INTERDEPARTMENTAL COMMITTEE FOR THE STUDY OF JURISDICTION OVER FEDERAL
AREAS WITHIN THE STATES,
APRIL 25, 1956
DEAR MR. ATTORNEY GENERAL: The Committee has completed its studies of the
factual aspects of legislative jurisdiction over Federal areas within the
several States, and of the Federal and State laws relating thereto, and herewith
submits for your consideration and for transmission to the President its report
subtitled "Part I. the Facts and Committee Recommendations." Part II
of the Committee's report will be completed within the next several months. It
will be a text of the law on the subject of legislative jurisdiction,
particularly covering judicial decisions and rulings of legal officers of
administrative agencies concerning the subject. It is the view of the Committee
that the two mentioned parts of the report are sufficiently different in their
contents and purposes that they may issue separately.
Respectfully submitted, PERRY
W. MORTON, Assistant Attorney General (Chairman). MANSFIELD D.
SPRAGUE, General Counsel, General Services Administration
(Secretary). MAXWELL H. ELLIOTT, General Counsel, General
