H.R. 7329, June 27, 1963

Representative William Tuck (D-VA) proposed this bill on June 27, two months before the March. The bill's ambiguous language about "conduct which would tend to incite a riot" would have allowed the arrest of these "outsiders" as they crossed state lines to organize demonstrations. H.R. 7329 was referred to the House Judiciary Committee, and was never reported on.
