---------- HOUSE VOTES --------- AMTRAK VETO

By a vote of 294 for and 123 against, the House achieved the two-thirds majority required to override President Bush's veto of a bill (HR 2364) giving Amtrak the federal subsidy it needs to stay in business. The Senate also would have to reject the veto if the bill is to prevail. A Senate vote was upcoming. The bill authorized an annual average subsidy of $684 million through fiscal 1992 and tightened Interstate Commerce Commission review of railroad takeovers by non-railroad companies. Taxpayers last year covered about 30 percent of the rail passenger agency's budget. Though Bush has long opposed the federal payment, he based his veto on the ICC provision. A yes vote was to fund Amtrak.

TO EASE EXPORT CONTROLS

By a vote of 312 for and 86 against, the House sent to the Senate a bill (HR 4653) making it easier for American companies to get U.S. government clearance to sell certain computers, telecommunications systems and other high technology to countries in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary would be major beneficiaries of this bill to relax Cold War-era restraints on exports. The bill would ease controls based on national security and does not deal with those based on foreign policy. A yes vote supported the bill.

TELECOMMUNICATIONS EXPORTS

By a vote of 348 for and 45 against, the House broadened the range of telecommunications products that could be sold under a bill to liberalize the Export Act of 1949 (above). The amendment would enable American manufacturers to sell entire systems, including service, latitude they say they need to compete with Germany and Japan for customers in emerging democracies. A yes vote was to broaden the export of telecommunications products to certain countries now shedding communist rule. MARYLAND

--------- SENATE VOTES ---------- CRIME BILL DEBATE

By a vote of 57 for and 37 against, the Senate fell short of the 60 votes needed to limit debate on a major anti-crime bill that had been on the floor since May 21. This failure to invoke cloture threatened the bill. It was attributed mainly to lobbying by the National Rifle Association, which opposes a provision outlawing certain semiautomatic assault weapons. But a few votes against ending debate were from liberals concerned that the bill would expand the federal death penalty. Senate leaders were trying to salvage the bill. A yes vote was to move to final passage of the crime bill.

Warner..........X AIDS AND FOOD HANDLING

By a vote of 40 for and 53 against, the Senate failed to table language aimed at keeping AIDS-infected people out of food-handling positions. The vote endorsed a House-passed proposal making it legal for employers to transfer workers infected with a communicable disease from food-handling jobs at no loss of pay. It instructed Senate conferees on disability rights legislation (HR 2273) to accept the House proposal. A yes vote opposed the House position on food handling by those with communicable diseases.
