INSTITUTE FOR CONTINUING STUDIES OF JUVENILE
JUSTICE



WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28, 1971

House of Representatives,

Subcommittee No. 3 of the
Committee on the Judiciary,

Washington, D.C.

The subcommittee met at 10 a.m. in room 2226, Rayburn House
OflEice Building, Hon. Robert W. Kastenmeier (chairman of the sub-
committee) presiding.

Present: Representatives Mikva, Drinan, Railsback, Biester, Fish
and CoughUn.

Also Present: Herbert Fuchs, counsel, and Thomas E. Mooney,
associate counsel.

Chairman Kastenmeier. The hearing will come to order.

Subcommittee No. 3 is meeting this morning to receive testimony
on H.R. 45, H.R. 46, and H.R. 47, and related bills, to amend title 18
of the United States Code by adding a new chapter 404 to establish
an Institute for Continuing Studies of Juvenile Justice. These measures
have already been the subject of 2 days of public hearings before the
subcommittee in the 91st Congress on H.R. 14950 of that Congress.

The bills would create an institute concerned with juvenile de-
linquency problems. The institute would be entirely independent of
existing government departments and agencies. It would create and
make available a short term training program for law enforcement
officers, welfare workers, juvenile judges and probation and correction
personnel. It would also provide an information bank or clearing house
for disseminating current data and would provide continuing educa-
tion for persons working with juvenile delinquency.

Eight bills embodying this legislation have been introduced in the
House. The sponsors and cosponsors currently aggregate 103 members,
I understand.

A copy of H.R. 45 and a list of the identical House bills and their
authors will be inserted in the record at this point.

Few would deny the urgency of legislative action that will review
and stregthen our policies and practices in the area of juvenile justice.
On the other hand, the Chair notes that at the hearings on the 91st
Congress measure, witnesses from the Department of Justice and the
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, while enthusiastically
endorsing the objectives of the bill, asserted that those objectives
are now being pursued under the Law Enforcement Assistance Act
and other existing law. They questioned the need for an additional
agency to pursue the same ends in substantially the same way.
Witnesses who have light to throw on this issue should feel free to do so.

Before we call our witnesses, I would like to call on the gentleman
from Illinois, Mr. Railsback, the principal sponsor of the measure,
who in the 91st Congress contributed to the consideration of this
measure so seriously, for comment.

Mr. Railsback. Mr. Chairman, my remarks will be very brief.
I want to thank you for all of the consideration that you have given
to those of us who have cosponsored this measure. I am very pleased
to report that in the House of Representatives we have 103 sponsors,
and I particularly want to thank my colleague from Illinois, Congress-
man Abner Mikva, and I want to thank my colleague from Pennsyl-
vania, Congressman Blester, both of whom sit on the subconimittee.

I am more convinced than I have ever been that our juvenile
justice system has not been coordinated, and has not been operating as
effectively as it can. I think there is too much fragmentation. I think
there is a need for some kind of a sharing of expertise and dissemination
of exactly what is going on in the field of juvenile delinquency. And I
want to say that my experience goes back to the days of the Illinois
Legislature when, with Mr. Mikva, we worked a juvenile reform act
which we think has greatly improved the system of juvenile justice in
the State of Illinois.

My concern is that our correctional institutions, instead of re-
habilitating, have been making adult criminals out of one-time
youthful offenders. I can't help but think that this legislation is
unique in that it would bring together under one roof for the first
time, a multidiscipline approach. This bill would not just provide for
law enforcement but, also, the means whereby probationary, judicial,
and correctional personnel together could share their training and
expertise. This legislation would focus attention on what I really
think is a most significant part of the crime problem.

I want to thank Senator Bayh and Senator Percy who have taken
the leadership in the Senate, and I understand that they have a
substantial number of cosponsors over in the Senate. So we are
