TESTIMONY OF REESE H. TAYLOR, JR., CHAIRMAN, INTERSTATE
COMMERCE COMMISSION, ACCOMPANIED BY RAY ATHERTON,
I might say, before turning the floor over to you, that I wanted to report to you that your trip to Los Angeles some months ago is still bearing good fruit. Recently, I spoke to a meeting of truckers in northern California. They were talking about you up there. We had at least three northern California trucking executives saying how nice it was to meet with you in Los Angeles. When you get San Francisco business executives to say that about Los Angeles, you know you have made points.
A little before the election, a gentleman from the railroad industry commented how nice the visit with you was. When I spoke to the Counsel of Teamsters in Los Angeles, during the campaign, one of the nice remarks of the gentleman that introduced me, was that I had you come out to California.
I want you to know that when you have the truckers, the railroaders, and Teamsters complimenting you, you must have done something right. We will have to get you back out there again.
Mr. TAYLOR. Thank you, Mr. Chairman; I would like to go out there any time.
I spent about a half day in southern California looking at some of the Mexican problems we have had. I am looking forward to the opportunity during the waning days of the session, if you have the time, to come over and discuss some of those problems with you.
Mr. ANDERSON. Have you made a report of that?
Mr. TAYLOR. I have some interim staff reports at this point in time. They are trying to firm up some suspicions we have about some activities that are going on, and I would like to fill you in on that.
Mr. ANDERSON. Yes, we would like to have that very much.
Mr. TAYLOR. Also, in line with that, I had the opportunity to address the American Movers Conference in San Diego in October, and I brought along some copies of my speech and some of the things that I am going to talk about today that were elaborated on in that speech.
If we might, I would like to have that made a part of the record. Mr. ANDERSON. Without objection, so ordered. [The information follows:)
INTERSTATE COMMERCE COMMISSION
CHAIRMAN REESE H. TAYLOR, JR.
AMERICAN MOVERS CONFERENCE
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
OCTOBER 7, 1982
IT'S A GREAT PLEASURE FOR ME TO BE HERE TODAY. I HAVE REALLY BEEN
LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE WITH YOU - HERE IN THE BEAUTIFUL
CITY OF SAN DIEGO - SOME THOUGHTS ON MATTERS OF CONCERN TO BOTH THE MOVING
INDUSTRY AND THE 1.C.C
HOWEVER, BEFORE LAUNCHING INTO MY REMARKS ABOUT THE PRESENT, AND A LITTLE
CRYSTAL BALL GAZING AS TO THE FUTURE, PERHAPS A BRIEF REFERENCE TO SOME RECENT
HISTORY WILL PLACE CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES IN A MORE MEANINGFUL PERSPECTIVE.
AS I'M SURE MOST OF YOU KNOW, THERE WAS A PERIOD OF TIME, WHICH LASTED
UNTIL JUST A SHORT TIME AGO, WHEN THE MOVING INDUSTRY AND THE 1.C.C. WERE
REALLY AT LOGGERHEADS WITH REGARD TO INDUSTRY PRACTICES AND 1.C.C. RULES AND
FURTHERMORE, MANY OF THE PROBLEMS WHICH APPARENTLY GAVE RISE TO THE
CONTENTION WERE NOT COMPLETELY RESOLVED BY THE HOUSEHOLD GOODS TRANSPORTATION
ACT. NEW REGULATIONS IMPLEMENTING THE ACT WERE IMMEDIATELY CHALLENGED IN THE
COURTS, AND ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE FINALLY BEEN IMPLEMENTED, THESE NEW REGULATIONS
HAVE NOT BEEN IN EFFECT FOR A SUFFICIENT PERIOD OF TIME TO ENABLE EITHER THE
INDUSTRY OR THE COMMISSION TO MAKE A THOROUGH ASSESSMENT OF THEIR USEFULLNESS,
WORKABILITY, OR NECESSITY.
HOWEVER, IF THERE'S ONE THING WE HAVE LEARNED FROM THIS ALL-T00-RECENT
PERIOD OF PROLONGED AND SOMETIMES IMPASSIONED CONTROVERSY, IT'S THE FACT THAT
FAR MORE CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED BY WORKING TOGETHER ON SOLUTIONS TO OUR PROBLEMS
THAN BY STRIKING OUT SEPARATELY IN THE CONTEXT OF AN ADVERSARY RELATIONSHIP.
WITH THIS LESSON IN MIND, WE AT THE 1.C.C. HAVE BEEN GENUINELY STRIVING,
DURING MY TENURE AS CHAIRMAN, TO BROADCAST THE MESSAGE THAT ALTHOUGH THE
COMMISSION HAS RESPONSIBILITIES TO MANY DISPARATE GROUPS, OUR PRIMARY
RESPONSIBLITY TO ALL GROUPS, IN THESE DIFFICULT YEARS, IS TO PROPAGATE THE
REALIZATION THAT CHALLENGING TIMES PRODUCE REAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR THOSE THAT
ARE ALERT ENOUGH TO SEIZE UPON THEM.
TOWARD THIS END, WE HAVE BEEN SEEKING TO PROVIDE A MEASURE OF INSPIRATION
TO ALL THOSE THAT COMPRISE OR DEAL WITH OUR NATION'S SURFACE TRANSPORTATION
WE ARE NOW MORE CONVINCED THAN EVER THAT "INSPIRATION" IS WHAT IT WILL
TAKE TO SEE OUR SURFACE TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRIES SAFELY THROUGH THE TURBULENT,
TRANSITIONAL PERIOD WE ARE NOW EXPERIENCING.
LEST ANY OF US FORGET, IT WAS TRANSPORTATION THAT BUILT AMERICA - WITH
ROADS AND RAILS AND CANALS AND PIPELINES CARRYING ECONOMIC GROWTH INTO EVERY
CORNER OF OUR REPUBLIC.
THE GREAT PROGRESS WE HAVE ACHIEVED IN THIS COUNTRY HAS COME FROM
INSPIRATION-NURTURED FREE ENTERPRISE AND THE DYNAMIC TRANSPORTATION NETWORK IT
HAVING NOT LOST SIGHT OF THIS HERITAGE, WE AT THE COMMISSION ARE NOW
TRYING TO ENGENDER A REBIRTH OF INSPIRATION THAT WILL SUSTAIN ALL OF US IN OUR
CONTINUING PURSUIT OF DEREGULATORY OBJECTIVES, AS WE PROGRESS IN A MANNER AND
AT A PACE DESIGNED TO MINIMIZE DISRUPTION FOR ALL CONCERNED WHILE THE ONCE
HEAVY HAND OF REGULATION IS BEING GRADUALLY RELAXED.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT TO THE EXTENT THE 1.C.C. HAS BEEN PART OF THE
PROBLEM IN TIMES PAST, WE ARE NOW FERVENTLY DEDICATED TO BECOMING PART OF THE
