Document Type



The original tape has been copied onto a surrogate cassette tape and digitized into high-quality mp3 format. The duplicate cassette copy contains all the material recorded on the originals which may include extraneous content such as advertisements, public service announcements, background noise, and background voices that were inadvertently recorded when the tape machine was left on. The mp3 file was edited so that only the subject matter, as indicated on the title, was retained.


The recording features Senator Chafee giving statements at a senate hearing regarding Japanese automobile imports. Subjects include the debate over whether or not to increase tariffs on Japanese auto goods in order to protect Ameerican industries.
