The House has passed a cargo preference bill (HR 8193) which requires that 20% initially, and 30% by 1977, of the oil imported into the U.S. be shipped in U.S. commercial flag vessels.

The LWV opposes this bill: it would invite retaliation by other countries, set a precedent for other cargo preference legislation, and affect consumer oil prices.

Let our senators know that you do not want this! (see your roster for correct salutation and address ). And watch your newspaper for energy hearings in our Capitol Building on October 11th and 12th. The hearings allow public input preceding the development of Project Independence's blueprint.
