         Government funds were used by the Naticnal Commission
on the Observance of Łnternational Woments Year to promote the
ratification of  he Fqual Rights Amen;ment to the Constitution
.f the United States. Findings/Conclusions: In June 1,476,
Public; Law 94-303 was approved, prohibiting the Commission frop
lobby.Lng. Up until that time, the Commission's lobbying
activities on behalf of the Equal Rights amendment were not
illegal. The question of what lobbying activities are prohibited
is belcre the Federal courts, which recently enjoined the
Commission, during pendency of an appeal, from expending public
funds for representations -o any legislators, State or Federal.
For fiscal years 1975 and 1976, six Federal agencies, without
proper legal authority, provided the Commission with $245,000.
An additional $54,860 was provided by the Department of State
under sufficient legal authority. Twelie employees corting about
$298,974 were detailed to the Commission from nine Federal
agencies. Only one of the staff assignments was improper. The
activities of White House employees intended to promote the
ratification of the amendment by the several States did not
violate the antilobbying laws. (Author/SC)
