Investigative Asymmetry

Evans, M. Stanton
September 1977
National Review;9/2/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 34, p997
This article reports that a bill has been presented in the U.S. House of Representatives (HR-48) to re-establish the U.S. House Internal Security Committee. The aim of the bill is to let the committee investigate the attempt by the Soviet Union and Cuba to influence the U.S. Congress, and the rising level of revolutionary violence. U.S. Representatives Lawrence P. McDonald and John M. Ashbrook are the main sponsors of this corrective legislation. HR-48 would strengthen the committee's mandate to deal with problems of domestic and international terror. The House Internal Security Committee had been abolished two years ago.
