The Inter-American Foundation is an independent Federal agency that

supports social and economic development in Latin America and the
Caribbean. It makes grants primarily to private, indigenous organizations
that carry out self-help projects benefiting po or people.

The Inter-American Foundation was created by Congress in 1969

(22 U.S.C. 290f) to support the self-help efforts of poor people in Latin
America and the Caribbean. The Foundation was established because of
congressional concern that traditional p rograms of development assistance
were not reaching poor people. Instead of working through governments, the
Foundation responds directly to the initiatives of the poor by supporting
local and private organizations. Approximately 75 percent of the Foundat
ion's funds are derived from congressional appropriations and the
remainder from the Social Progress Trust Fund of the Inter-American
Development Bank.

The Foundation is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors

appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate. By
law, six members of the Board are from private organizations and three are
from the Government.

The Foundation has made 3,642 grants, totaling over $385 million
in 36 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. Most grants are made
to private, grassroots organizations, including community associations and
small urban enterprises or to la rger organizations that work with local
groups and provide them with credit, technical assistance, training, and
marketing services. A small number of grants each year are made to centers
in Latin America and the Caribbean for research on the problems of poor
people and grassroots development.

[For the Interstate Commerce Commission statement of organization, see the

Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49, Part 1011]


[Insert Interstate Commerce Commission chart]@U0

The Interstate Commerce Commission regulates interstate surface

transportation, including trains, trucks, buses, water carriers, household
goods transporters, freight forwarders, transportation brokers, and
pipelines that are not regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission. The regulatory laws vary depending on the type of
transportation; however, they generally involve certification of carriers
seeking to provide transportation for the public and regulation of their
rates, adequacy of service, and carrier consolidations. The Commission
assures that the public receives shipping rates and services that are fair
and reasonable.

The Interstate Commerce Commission was created as an independent

regulatory agency by act of February 4, 1887 (49 U.S.C. 10101 et seq.),
now known as the Interstate Commerce Act.

The Commission's responsibilities include regulation of carriers

engaged in transportation in interstate commerce and in foreign commerce
to the extent that it takes place within the United States. Surface
transportation under the Commission's j urisdiction includes railroads,
trucking companies, bus lines, household goods transporters, freight
forwarders, water carriers, transportation brokers, and pipelines that are
not regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The Commission's authority has been strengthened and its

jurisdiction broadened by subsequent legislation, such as the Hepburn Act,
the Panama Canal Act, the Motor Carrier Act of 1935, and the
Transportation Acts of 1920, 1940, and 1958.

However, in more recent legislation, beginning with the Railroad

Revitalization and Regulatory Reform Act of 1976 (45 U.S.C. 801), the
Commission's statutory mandate has been altered to provide for less
regulation over carrier rates and practice s. This fundamental shift in
national transportation policy has proceeded in the Motor Carrier Act of
1980, the Staggers Rail Act of 1980, the Household Goods Transportation
Act of 1980, the Bus Regulatory Reform Act of 1982, and the Surface
Freight Forwa rder Deregulation Act of 1986. These measures provided for a
sharply reduced Federal role in regulating the trucking, railroad, and bus

The Chairman is designated by the President from among the

Commissioners. The Commissioners elect their own Vice Chairman annually
and may delegate certain duties and functions to individual Commissioners
or to boards consisting of not less than three eligible employees.

Field offices are maintained in various cities to monitor the

utilization of railroad freight cars in order to avoid severe shortages,
investigate violations of the Interstate Commerce Act and related laws,
and provide assistance to the public i n its use of regulated carriers
that provide transportation by railroad, highway, and waterway.


In broad terms and within prescribed legal limits, Commission

regulations encompass transportation economics and service.

In the transportation economics area, the Commission settles

controversies over rates and charges among regulated carriers, shippers,
receivers of freight, passengers, and others. It rules upon applications
for mergers, consolidations, and acqui sitions of control. It prescribes
accounting rules and awards reparations and administers laws relating to
railroad bankruptcy. It acts to prevent unlawful discrimination,
destructive competition, and rebating. It also has jurisdiction over the
use, contr ol, supply, movement, distribution, exchange, interchange, and
return of railroad equipment. Under certain limited conditions, the
Commission is authorized to direct the handling and movement of traffic
over a railroad and its distribution over other line s of railroads.
In the transportation service area, the Commission grants the
right to operate railroads, trucking companies, bus lines, household goods
transporters, freight forwarders, water carriers, and transportation
brokers. It also approves applications to construct and abandon railroad

Although public hearings on matters before the Commission may be

held at any point throughout the country, final decisions are made at the
Washington, DC, headquarters in all formal proceedings. These cases
include rulings upon rate changes, app lications to engage in for-hire
transport, carrier mergers, adversary proceedings on complaint actions,
and punitive measures taken in enforcement matters.

Consumer protection programs involve ensuring that the public

obtains full measure of all transportation services to which entitlement
is guaranteed by the Interstate Commerce Act. This law ensures that rates
will be fair and service will be rea sonable. Discrimination, preferential
treatment, or prejudicial actions by carriers are illegal, and instances
of such violations should be brought to the attention of the Commission at
its headquarters or any field office.

[For the Merit Systems Protection Board statement of organization, see the
Code of Federal Regulations, Title 5, Part 1200]

[Insert Merit Systems Protection Board chart]@U0

The Merit Systems Protection Board protects the integrity of Federal merit
systems and the rights of Federal employees working in the systems. In
overseeing the personnel practices of the Federal Government, the Board
conducts special studies of the merit systems, hears and decides charges
of wrongdoing and employee appeals of adverse agency actions, and orders
corrective and disciplinary actions when appropriate.

The Merit Systems Protection Board is a successor agency to the

United States Civil Service Commission, established by act of January 16,
1883 (22 Stat. 403). Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1978 (5 U.S.C. app.),
effective January 1, 1979, pursuant to Executive Order 12107 of December
28, 1978, redesignated part of the Commission as the Merit Systems
Protection Board. The Board's duties and authority are specified in 5
U.S.C. 1201-1206.


The Board has responsibility for hearing and adjudicating

appeals by Federal employees of adverse personnel actions, such as
removals, suspensions, and demotions. It also resolves cases involving
reemployment rights, the denial of periodic step increases in pay, actions
against administrative law judges, and charges of prohibited personnel
practices, including charges in connection with whistleblowing. The Board
has the authority to enforce its decisions and to order corrective and
disciplinary actions. An employee or applicant for employment involved in
an appealable action that also involves an allegation of discrimination
may ask the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to review a Board
decision. Final decisions and orders of the Board ca n be appealed to the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

The Board reviews regulations issued by the Office of Personnel

Management and has the authority to require agencies to cease compliance
with any regulation that could constitute a prohibited personnel practice.
It also conducts special studies of the civil service and other executive
branch merit systems and reports to the President and the Congress on
whether the Federal work force is being adequately protected against
political abuses and prohibited personnel practices.

Planning, coordinating, and controlling Administration programs

are vested in Headquarters. Directors of field installations are
responsible for the execution of agency programs, largely through
contracts with research, development, and manufacturing enterprises. A
broad range of research and development activities are conducted in field
installations by Government-employed scientists, engineers, and
technicians to evaluate new concepts and phenomena and to maintain the
competence required to manage contracts with private enterprises.

Planning, directing, and managing research and development

programs are the responsibility of eight program offices, all of which
report to and receive overall guidance and direction from the
Administrator. The overall planning and direction ofinstitutional
operations at the field installations and management of agencywide
institutional resources are the responsibility of the appropriate
Institutional Associate Administrator under the overall guidance and
direction of the Administrator.


The Office of Aeronautics is responsible for conducting programs that

pioneer the identification, development, verification, transfer,
application, and commercialization of high-payoff aeronautics
technologies. The Office seeks to promote economic growth and security and
to enhance U.S. competitiveness through safe, superior, and
environmentally compatible U.S. civil and military aircraft, and through a
safe, efficient national aviation system. In addition, the Office is
responsible for managing the Ames, Langley, and Lewis Research Centers.

[Insert National Capital Planning Commission chart]@U0

The National Capital Planning Commission is the central agency for

conducting planning and development activities for the Federal Government
in the National Capital region. The region includes the District of
Columbia and all land areas within the boundaries of Montgomery and Prince
Georges Counties in Maryland and Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, and
Arlington Counties in Virginia.

The National Capital Planning Commission was established as a

park planning agency by act of June 6, 1924, as amended (40 U.S.C. 71 et
seq.). Two years later its role was expanded to include comprehensive
planning. In 1952, under the National Capital Planning Act, the Commission
was designated the central planning agency for the Federal and District of
Columbia governments.

In 1973, the National Capital Planning Act was amended by the

District of Columbia Home Rule Act, which made the Mayor of the District
of Columbia the chief planner for the District; however, the Commission
continues to serve as the central planning agency for the Federal
Government in the National Capital region.

The Commission is composed of five appointed and seven ex

officio members. Three citizen members, including the Chairman, are
appointed by the President and two by the mayor of the District of
Columbia. Presidential appointees include one resident each from Maryland
and Virginia and one from anywhere in the United States; however, the two
mayoral appointees must be District of Columbia residents.


The Commission has three primary functions: comprehensive

planning to ensure the orderly development of the Federal Establishment
and protection of Federal interests in the National Capital region, plan
and program review, and preparation of the Federal Capital Improvements

Comprehensive Planning

The Comprehensive Plan is a statement of policies dealing with the growth

and development of the National Capital and consists of both Federal and
District elements. It is an important planning tool that provides a
framework for policy decisions regarding physical development proposed by
Federal, State, local, and regional agencies.

The Commission's comprehensive planning function involves

preparation and adoption of Federal elements of the Comprehensive Plan for
the National Capital, as well as review -- for Federal interests, of
District or non-Federal elements of the Comprehensive Plan that are
prepared by the mayor and adopted by the Council of the District of
Columbia. If any District element is determined to have a negative impact
on Federal interests, the Commission may veto it.
Plan and Program Review

The Commission's plan and program review function consists of reviewing

plans and programs proposed by Federal, State, regional, and local
agencies or jurisdictions in the National Capital region. This function
provides the Commission with an opportunity to coordinate plan and program

Following this review the Commission, with regard to certain

types of projects, provides the sponsoring agency with comments and
recommendations. Approval by the Commission must be obtained prior to
construction of Federal public buildings in the District of Columbia and
District of Columbia buildings in the central area of the District.

Each Federal or District project comes to the Commission for

review at several stages. The first submission by an agency may be a
master plan for an entire installation or facility. Plans for construction
of individual projects implementing a master plan are submitted to the
Commission at both the preliminary and the final stages.

Federal Capital Improvements Programming

Another comprehensive planning activity is the preparation, adoption, and

updating of the Five-Year Federal Capital Improvements Program, a
``budget'' schedule for Federal physical improvements throughout the
National Capital region. It is prepared by the Commission in order to
systematically review proposed Federal agency projects with regard to
timing, location, and financing, and to coordinate agency development
plans throughout the region.

A Federal Capital budget represents the first year of the 5-year

program and consists of capital outlay requests for the region contained
in the President's fiscal year Federal budget transmitted to Congress. The
program for the second through fifth years incorporates Commission
recommendations to Federal agencies and the Office of Management and
Budget for subsequent budget submissions to Congress.

Additional Activities

Other Commission responsibilities include review of all proposed zoning

regulations, map changes, and amendments to the District of Columbia
zoning ordinance in order to ensure consistency of zoning regulations
with Federal interests and with the Comprehensive Plan.

The Commission also:

-- adopts urban renewal area boundaries;

-- prepares, adopts, and modifies urban renewal plans;

-- approves the Permanent System of Highways Plan;

-- recommends proposed street and alley closings;

-- approves transfers of jurisdiction between Federal and

District agencies;
-- approves the sale of surplus property and park land; and

-- acquires land for parks and parkways in the National Capital


The Commission serves the entire National Capital region by

coordinating Federal planning and development with the planning activities
of State, local, and regional agencies and jurisdictions.

The National Credit Union Administration Board is responsible for

chartering, insuring, supervising, and examining Federal credit unions and
administering the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. The Board
also manages the Central Liquidity Facility, a mixed-ownership Government
corporation whose purpose is to supply emergency loans to member credit

The National Credit Union Administration was established by act

of March 10, 1970 (12 U.S.C. 1752), and reorganized by act of November 10,
1978 (12 U.S.C. 226), as an independent agency in the executive branch of
the Federal Government. It regulates and insures all Federal credit unions
and insures State-chartered credit unions that apply and qualify for share



The Administration's Board grants Federal credit union charters to groups

sharing a common bond of occupation or association, or groups within a
well-defined neighborhood, community, or rural district. A preliminary
investigation is made to determine if certain minimum standards are met
before granting a Federal charter.

For further information, contact the appropriate regional office listed in

the table on page 657.


Supervisory activities are carried out through annual examiner contacts

and through periodic policy and regulatory releases from the
Administration. The Administration also maintains a warning system
designed to identify emerging problems as well as to monitor operations
between examinations.


The Administration conducts annual examinations of Federal credit unions

to determine their solvency and compliance with laws and regulations and
to assist credit union management and operations.

For further information, contact the Director, Office of Examination and

Insurance. Phone, 202-682-9640.

Share Insurance

The act of October 19, 1970 (12 U.S.C. 1781 et seq.), provides for a
program of share insurance. The insurance is mandatory for Federal credit
unions and for State-chartered credit unions in many States and is
optional for other State-chartered credit unions that meet Administration
standards. Credit union members' accounts are insured up to $100,000. The
National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund requires each insured credit
union to place and maintain a 1-percent deposit of its insured savings
with the Fund.

For further information, contact the Director, Office of Examination and

Insurance. Phone, 202-682-9640.

[Insert National Endowment for the Humanities chart]@U0

The National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities encourages and
supports national progress in the humanities and the arts.

The National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities was

created as an independent agency by the National Foundation on the Arts
and the Humanities Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 951). The Foundation consists of
a National Endowment for the Arts, a National Endowment for the
Humanities, a Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities, and an
Institute of Museum Services. Each Endowment has its own Council, composed
of the Endowment Chairman and 26 other members appointed by the President,
which advises the Chairman with respect to policies and procedures and
reviews applications for financial support while making recommendations

The Federal Council on the Arts and Humanities consists of 20

members, including the two Endowment Chairmen and the Director of the
Institute of Museum Services, and is designed to coordinate the activities
of the two Endowments and related programs of other Federal agencies. Four
members are excluded from the Federal Council when it is considering
matters under the Arts and Artifacts Indemnity Act (20 U.S.C. 971).

National Endowment for the Arts

The National Endowment for the Arts supports the visual, literary, and
performing arts to benefit all Americans by fostering artistic excellence
and developing the Nation's finest creative talent; by preserving and
transmitting our diverse cultural heritage; by making the arts more
accessible to all Americans; by promoting the vitality of arts
institutions; and by making the arts intrinsic to education.

The Arts Endowment serves as a catalyst to increase

opportunities for artists and resources for arts organizations. It
promotes involvement in the arts by citizens, public and private
organizations, and States and local communities. The agency awards grants
to nonprofit arts organizations in support of outstanding performances,
exhibitions, projects, and programs; provides fellowships to exceptionally
talented American artists to stimulate the creation of new works of art,
to expand the Nation's artistic resources, and to promote preservation of
the country's cultural heritage; and funds projects whose goal is to
educate, formally or informally, both children and adults in the arts.
Also, it disburses program funds to State arts agencies and local and
regional organizations in order to promote broad dissemination of the arts
across America. Its grantmaking is conducted through the following
programs: Challenge and Advancement, Dance, Design Arts, Expansion Arts,
Folk Arts, International, Literature, Media Arts, Museums, Opera-Musical
Theater, Presenting and Commissioning, Theater, Visual Arts, Arts in
Education, Local Arts Agencies, and State and Regional.

Institute of Museum Services

The Institute of Museum Services is an independent, grant-making agency

established by Congress in 1976 to assist museums in maintaining,
increasing, and improving their services to the public.

The Institute of Museum Services (IMS) was created by the Museum

Services Act (20 U.S.C. 961 note). In December 1981, pursuant to title II
of the act of Dec. 23, 1981 (20 U.S.C. 961, 962), the Institute was
established as an independent agency within the National Foundation on the
Arts and the Humanities. The Institute's Director is appointed by the
President with the advice and consent of the Senate, and is authorized to
make grants to museums subject to policy directives and priorities set by
the National Museum Services Board. The Board is comprised of 15
Presidentially appointed nonvoting members and 5 ex officio nonvoting

The Institute awards grants on a competitive basis to support

the efforts of museums to conserve the Nation's historic, scientific, and
cultural heritage; to maintain and expand their educational role; and to
ease the financial burden borne by museums as a result of their increasing
use by the public. The Institute awards grants to all types of museums,
including but not limited to art, history, general, children's, natural
history, science and technology, historic houses, zoos and aquariums,
botanical gardens and arboretums, nature centers, and planetariums.

The Institute currently makes grants in seven categories:

General Operating Support, Conservation Project Support, Museum Assessment
Program, Professional Services Program, Conservation Assessment Program,
Technical Assistance, and Museum Leadership Initiatives. General Operating
Support grants are 2-year competitive awards that maintain or improve the
operations of museums. Conservation Project Support grants are annual
competitive awards, for projects lasting up to 2 years, that provide funds
for various conservation efforts. Museum Assessment Program grants are
one-time awards made to museums to provide for an independent,
professional assessment of their programs and operations. Conservation
Assessment Program grants are one-time awards made to museums to assess
the condition of their environment and collections, to identify
conservation needs and priorities. Professional Services Program grants
provide funding to national, regional, State, or local private, nonprofit
professional museum organizations and associations for proposals designed
to strengthen museum services. Technical Assistance grants provide funds
to small, emerging minority and rural museums for training and other
implementation activities. Museum Leadership Initiatives support projects
that establish mentoring relationships between at least two parties, one
of whom is a museum staff member.

[For the National Labor Relations Board statement of organization, see the
Federal Register of June 14, 1979, 44 FR 34215]

The National Labor Relations Board administers the Nation's principal

labor law, the National Labor Relations Act. The Board is vested with the
power to prevent and remedy unfair labor practices committed by private
sector employers and unions and to safeguard employees' rights to organize
and determine, through secret ballot elections, whether to have unions as
their bargaining representative.
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is an independent
agency created by the National Labor Relations Act of 1935 (Wagner Act)
(29 U.S.C. 167), as amended by acts of 1947 (Taft-Hartley Act), 1959
(Landrum-Griffin Act), and 1974 (Health Care Amendments).

The act affirms the right of employees to self-organization and

collective bargaining through representatives of their own choosing, to
engage in other protected, concerted activities, or to refrain from such
activities. The act prohibits certain unfair labor practices by employers
and labor organizations or their agents. It authorizes the Board to
designate appropriate units for collective bargaining and to conduct
secret ballot elections to determine whether employees desire
representation by a labor organization.

As of July 1, 1971, the Postal Reorganization Act (39 U.S.C.

note prec. 101) conferred jurisdiction upon the Board over unfair labor
practice charges and representation elections affecting U.S. Postal
Service employees. As of August 25, 1974, jurisdiction over all privately
operated health care institutions was conferred on the Board by an
amendment to the act (29 U.S.C. 152 et seq.).


Under the act, NLRB has two principal functions: preventing and
remedying unfair labor practices by employers and labor organizations or
their agents; and conducting secret ballot elections among employees in
appropriate collective-bargaining units to determine whether or not they
desire to be represented by a labor organization in bargaining with
employers about their wages, hours, and working conditions. The agency
also conducts secret ballot elections among employees who have been
covered by a union-security agreement to determine whether or not they
wish to revoke their union's authority to make such agreements. In
jurisdictional disputes between two or more unions, the Board determines
which competing group of workers is entitled to perform the work involved.
Secret ballot elections are conducted among NLRB employees concerning
employers' final settlement offers in national emergency labor disputes.

Two major, separate components comprise NLRB. The Board itself

has five members appointed by the President and primarily acts as a
quasi-judicial body in deciding cases on the basis of formal records in
administrative proceedings. The General Counsel, also appointed by the
President, is independent from the Board.

In unfair labor practice cases, the General Counsel has final

authority to investigate charges, issue complaints, and prosecute such
complaints before administrative law judges and the Board. The General
Counsel, on behalf of the Board, prosecutes injunction proceedings;
handles courts of appeals proceedings to enforce or review Board decisions
and orders; participates in miscellaneous court litigation; and obtains
compliance with Board orders and court judgments. The General Counsel is
responsible for supervising personnel who process unfair labor practice
charges and election petitions.

Under the general supervision of the General Counsel, 33

regional directors and their staffs process representation, unfair labor
practice, and jurisdictional dispute cases. (Some regions have subregional
or resident offices.) They issue complaints in unfair labor practice
cases; seek settlement of unfair labor practice charges; obtain compliance
with Board orders and court judgments; and petition district courts for
injunctions to prevent or remedy unfair labor practices. The regional
directors direct hearings in representation cases; conduct elections
pursuant to the agreement of the parties or the decision-making authority
delegated to them by the Board or pursuant to Board directions; and issue
certifications of representatives when unions win or certify the results
when unions lose employee elections. They process petitions for bargaining
unit clarification, for amendment of certification, and for rescission of
a labor organization's authority to make a union-shop agreement. They also
conduct national emergency employee referendums.

NLRB can act only when it is formally requested to do so.

Individuals, employers, or unions may initiate cases by filing charges of
unfair labor practices or petitions for employee representation elections
with the Board field offices serving the area where the case arises.

In the event that a regional director declines to proceed on a

representation petition, the party filing the petition may appeal to the
Board. When a regional director declines to proceed on an unfair labor
practice charge, the charging party may appeal to the General Counsel.

For details concerning filing such appeals with those

Washington, DC, offices, parties may contact the field office most
convenient to them. Field office addresses and telephone numbers are
listed below.

Administrative law judges conduct hearings in unfair labor

practice cases, make findings of fact and conclusions of law, and
recommend remedies for violations found. Their decisions can be appealed
to the Board for a final agency determination. The Board's decisions are
subject to review in the U.S. Courts of Appeals.

National Railroad Adjustment Board

Room A931, 175 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, IL 60604

Phone, 312-886-7300

The National Mediation Board, in carrying out the provisions of the

Railway Labor Act, assists in maintaining a free flow of commerce in the
railroad and airline industries by resolving disputes that could disrupt
travel or imperil the economy. The Board also handles railroad and airline
employee representation disputes, and provides administrative and
financial support in adjusting minor grievances in the railroad industry
under section 153 of the Railway Labor Act.

The National Mediation Board was created on June 21, 1934, by an

act amending the Railway Labor Act, as amended (45 U.S.C. 151-158,
160-162, 1181-1188).

The Board's major responsibilities include the mediation of

disputes over wages, hours, and working conditions that arise between rail
and air carriers and organizations representing their employees; and the
investigation of representation disputes and certification of employee
organizations as representatives of crafts or classes of carrier

Disputes arising out of grievances or interpretation or

application of agreements concerning rates of pay, rules, or working
conditions in the railroad industry are referable to the National Railroad
Adjustment Board. This Board is divided intofour divisions and consists of
an equal number of representatives of the carriers and of national
organizations of employees. In deadlocked cases the National Mediation
Board is authorized to appoint a referee to sit with the members of the
division for the purpose of making an award.

In the airline industry no national airline adjustment board has

been established for settlement of grievances. Over the years the employee
organizations and air carriers with established bargaining relationships
have agreed to grievance procedures with final jurisdiction resting with a
system board of adjustment. The Board is frequently called upon to name a
neutral referee to serve on a system board when the parties are deadlocked
and cannot agree on such an appointment themselves.


Mediation Disputes

The National Mediation Board is charged with mediating disputes between

carriers and labor organizations relating to initial contract negotiations
or subsequent changes in rates of pay, rules, and working conditions. When
the parties fail to reach accord in direct bargaining either party may
request the Board's services or the Board may on its own motion invoke its
services. Thereafter, negotiations continue until the Board determines
that its efforts to mediate have been unsuccessful, at which time it seeks
to induce the parties to submit the dispute to arbitration. If either
party refuses to arbitrate, the Board issues a notice stating that the
parties have failed to resolve their dispute through mediation. This
notice commences a 30-day cooling-off period after which self-help is
normally available to either or both parties.

Employee Representation

If a dispute arises among a carrier's employees as to who is to be the

representative of such employees, it is the Board's duty to investigate
such dispute and to determine by secret-ballot election or other
appropriate means whether or not and to whom a representation
certification should be issued. In the course of making this
determination, the Board must determine the craft or class in which the
employees seeking representation properly belong.

Additional Duties

Additional duties of the Board include the interpretation of agreements

made under its mediatory auspices; the appointment of neutral referees
when requested by the National Railroad Adjustment Board; the appointment
of neutrals to sit on system boards and special boards of adjustment; and
finally, the duty of notifying the President when the parties have failed
to reach agreement through the Board's mediation efforts and that the
labor dispute, in the judgment of the Board, threatens substantially to
interrupt interstate commerce to a degree such as to deprive any section
of the country of essential transportation service. In these cases, the
President may, at his discretion, appoint an Emergency Board to
investigate and report to him on the dispute. Self-help is barred for 60
days after appointment of the Emergency Board.

Section 9A of the Railway Labor Act (45 U.S.C. 159a) provides

emergency dispute procedures covering publicly funded and operated
commuter railroads and their employees. That section attempts to resolve
contract disputes between the parties through a series of emergency board
procedures with a maximum 8-month status quo period. Section 9A is invoked
only after all other procedures under the act have been exhausted.

[For the National Railroad Passenger Corporation statement of

organization, see the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49, Part 700]

The National Railroad Passenger Corporation was established to develop the

potential of modern rail service in meeting the Nation's intercity
passenger transportation needs.

The National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak) was created

by the Rail Passenger Service Act of 1970, as amended (45 U.S.C. 541), and
was incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia to provide a
balanced national transportation system by developing, operating, and
improving U.S. intercity rail passenger service.

Amtrak is governed by a nine-member board of directors: The

Secretary of Transportation serves as an ex officio member and Amtrak's
president serves as Chairman; three members (representing labor, State
Governors, and the business community) are appointed by the President with
the advice and consent of the Senate; two members represent commuter
authorities; and two members are selected by the preferred stockholder.
The Corporation is managed by its president along with two executive vice
presidents, eight vice presidents, and three assistant vice presidents.

Amtrak operates an average of 210 trains per day, serving over

500 station locations, over a system of approximately 25,000 route miles.
Of this route system, Amtrak now owns a right-of-way of 2,611 track miles
in the Northeast Corridor (Washington-New York-Boston; New
Haven-Springfield; Philadelphia-Harrisburg), and several small track
segments in the East, purchased pursuant to the Regional Rail
Reorganization Act of 1973 (45 U.S.C. 701 et seq.) and the Railroad
Revitalization and Regulatory Reform Act of 1976 (45 U.S.C. 801 et seq.).

Amtrak owns or leases its stations and owns its own repair and
maintenance facilities. The Corporation employs a total work force of
approximately 25,000 and provides all reservation, station, and on-board
service staffs, as well as train and engine operating crews. Outside the
Northeast Corridor, Amtrak has historically contracted with 21 privately
owned railroads for the right to operate over their track and has
compensated each railroad for its total package of services. Under
contract, these railroads are responsible for the condition of the roadbed
and for coordinating the flow of traffic.

In fiscal year 1993, Amtrak transported 22.1 million people

approximately 6.2 billion passenger miles. In addition, under contracts
with several transit agencies, Amtrak carried 29.3 million commuters.

Although Amtrak's basic route system was originally designated

by the Secretary of Transportation in 1971, modifications have been made
to the Amtrak system and to individual routes that have resulted in more
efficient and cost-effective operations. Currently, in the face of ongoing
budget constraints, new service will only be added if a State agrees to
share any losses associated with the service or if the new service does
not substantially add to Amtrak's need for Federal assistance.
Amtrak began operation in 1971 with an antiquated fleet of
equipment inherited from private railroads; some cars were nearly 30 years
old. Since then, the fleet has been modernized and new state-of-the-art
single- and bi-level passenger cars and locomotives have been added.

Systemwide ridership is steadily rising, and Amtrak is finding

it increasingly difficult to meet the demands of increased travel patterns
with its limited passenger fleet. To ease these equipment constraints, the
Corporation is working to identify innovative funding sources in order to
acquire additional passenger cars and locomotives.

There is no rail passenger system in the world that makes a

profit; Amtrak is no exception. However, Amtrak has made significant
progress in reducing its dependence on Federal support. Every year Amtrak
moves further toward increasing the ratioof its earned revenue to total
costs. The Corporation has gone from covering 48 percent of its total
costs in fiscal year 1981 to 80 percent in fiscal year 1993. One of
Amtrak's highest priorities is to focus on consumer needs in an effort to
improve service, increase ridership, and reduce the need for Federal

Federal Register of February 8, 1993, 58 FR 7587-7595, and May 27, 1993,
58 FR 30819]

The National Science Foundation promotes the progress of science and

engineering through the support of research and education programs. Its
major emphasis is on high-quality, merit-selected research -- the search
for improved understanding of the fundamental laws of nature upon which
our future well-being as a nation depends. Its educational programs are
aimed at ensuring increased understanding of science and engineering at
all educational levels, maintaining an adequate supply of scientists and
engineers to meet our country's needs.

The National Science Foundation was established as an

independent agency by the National Science Foundation Act of 1950 (42
U.S.C. 1861-1875).

The purposes of the Foundation are: to increase the Nation's

base of scientific and engineering knowledge and strengthen its ability to
conduct research in all areas of science and engineering; to develop and
help implement science and engineering education programs that can better
prepare the Nation for meeting the challenges of the future; and to
promote international cooperation through science and engineering. In its
role as a leading Federal supporter of science and engineering, the agency
also has an important role in national policy planning.

The Foundation consists of a National Science Board and a

Director. The National Science Board is composed of 24 part-time members
and the Director ex officio. Members are appointed by the President with
the advice and consent of the Senate, for 6-year terms. They are selected
because of their distinguished service in science, medicine, engineering,
agriculture, education, public affairs, research management, or industry.
They are chosen in such a way as to be representative of the scientific
and engineering leadership in all areas of the Nation.

Both the Director and the Deputy Director are appointed by the
President with the advice and consent of the Senate, to a 6-year term and
an unspecified term, respectively.

The National Science Foundation Act assigns policymaking

functions to the National Science Board, and the administration of the
Foundation to the Director. The policies of the Board in support of
science and engineering and development of scientific and engineering
personnel are implemented throughout the various programs of the

The Inspector General of the Foundation is appointed by the

National Science Board and, under section 8E of the Inspector General Act
of 1978 (5 U.S.C. app. 3), is responsible for conducting and supervising
audits, inspections, and investigations relating to the programs and
operations of the Foundation, including allegations of misconduct in

The National Science Foundation initiates and supports
fundamental, long-term, merit-selected research in all the scientific and
engineering disciplines. This support is made through grants, contracts,
and other agreements awarded to universities, university consortia, and
nonprofit and other research organizations. Most of this research is
directed toward the resolution of scientific and engineering questions
concerning fundamental life processes, natural laws and phenomena,
fundamental processes influencing the human environment, and the forces
affecting people as members of society as well as the behavior of society
as a whole.

The Foundation supports fundamental research on computing and

information processing, provides U.S. research and education communities
with advanced computing and communications capabilities, and encourages
innovative use of sophisticated computing in science and engineering

The Foundation encourages cooperative efforts by universities,

industries, and government. It also promotes the application of research
and development for better products and services that improve the quality
of life, create employment opportunities, stimulate economic growth, and
increase productivity and foreign trade.

The Foundation promotes the development of research talent

through support of precollege, undergraduate, and graduate students, as
well as postdoctoral associates. It administers special programs to
identify and encourage participation by groups underrepresented in science
and technology and to strengthen research capability at smaller
institutions, small businesses, undergraduate colleges, universities, and
geographic regions.

The Foundation supports major national and international science

and engineering activities, including the U.S. Antarctic Program, the
Ocean Drilling Program, global geoscience studies, and others. Cooperative
scientific and engineering research activities support exchange programs
for American and foreign scientists and engineers, execution of jointly
designed research projects, participation in the activities of
international science and engineering organizations, and travel to
international conferences.

Support is provided through contracts and cooperative agreements

with national centers where large facilities are made available for use by
qualified scientists and engineers. Among the types of centers supported
by the Foundation are astronomy and atmospheric sciences, biological and
engineering research, science and technology, supercomputers, and
long-term ecological research sites.

The Foundation provides competitively awarded grants for repair,

renovation, or, in exceptional cases, replacement of facilities used for
research and research training at academic and nonprofit institutions.

The Foundation's science and engineering education activities

include grants for research and development activities directed to model
instructional materials for students and teachers and the application of
advanced technologies to precollege education. Grants also are available
for precollege teacher preparation and enhancement, and informal science
education activities. At the undergraduate level, funding is provided for
college science instrumentation, course and curriculum improvement,
faculty and student activities, and minority resource centers. In
addition, studies of the status of math, science, and engineering
education are supported.

The Foundation supports research aimed at formulating national

policy through analysis of existing and emerging issues that have
significant scientific and engineering content. It defines options and
supplies analysis directed toward enhancing the contribution of science
and engineering to national goals. It also develops and disseminates
information relating to the Nation's available human and financial
resources for scientific and engineering activities.

The National Science Foundation presents annually the Alan T.

Waterman Award to an outstanding young scientist or engineer for support
of research and study. Periodically the National Science Board presents
the honorary Vannevar Bush Award to aperson who, through public service
activities in science and technology, has made an outstanding contribution
toward the welfare of mankind and the Nation. The two awards are designed
to encourage individuals to seek to achieve the Nation's objectives
inscientific and engineering research and education.

The Foundation also provides support for the President's

Committee on the National Medal of Science.
