Opening Statement By The Chairman.

The Chairman (Senator Gallinger). We are here to consider Senate bill 7041, entitled A bill to provide for reports and registration of all cases of tuberculosis in the District of Columbia, for free examination of sputum in suspected cases, and for preventing the spread of tuberculosis in said District. I take it for granted that all those present are familiar with the bill. I can read it, if necessary, but if you are all familiar with it, it will be inserted in the record without reading.

Senator Allee. That will no doubt be satisfactory.

The bill (introduced by Senator Gallinger December 11, 1906)is as follows:

Be it enacted by, &c.,

"That tuberculosis is hereby declared to be an infectious and communicable disease, dangerous to the public health.
