National Cancer Act of 1971 and 1977?[edit]

The Paul Rogers biography at Research/America says that he "sponsored or played a major role in enacting major health and environmental legislation such as the National Cancer Act of 1971 and 1977 ....". This Wikipedia article used to say essentially that. Now, certainly there was a National Cancer Act of 1971. However, I have removed the "and 1977", since I can find no evidence–outside of the biography and its mirrors–that any U.S. federal law related to cancer was passed in 1977. Possibly this refers to amendments passed in 1977? Still, I have evidence of 1974 amendments, but not 1977, so maybe the biographies really mean 1974. Hard to tell .... Tugbug 23:31, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
