This paper was initiated as a study of Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1966--how it was proposed and factors in its Congressional consideration. After I became more involved in the subject, it became apparent that Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1966 had perhaps a much more interesting history and significance than the then current composition of Congress and the approach of the Administration to lubricate the wheels of government. While researching this study, my emphasis shifted from the immediate political situation to the longer-range developments since enactment of the first permanent, modern water pollution control legislation in 1956.I was not able to include the effects of the deceased President Kennedy or of the deceased Senator Kerr in this paper, although their actions in the early 1960's could have had significant effects on the course of developments.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
