Message to the Congress Transmitting the 1986 Annual Report on the Radiation Control for Safety and Health Act

April 24, 1987

To the Congress of the United States:

In accordance with Section 360D of the Public Health Service Act, I am submitting the report of the Department of Health and Human Services regarding the administration of the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act during calendar year 1986. The cost to prepare this report was $10,780.

The report recommends that Section 360D of the Public Health Service Act that requires the completion of this annual report be repealed. All the information found in this report is available to the Congress on a more immediate basis through Congressional committee oversight and budget hearings and the FDA Annual Report. This annual report serves little useful purpose and diverts FDA resources from more productive activities.

Ronald Reagan

The White House,

April 24, 1987.
