"S.2202, A Bill to promote the general welfare, national interest, and foreign policy of the United States," February 26, 1948

National Archives and Records Administration, Records of the U.S. Senate

Steering the Economic Cooperation Act through Congress was a bipartisan effort. The bill was jointly introduced by Arthur Vandenberg of Michigan, Republican chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, and Senator Tom Connelly of Texas, the senior Democrat on the Committee. The support of Vandenberg, a former isolationist, was especially crucial to seeing the Marshall Plan through the Republican-controlled Senate.
