Description

A newspaper article from Florida TODAY endorsing Representative Lou Frey, Jr. (1934-) for reelection to the U.S. House of Representatives. Rep. Frey served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1969 to 1979. He was on several committees during his time in office, including the Select Committee on Narcotics Abuse and Control and the Science and Technology Committee. He was also the chairman of the Young Republicans of Florida.

The article notably acknowledges that Rep. Frey's difficulty in getting some of his introduced bills passed was more due to the workings of the Congress than the congressman himself. This explanation sheds light on the reasons for the lack of passage of some congressional bills, including several bills introduced by Rep. Frey that would establish a Veterans Administration (VA) hospital in Brevard County.

Transcript

Last spring, TODAY's congressional correspondent included the following in a review written on the congressman: "...Frey's legislative record is sparse, reflective more of the ways of Congress than of any lack of effort on his part. Legislation introduced by Republicans doesn't get much attention, without the co-sponsorship of Democrats, but Frey has a few major bills that have some chance of really winning passage. Among them is a bill to set up federal standards for the construction of mobile homes, and one to increase passage for veterans of WWI. Frey has also authorized a model state law for the rehabilitation of narcotics addicts, which passed in several states..." (The mobile home bill has since passed.)
