This is an April 1958 proposal by the President’s Advisory Committee on Government Organization (chaired by Nelson Rockefeller) to create a new U.S. Department of Transportation. The proposal was assembled in consultation with the Bureau of the Budget but was only a broad outline. A more detailed and formal proposal was submitted in fall 1959.
