenance that will help
people help themselves and give hope and dignity to those left
behind by society.
The Urban Coalition and the Urban Coalition Action Council
will give the issue top priority for the months ahead.
