WASHINGTON (t -- A bill
to force the breakup of the na-
tion's 18 largest oil companies
squeezed through the Senate
Judiciary Committee on yes-
tcrday by an 8-7 vote.
Ilowever, Sens. Robert Byrd
(l)-W. Va.) Hugh Scott R-Pa.)
and Charles Mathias (R-Md.)
said they voted with the ma-
jority only to get the bill be-
fore the Senate.
THE BILL would require the
companies to divest themselves
of all but one phase of their
operations - production, trans-
portation, or refining and mar-
Supporters contended at the
committee meeting that this
forced fragmentation of the in-
dustry giants would increase
competition and reduce prices.
But opponents argued the ef-
fect would be to impair effic-
iency, add to costs, raise pric-
es, reduce production and in-
crease dependence on foreign
MATHIAS put a substitute
proposal before the committee
that would not have required
he breakup of the oil com-
panies but imposed on them
what he called "a public trust."
Mathias' substitute was re-
jected, 13-2, with only Byrd
joining Mathias in voting for
it. Opponents argued it would
lead to detailed government
control of the industry.
THE BILL submitted to the
Senate would require the 18
companies to choose whether to
limit their operations to ex-
ploration and production, trans-
portation, or refining - market-
This divesture would have to
be accomplished within five
years, with plans dawn up by
the companies subject to
amendment and approval by
the Federal Trade Commission.
A special divesture court would
be set up to handle litigation
growing out of the legislation.
The bill was approved by a
4-3 vote of the Judiciary Com-
mittee's antitrust unit on April
1. At that time a modificaion
was made to permit refiners to
retain retail outlets they owned
or operate as of Jan. 1, 1976.
