Agent Orange Study Commission - RG 580 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Agent Orange Study Commission - RG 580


Historical Note: The Agent Orange Study Commission was created by the General Assembly in 1983 to study the possible effects of Agent Orange and other defoliants on Vietnam era veterans. It also was to serve as a clearinghouse of compiled data relating to these defoliants and their after effects. The commission was composed of two House members appointed by the Speaker, two House members appointed by the minority leader, two Senate members appointed by the president pro tempore, two Senate members appointed by the minority leader, and five members appointed by the Governor, three of whom were to be Vietnam era veterans. The Department of Veterans' Affairs was to assist the commission in its work. It was to report to the General Assembly two years after its formation (P.A. 83-994, pp. 6675-6676). The Legislative Commission Reorganization Act of 1984 abolished the commission (P.A. 83-1257, p. 1174).
