           P.L.  478 -- 80th Cong.
             Ch. 180 -- 2d Sess.

          Railroad reorganization has been
the subject of Congressional consideration
since 1943.  During the 78th Congress, hear-
ings were held by the House Committee on the
Judiciary and a bill (H. R. 4960) reported,
but no other action was taken.  At the end
of the second session of the 79th Congress,
S. 1253 was passed by both House and Senate.
This bill was the culmination of previous
legislation considered in both the 78th and
79th Congresses.  The President, however,
vetoed the measure.  As an out growth of
S. 1253, H. R. 3980 and S. 249 were introduce(
in the 80th Congress by Representative Reed
of Illinois and Senator White respectively.
The substance of these bills was incorDorated
in H. R. 2298 as it was finally enacted into
Public Law 478.
