We believe the flexibility permitted by this provision in the Senate bill would be advantageous to the States and would better promote the purposes of the bill.

This, Mr. Chairman, concludes our testimony in support of s. 2758, a bill de signed to broaden and improve an existing program which has become a model of effective Federal-State cooperation in the advancement of community health services. On the solid base of the existing programs it would add a five-point plan for constructing the kind of health facilities which our communities most! urgently need, and which they can most efficiently and economically maintain. It is a bill which, we believe, would make a real contribution toward better health care for thousands of our fellow Americans. We therefore urge favorable consideration of the bill by your committee.
