Committee on Education and Labor, 1967 - 1984

 Sub-Series

Scope and Contents

From the Series:

Materials are broken down into five series. The first two subseries chronicle the activities of the Committee on Government Operations and the Committee on Education and Labor (and their subcommittees), the most active committees of which Erlenborn was a member. His activities on the Committee on Government Operations were mostly concerned with the Social Sercurity Administration and government accountability in all forms, though he was also passionalte about the Freedom of Information Act and was instrumental in passing the Privacy Act of 1974. When the Department of Education was established in 1978, Erlenborn voiced his objection to the DOE through both this committee and the Committee on Education and Labor. Erlenborn also championed causes involving youth employment, child nutrition, and standardized tests through the Committee on Education and Labor, but was best known for his links with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as well as his research contribiuting to the Coal Mine Health and Safety Act. Detailed accounts of the Kepone pesticide incident at Hopewell, Virginia, the Scotia Mine disaster of 1976, and the Hyden, Kentucky coal mine explosion of 1971 are included here.
The third subseries contains the majority of Erlenborn's ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Sercurity Act) materials. Other ERISA materials are present in the series for the Committee on Education and Labor and can be found under the name of each individual bill. Erlenborn's activities on the Committee on Population are also found here, and deal mainly with family planning issues and adolescent pregnancy, and include drafts of the committee's proposed policies on population in the United States. Reports and studies from Erlenborn's brief participation in the National Commission for Student Financial Assistance are also found here.
