Automatic Couplers and Power Brakes: Hearing Before the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce of the House of Representatives (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Automatic Couplers and Power Brakes: Hearing Before the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce of the House of Representatives
Mr. Storer. If it is not only constitutional but feasible for Congress to compel the use of a certain kind of car-coupler for the benefit and safety of the employés, would, in your judgment as a railroad man, Congress have the same power to interfere and regulate the method of heating cars, so as to prevent passengers from being burned up?
Mr. Haines. I should think what would be a good reason in one case would be good in the other. In one case it is the protection of the lives and limbs of employés and in the other the protection of the pub lic generally.
