Note: This is the text of identical letters addressed to Thomas P. O'Neill, Jr., Speaker of the House of Representatives, and Walter F. Mondale, President of the Senate.
The report is entitled "Federal Personal Data Systems Subject to the Privacy Act of 1974—Third Annual Report of the President, Calendar Year 1977" (39 pages plus appendices).
