John Dingell's Long View

 

continued

Dingell: It's a place where things were always happening. As a page I saw the House extend the draft by one vote [in 1941. If it had failed], that could have cost us World War II. I saw the declaration of war by the Congress.

I have voted on all kinds of legislation--food and drugs, consumer protection, environmental policies, the Endangered Species Act.

I helped lead the fight to save the auto industry, not once but three or four times. I've worked hard to get civil rights legislation through. I saved millions of acres of land for conservation and recreation. I built the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge. I've reformed the food and drug laws to protect people from unsafe food, sometimes unsafe pharmaceuticals. I wrote the National Environmental Policy Act. I've done a lot of other things that would probably bore the daylights out of you.

Observer: Did you meet President Roosevelt?
