This is a summary of recent congressional actions not reported elsewhere in The Post. BOTH HOUSES Drinking Water

The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee approved bills that would extend the Safe Drinking Water Act. Both bills include an administration-opposed provision that would require the Environmental Protection Agency to set limits on certain drinking water contaminants. The Senate version would authorize $151 million for fiscal 1986 and $131 million annually through fiscal 1990. The House subcommittee approved a $129 million authorization for fiscal 1986 and 1987 and $133 million for fiscal 1988 and 1989. The bill originally called for $216 million a year through fiscal 1989. (S124, HR1650; May 2) Nuclear Regulation

The environment committee added $8 million to the administration's fiscal 1986 request for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to offset a proposed 5 percent pay cut for federal workers. As approved by the panel, the $437 million authorization would be $12 million less than the current budget. On the day before, the House Interior and Insular Affairs Committee approved a $429 million authorization, but ordered the NRC to transfer $16 million of the budget from research to safety programs. (S895; May 2/HR1711; May 1) SENATE Conrail Sale Approved

The Commerce Committee approved, 12 to 5, legislation that would allow the government to sell its 85 percent share of the Conrail freight railroad system to Norfolk Southern Corp. for $1.2 billion. The Senate is expected to approve the sale, but the bill faces a tougher time in the House. (S638; April 30) HOUSE Medicare Fraud

The Ways and Means Committee approved legislation that would prohibit doctors whose licenses have been suspended, or who have violated Medicare and Medicaid regulations, from participating in the programs. Under current law, the government can exclude doctors only when they have been convicted of criminal acts involving the programs or when a civil monetary penalty has been imposed. Full House action is expected this week. (HR 1868; May 2) Export-Import Bank

By voice vote, the Banking, Finance and Urban Affairs Committee agreed to retain the Ex-Im Bank's direct loan program. The administration wanted to eliminate the program for the bank, which arranges loans for foreign buyers of U.S. goods. The panel authorized up to $2.4 billion in direct loans for fiscal 1986; the loan program received $3.8 billion last year. (HR1787; May 1) Coastal Zones, Wetlands

The Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee approved, by voice vote, legislation that would reauthorize, at reduced levels, the Coastal Zone Management Act, under which grants are made to states for coastline protection programs. The panel did not attempt to add language to reverse a Supreme Court decision that gave states less control over offshore oil and gas drilling. The six-year measure would reduce the annual authorization from $48 million to $40 million in 1986, then reduce that to $35 million a year by 1989. The panel also approved legislation that would authorize up to $100 million a year for 10 years to protect and expand the nation's wetlands. (HR2121, HR1203; May 1) U.S.-Israel Trade

The Ways and Means Committee approved, by voice vote, an agreement between the United States and Israel that would eliminate their trade barriers over the next 10 years. The two nations signed the agreement April 22. A vote on the House floor is likely Tuesday; the Senate Finance Committee is expected to consider the agreement later this week. (HR2268; May 2) Veterans, Housing Funds

An Appropriations subcommittee added $300 million to the Veterans Administration's fiscal 1985 budget for medical care, readjustment programs and pension benefits. In other action on fiscal 1985 supplemental funds, the panel cut $75 million from funds for Housing and Urban Development Department housing subsidies. The administration had sought to cut $253 million. The panel also added $15 million to the Environmental Protection Agency budget for hazardous-waste cleanup.(No bill number yet; April 29) Orphan Drugs

An Energy and Commerce subcommittee tentatively approved a measure that would authorize $4 million a year for fiscal 1986-88 for development of "orphan" drugs. The funds are to encourage production of the drugs, which, because they are used to treat rare diseases, are not very profitable for pharmaceutical companies. (No bill number yet). The panel also approved legislation authorizing $405 million in fiscal 1986 for community health centers and $50 million for migrant health programs for fiscal 1986. (HR2242; April 30) Ocean Dumping

Two Merchant Marine and Fisheries subcommittees approved legislation that would reauthorize for two years a program that regulates which waste materials can be dumped at sea. The bill would authorize $8.8 million a year for the program, and would require the Environmental Protection Agency to designate and monitor ocean sites for waste dumping. The panels also approved legislation that would authorize $12 million annually for fiscal 1986-88 for research on the effects of ocean dumping. (HR1957, HR1958; April 30) Embassy Security

An Appropriations subcommittee approved virtually all of the administration's fiscal 1985 supplemental request of $330 million for the State Department and several other agencies. The bulk of the money, $247 million, would be spent to improve security at U.S. embassies. The panel also transferred approximately $24 million in fiscal 1985 funds for the Board for International Broadcasting and the U.S. Information Agency and appropriated the money for construction of radio facilities in 1985 and 1986.
