This is a summary of recent congressional actions not reported elsewhere in The Post. HOUSE
The House approved the fiscal 1986 NASA authorization after voting, 369 to 36, to freeze spending at last year's level of $7.5 billion. The action cut about $376 million from the total requested by the administration and approved by the Science and Technology Committee. The House voted, 206 to 201, to increase from $71 million to $105 million the fees that NASA can charge a commercial customer for use of a space-shuttle flight. The vote on final passage was 395 to 3. (HR1714; April 3) Wilderness Areas
The House voted, 342 to 69, to name part of the Point Reyes National Seashore in California for the late representative Phillip Burton (D-Calif.), one of the biggest supporters of legislation to protect wilderness areas. The National Park Service has objected to the bill because it prefers that parks be dedicated to members of Congress, rather than named after them. By voice vote, the House also passed legislation adding 40 acres that contain a valuable archaeological site to the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. (HR1373, HR1185; April 2) Rights of Disabled
An Education and Labor subcommittee approved, by voice vote, legislation designed to overturn a Supreme Court decision that said parents of disabled children who successfully sue under the Education for All Handicapped Children Act are not entitled to have their attorneys' fees paid. The court said Congress did not authorize money for attorneys' fees because it would add to the expenses that states have had to bear to provide education for handicapped children. But the bill's backers say the measure is needed to ensure that public schools adequately serve the disabled. Full committee action is expected April 16. (HR1523; April 3) Petroleum Reserve
An Energy subcommittee approved legislation authorizing the continued filling of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve through 1989, but the real fight over the administration's request for a moratorium will come in the appropriations panels.
The administration wants to stop filling the reserve at the end of fiscal 1985, when it is expected to contain 489 million barrels. That would save about $1.6 billion in fiscal 1986.
Current plans call for the reserve to reach about 750 million barrels of oil by 1990. The panel also approved a bill directing the Energy Department to hold a test sale of 1.1 million barrels of oil from the reserve. (HR1699, HR1698; April 4) National Science Foundation
The Science and Technology Committee approved a $1.6 billion budget for the National Science Foundation for fiscal 1986, virtually the same as the administration's request and $100 million more than last year's budget.
The panel authorized nearly $1.4 billion for basic research and related activities, an increase of about $1 million over last year. International scientific cooperation programs were cut 14 percent, but many of those programs will be taken over by other federal research organizations. (HR1210; April 3) SENATE State Department Funds
The Foreign Relations Committee approved a $2.79 billion authorization for the State Department, about $108 million below the Reagan administration's request. Much of the reduction came from freezing most salaries and administrative expenses.
The committee also cut $3 million from the $142 million request for the Board for International Broadcasting and $138 million from the request for the U.S. Information Agency, approving $835 million for that agency. (No bill number yet; April 2)
