Summary
This collection focuses on national policy formation in the health and energy domains during the 1970s in the United States. It investigates the role of consequential organizational actors, both public and private, who contributed to the national debate and influenced decision-making in these domains. Organizations participating in this survey included congressional committees and subcommittees, federal agencies, associations of state and local governments, research units, labor unions, trade associations, professional societies, corporations, and public interest groups. The principal investigators interviewed individuals who had responsibility for managing the efforts of their organization in attempting to influence national policy-making. Respondents were asked to evaluate the role of their organization in 85 specific events related to energy policy and 85 events related to health policy over the decade of the 1970s. These events revolved around national health areas such as biomedical issues (e.g., NIH funding, DNA research, human experimentation, targeted-disease funding), manpower issues (nurse training, physician training, foreign medical graduates, third-year medical school transfers), the organization and delivery of care (cost containment, HMOs, health planning, community health services, rural health care, Professional Standards Review Organizations), and drug regulation (saccharin, new drug development, generic equivalents of brand-name drugs, safety brochure inserts, cyclamates). The energy domain included events in the following areas: energy research issues (geothermal energy, electric-powered automobiles, breeder reactors, nuclear wastes), energy industry development issues (Trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline, uranium enrichment, synthetic fuels, oil from shale rock), energy regulatory issues (price controls on domestic oil and natural gas, nuclear accident insurance, National Energy Plan, natural gas deregulation, Three Mile Island, nuclear power plant construction), and energy consumption issues (55-mile-per-hour speed limit, energy taxes, air pollution standards, automobile fuel efficiency standards). Respondents were queried about the main activities and functions of their organizations, areas of interest in national policy-making, interactions with other organizations, and levels of knowledge and involvement in the formulation of such policies
