Courts Martial Legislation

A Study of the Proposed Legislation to Amend the Articles of War
(H. R. 2575); and to Amend the Articles for the Government of the Navy
(H. R. 3687; S. 1338)
80th Congress, 2nd Session, January 20, 1948

This committee print was designed to assist the members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Chairman Senator John Chandler (Chan) Gurney, in their consideration of the legislation that became the Elston Act (H.R. 2575). It provides a summary of the proposed Elston Act as well as a summary of a section-by-section analysis of both the Army (S. 903 (H.R. 2575)) and Navy (S. 1338 (H.R. 3687)) bills, the provisions of which formed the basis of the enacted legislation (the Elston Act). This print also appears as Microfiche S1288 of the CIS U.S. Congressional Committee Prints Index. (Library of Congress Call Number KF7203.5 and OCLC Number 61452136)
