--------- HOUSE VOTES ---------

ROMANIA AND FAMILY PLANNING

By a vote of 224 for and 198 against, the House limited the way $1.5 million for family planning in Romania can be handled. The vote was a victory for antiabortion forces. It occurred as the House sent a $15.6 billion fiscal 1991 foreign aid bill (HR 5114) to the Senate. The amendment kept the $1.5 million from being administered by either the Planned Parenthood Federation or the U.N. Fund for Population Activities. Critics say those groups advocate abortion among other population control options. Foes of the amendment said the point was moot because the bill already kept any of the Romanian aid from being spent on abortions. A yes vote supported the antiabortion position on administering U.S. family planning aid in Romania.

AID TO CAMBODIA

By a vote of 260 for and 163 against, the House adopted an administration-backed amendment to provide $7 million in non-lethal aid to forces fighting the communist, pro-Vietnam government of Cambodia. The aid was controversial because the insurgents include Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge, notorious for killing millions of Cambodians while ruling the country between 1975 and 1978. A yes vote was to send $7 million to anti-government forces in Cambodia.

SCENIC RIVERS ISSUE

By a vote of 93 for and 323 against, the House refused to prohibit the federal government from using eminent domain as it includes Nebraska's Niobrara River in the Wild and Scenic Rivers System. Several dozen property owners could have their land condemned under a bill (S 28) to put 76 miles of the river into the federal preservation system. The bill was sent to conference with the Senate. A yes vote was to keep the government from condemning land to protect the Niobrara River.

--------- SENATE VOTES ---------

FLAG AMENDMENT

By a vote of 58 for and 42 against, the Senate fell short of the two-thirds majority required for passage of a constitutional amendment to prevent physical desecration of the American flag. The vote was symbolic, because the proposed change in the Bill of Rights already had been rejected by the House. Constitutional amendments must clear both chambers before going on to state capitals. A yes vote was for the constitutional amendment.

GUN CONTROL

By a vote of 50 for and 48 against, the Senate reaffirmed gun-control language it first approved May 23 during consideration of omnibus anti-crime legislation (S 1970). The provision was backed by the Fraternal Order of Police and opposed by the National Rifle Association. It would make it illegal to import, manufacture or possess nine types of semiautomatic assault rifles and pistols. The crime bill remained in debate. A yes vote supported the gun-control provision.
