VEGETABLE INK PRINTING

Pub. L. 103-348, Oct. 6, 1994, 108 Stat. 3133, provided that:

"SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

"This Act may be cited as the 'Vegetable Ink Printing Act of

1994'."

"SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.

"(a) Findings. - The Congress finds the following:

"(1) More than 95 percent of Federal printing involving

documents or publications is performed using lithographic inks.

"(2) Various types of oil, including petroleum and vegetable

oil, are used in lithographic ink.

"(3) Increasing the amount of vegetable oil used in a

lithographic ink would -

"(A) help reduce the Nation's use of nonrenewable energy

resources;

"(B) result in the use of products that are less damaging to

the environment;

"(C) result in a reduction of volatile organic compound

emissions; and

"(D) increase the use of renewable agricultural products.

"(4) The technology exists to use vegetable oil in lithographic

ink and, in some applications, to use lithographic ink that uses

no petroleum distillates in the liquid portion of the ink.

"(5) Some lithographic inks have contained vegetable oils for

many years; other lithographic inks have more recently begun to

use vegetable oil.

"(6) According to the Government Printing Office, using

vegetable oil-based ink appears to add little if any additional

cost to Government printing.

"(7) Use of vegetable oil-based ink in Federal Government

printing should further develop -

"(A) the commercial viability of vegetable oil-based ink,

which could result in demand, for domestic use alone, for

2,500,000,000 pounds of vegetable crops or 500,000,000 pounds

of vegetable oil; and

"(B) a product that could help the United States retain or

enlarge its share of the world market for vegetable oil-ink.

"(b) Purpose. - The purpose of this Act is to require that all

lithographic printing using ink containing oil that is performed or

procured by a Federal agency shall use ink containing the maximum

amounts of vegetable oil and materials derived from other renewable

resources that -

"(1) are technologically feasible, and

"(2) result in printing costs that are competitive with

printing using petroleum-based inks.

"SEC. 3. FEDERAL PRINTING REQUIREMENTS.

"(a) General Rule. - Notwithstanding any other law, and except as

provided in subsection (b), a Federal agency may not perform or

procure lithographic printing that uses ink containing oil if the

ink contains less than the following percentage of vegetable oil:

"(1) In the case of news ink, 40 percent.

"(2) In the case of sheet-fed ink, 20 percent.

"(3) In the case of forms ink, 20 percent.

"(4) In the case of heat-set ink, 10 percent.

"(b) Exceptions. -

"(1) Exceptions. - Subsection (a) shall not apply to

lithographic printing performed or procured by a Federal agency,

if -

"(A) the head of the agency determines, after consultation

with the Public Printer and within the 3-year period ending on

the date of the commencement of the printing or the date of

that procurement, respectively, that vegetable oil-based ink is

not suitable to meet specific, identified requirements of the

agency related to the printing; or

"(B) the Public Printer determines -

"(i) within the 3-month period ending on the date of the

commencement of the printing, in the case of printing of

materials that are printed at intervals of less than 6

months, or

"(ii) before the date of the commencement of the printing,

in the case of printing of materials that are printed at

intervals of 6 months or more;

that the cost of performing the printing using vegetable

oil-based ink is significantly greater than the cost of

performing the printing using other available ink.

"(2) Notice to congress. - Not later than 30 days after making

a determination under paragraph (1)(A), the head of a Federal

agency shall report the determination to the Committee on

Government Operations [now Committee on Government Reform] and

the Committee on House Administration of the House of

Representatives, and the Committee on Rules of the Senate.

"(c) Federal Agency Defined. - In this Act, the term 'Federal

agency' means -

"(1) an executive department, military department, Government

corporation, Government-controlled corporation, or other

establishment in the executive branch of the Government

(including the Executive Office of the President), or any

independent regulatory agency; and

"(2) an establishment or component of the legislative or

judicial branch of the Government."

NATIONAL POLICY ON PERMANENT PAPERS

Pub. L. 101-423, Oct. 12, 1990, 104 Stat. 912, provided that:

"Whereas it is now widely recognized and scientifically

demonstrated that the acidic papers commonly used for more than a

century in documents, books, and other publications are

self-destructing and will continue to self destruct;

"Whereas Americans are facing the prospect of continuing to lose

national, historical, scientific, and scholarly records,

including government records, faster than salvage efforts can be

mounted despite the dedicated efforts of many libraries,

archives, and agencies, such as the Library of Congress and the

National Archives and Records Administration;

"Whereas nationwide hundreds of millions of dollars will have to be

spent by the Federal, State, and local governments and private

institutions to salvage the most essential books and other

materials in the libraries and archives of government, academic,

and private institutions;

"Whereas paper manufacturers can produce a sufficient supply of

acid free permanent papers with a life of several hundred years,

at prices competitive with acid papers, if publishers would

specify the use of such papers, and some publishers and many

university presses are already publishing on acid free permanent

papers;

"Whereas most Government agencies do not require the use of acid

free permanent papers for appropriate Federal records and

publications;

"Whereas librarians, publishers, and other professional groups have

urged the use of acid free permanent papers;

"Whereas even when books are printed on acid free permanent paper

this fact is often not made known to libraries by notations in

the book or by notations in standard bibliographic listings; and

"Whereas there is an urgent need to prevent the continuance of the

acid paper problem in the future: Now, therefore, be it

"Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the

United States of America in Congress assembled,

"Section 1. It is the policy of the United States that Federal

records, books, and publications of enduring value be produced on

acid free permanent papers.

"Sec. 2. The Congress of the United States urgently recommends

that -

"(1) Federal agencies require the use of acid free permanent

papers for publications of enduring value produced by the

Government Printing Office or produced by Federal grant or

contract, using the specifications for such paper established by

the Joint Committee on Printing;

"(2) Federal agencies require the use of archival quality acid

free papers for permanently valuable Federal records and confer

with the National Archives and Records Administration on the

requirements for paper quality;

"(3) American publishers and State and local governments use

acid free permanent papers for publications of enduring value, in

voluntary compliance with the American National Standard;

"(4) all publishers, private and governmental, prominently note

the use of acid free permanent paper in books, advertisements,

catalogs, and standard bibliographic listings; and

"(5) the Secretary of State, Librarian of Congress, Archivist

of the United States, and other Federal officials make known the

national policy regarding acid free permanent papers to foreign

governments and appropriate international agencies since the acid

paper problem is worldwide and essential foreign materials being

imported by our libraries are printed on acid papers.

"Sec. 3. The Librarian of Congress, the Archivist of the United

States, and the Public Printer shall jointly monitor the Federal

Government's progress in implementing the national policy declared

in section 1 regarding acid free permanent papers and shall report

to the Congress regarding such progress on December 31, 1991,

December 31, 1993, and December 31, 1995. In carrying out the

monitoring and reporting functions under this section, the

Librarian of Congress, the Archivist of the United States, and the

Public Printer may consult with the National Endowment for the

Humanities, National Agricultural Library, National Library of

Medicine, other Federal and State agencies, international

organizations, private publishers, paper manufacturers, and other

organizations with an interest in preservation of books and

historical papers."
