HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

In connection with its maritime police, promoting safety of life

and property at sea, and aiding navigation functions, the Coast

Guard frequently finds it advisable to utilize the services of

other agencies and correlatively, frequently finds its facilities

useful to other agencies. This high degree of cooperation, a

natural attribute of a producing and servicing agency, is important

not only because it greatly promotes the quantity and quality of

the services performed, but because the concentration of these

functions in one agency results in savings to the Government of

man-power, funds, and equipment. In the belief that legislative

recognition of and specific power to continue this needed

cooperation are desirable, Chapter 7 of this title contains a group

of sections on cooperation with designated agencies. This is not

meant to be a complete listing of cooperating agencies, but rather

the designation of the principal ones. In addition, the first

section of the chapter deals with availability of Coast Guard

personnel and facilities to other agencies and the availability of

other agency personnel and facilities to the Coast Guard. 81st

Congress, House Report No. 557.

-STATUTE-

(a) The Coast Guard may, when so requested by proper authority,

utilize its personnel and facilities (including members of the

Auxiliary and facilities governed under chapter 23) to assist any

Federal agency, State, Territory, possession, or political

subdivision thereof, or the District of Columbia, to perform any

activity for which such personnel and facilities are especially

qualified. The Commandant may prescribe conditions, including

reimbursement, under which personnel and facilities may be provided

under this subsection.

(b) The Coast Guard, with the consent of the head of the agency

concerned, may avail itself of such officers and employees, advice,

information, and facilities of any Federal agency, State,

Territory, possession, or political subdivision thereof, or the

District of Columbia as may be helpful in the performance of its

duties. In connection with the utilization of personal services of

employees of state or local governments, the Coast Guard may make

payments for necessary traveling and per diem expenses as

prescribed for Federal employees by the standardized Government

travel regulations.

756 (Mar. 3, 1915, ch. 81, Sec. 6, 38 Stat. 928), and authorizes

the Coast Guard to use its personnel and facilities to assist other

Government agencies when requested and, correlatively, authorizes

the Coast Guard to utilize the personnel and facilities of other

agencies. It is believed desirable to have this authority spelled

out by statute because in times of emergency, for example floods,

it sometimes becomes most advantageous to cooperate in this manner.

-STATUTE-

property at sea, other than radio communication.

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

Because of the numerous situations in which it is necessary for

the Coast Guard to deal with foreign governments, particularly in

the field of safety of life and property at sea, the Coast Guard

and the State Department agree that a provision such as this is

desirable.

The international character of many Coast Guard functions makes

it more and more necessary for the Service to be an initiating or

participating agency in international collaboration. Examples of

international meetings concerned with matters affecting the Coast

Guard include those which dealt with the International Rules of the

Road, international load lines, the International Code of Signals,

safety at sea, and international telecommunications. It is highly

desirable that there be a clear-cut legislative expression of Coast

Guard cooperation with the State Department on proposed

international conferences dealing with various phases of Coast

Guard activities, such as aids to navigation, life-saving

equipment, navigation and communication equipment other than radio

communication, regulation of dangerous cargoes, international rules

of the road, safety requirements and equipment of transoceanic

aircraft and vessels, and safe manning standards and efficiency of

personnel employed on transoceanic aircraft and vessels.

Provisions for similar relationship between the Civil Aeronautical

Board and the State Department appear in the act of June 23, 1938,

as amended, 52 Stat. 984 (title 49, U.S.C., 1946 ed., Sec. 425(c),

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

This section outlines the sphere of cooperation between the

Weather Bureau and the Coast Guard. It would not permit any

cooperation that has not been carried on in the past.

Although the Coast Guard has always cooperated closely with the

Weather Bureau, positive recognition of this has never appeared in

the statutes. In its patrol, its aiding navigation, and its life

saving activities, the Coast Guard finds it important to make,

receive and transmit weather observations and measurements.

Furthermore, with the advent of war, weather reporting,

particularly mid-Atlantic weather patrol work, assumed increasing

importance, and this extensive weather station manning in

cooperation with the Weather Bureau must be provided for in the

postwar period. This section providing for such close cooperation

with the Weather Bureau in weather reporting would crystallize the

cooperative practices of the two agencies as they have operated for

years. 81st Congress, House Report No. 557.

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

Derived from title 34, U.S.C., 1946 ed., Sec. 441a (May 19, 1926,

ch. 334, 44 Stat. 565; May 14, 1935, ch. 109, 49 Stat. 218; Oct. 1,

F.R. 7517, 60 Stat. 1352).

Experience has indicated that it will be advantageous for the

Government to include the Coast Guard along with the other armed

forces for the purpose of detailing personnel for service with

foreign governments.

It seems probable that the increased collaboration with foreign

governments after the war and the vital nature of the Coast Guard's

activities in relation to such collaboration will result in

requests from time to time by foreign governments for assistance

which the Coast Guard is in the best position to render. This

section, which confers broad authority in the President to detail

Coast Guard officers and enlisted men to assist foreign

governments, is patterned after the act of October 1, 1942, 56

Stat. 763 (title 34, U.S.C., 1946 ed., Sec. 441-a), which

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

Experience since the war has indicated the necessity for making

provision for the assignment of Coast Guard officers to diplomatic

missions in those foreign countries which are extensively engaged

in maritime commerce with the United States. This is largely the

result of duties in connection with inspection of merchant vessels.

This section authorizes the designation, with the consent of the

State Department, of Coast Guard officers to be officially attached

to diplomatic missions of the United States. Although Coast Guard

advice on Coast Guard matters is always available to our diplomatic

missions, in those locations where such advice and information are

frequently sought, it is felt that the most effective utilization

of Coast Guard services would be achieved by having Coast Guard

officers attached to such missions. Provision for customs officers

to be attached to diplomatic missions is contained in the act of

March 4, 1923, as amended, 42 Stat. 1453 (title 19, U.S.C., 1946

ed., Sec. 6). Before the transfer in 1939 of the Foreign

Agriculture Service to the State Department, representatives of the

Bureau of Agricultural Economics of the Department of Agriculture

stationed abroad were agricultural attacheAE1s. Act of June 5,

1930, 46 Stat. 498 (title 7, U.S.C., 1946 ed., Sec. 542(a)). 81st

Congress, House Report No. 557.
