Statement on Unfunded Federal Mandates Reform Legislation October 5, 1994 I want to commend Chairman John Conyers and the House Government Operations Committee for adopting today the bipartisan ``Federal Mandate Relief for State and Local Government Act of 1994'' (H.R. 5128). This legislation, which I strongly support, will control the growth of Federal unfunded mandates and restore balance to the intergovernmental partnership between the Federal Government and State, local, and tribal governments. I encourage the House of Representatives to act on this legislation expeditiously.
