Federal Coal Mine Health Activities
Message to the Congress Transmitting a Report.
July 13, 1978

To the Congress of the United States:

I transmit herewith the 1976 Annual Report of Health Activities under the Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969.

I recommend that the statutory reporting requirement for this report be changed from once every year to once every three years. HEW staff resources and time could be better spent on more research rather than on the preparation of annual reports of largely repetitious material. Basic information in this field has been known for SO, he time, and new findings develop only slowly and infrequently. All of the information contained in this report is available to Congress during annual appropriations and oversight hearings, and HEW will inform Congress immediately of any scientific breakthroughs in the field.

This report describes activities prior to the beginning of my Administration.
JIMMY CARTER.

The White House,

July 13, 1978.

NOTE: The 33-page report is entitled "The Federal Coal Mine Health Program in 1976: Seventh Annual Report of Health Activities Under the Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969—U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Center for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health."
