ABSTRACT
The article focuses on various legislative developments in the U.S. The House passed 704 bills, the Senate only 684, and President Jimmy Carter signed 209 of them into law. The Carter administration has proposed for various reforms related to labor and welfare, election, taxation, energy reform, hospital costs, and a consumer protection agency. The minimum wage of labor had been raised to $2.65 from $2.30 in 1978, with a floor of $3.35 mandated by 1981. The House also passed a bill supported by the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations, which strengthened the National Labor Relations Board. On December 16, the House and Senate finally voted a Social Security tax law that will reduce taxes on the upper salary levels.
