Description Newsletter by Congressman Bill Brock, Dated July 1965. Issues include Aide to Education, Medicare, Poverty, Appalachia, Middle-income Housing, Voting Rights, and the Repeal of Right to Work laws. Brock points to his involvement in the formation of the Ford-McCulloch Bill, although it was defeated by the "determined efforts of the Administration." He then lists his complaints with the Administrations bill, citing state discrimination, use of percentage formula to prove discrimination, and abolishing the poll tax. Brock justifies his voting "no" on the Voting Rights Act. Brock highlights a "bright note" in the reductions of federal excise taxes, which would save $53 million for Tennesseans. He closes with positive words about the Tennessee Army National Guard, which he had the chance to visit.
