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

The Senate Finance Committee and a House Ways and Means subcommittee rejected the administration's proposed personnel cuts in the U.S. Customs Service for fiscal 1986. The Finance panel approved a $754 million authorization, which would retain 887 Customs employes that the administration wanted to eliminate. The Ways and Means subcommittee approved a $774 million authorization, which would add 800 jobs to Customs. Both panels also approved a $13.6 million authorization for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative in fiscal 1986, $2.2 million more than the administration had requested. (No bill number yet; May 7) HOUSE U.S.-Israel Trade

The House approved, 422 to 0, an agreement between the United States and Israel that would remove all trade barriers over the next 10 years. The two nations signed the pact April 22, and Congress has 60 days in which to approve it. It is the first time the United States and another nation have agreed to eliminate all trade barriers. The Senate Finance Committee has approved the measure. (HR2268; May 7) Veterans' Health Care

The Veterans Affairs Committee approved legislation that would make it easier for older veterans to be treated in community nursing homes. The measure is designed to provide an alternative to more costly care in Veterans Administration hospitals. The bill also would increase the number of VA Geriatric Research Education and Clinic Centers from 15 to 25 in fiscal 1986. The bill also would authorize a program of grants to state homes for veterans that would provide up to $40 million in fiscal 1986, $50 million in 1987 and $60 million in 1988. (HR505; May 7) School Lunch Money

The Education and Labor Committee voted to add $60 million to the federal school-lunch and -breakfast programs, which the Reagan administration had proposed cutting by $700 million. The extra money is intended to provide an extra six cents for each school breakfast. The panel also approved a $1.6 billion authorization for the Women, Infants and Children feeding program for fiscal 1986, a $100 million increase over this year. (HR7; May 7) Medicare Fraud

The Energy and Commerce Committee approved legislation that would give the Health and Human Services secretary authority to ban incompetent or unethical physicians from the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Under current law, a physician can be banned only if convicted of specific Medicare or Medicaid program abuses. The bill would allow physicians to be banned for such crimes as patient abuse and fraud. The panel also included provisions from another measure that would let the attorney general revoke a physician's authority to prescribe drugs if the doctor has been banned from the Medicare or Medicaid program. (HR1868; May 9) Orphan Drugs

The Energy Committee approved a bill that would authorize $4 million a year for fiscal 1986-88 for the development of "orphan" drugs. The money is intended to encourage production of drugs that, because they are used to treat rare diseases, are not very profitable for pharmaceutical companies. (HR2290; May 9) Health Institutes

Although a similar measure was vetoed last year, an Energy and Commerce subcommittee approved, 9 to 4, legislation that would establish two new institutes -- one for arthritis, another for nursing -- at the National Institutes of Health. The draft bill, however, specifies no funding level. The panel also approved a $2.4 billion fiscal 1986 authorization for NIH's National Cancer Institute and National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. (No bill number yet; May 7)
