This is a summary of recent congressional actions not reported elsewhere in The Post. SENATE

Wheat Treaty

The Senate, by unanimous vote, ratified an extension of the 1971 International Wheat Agreement. The agreement is composed of two conventions: the Wheat Trade Convention, which serves as an international forum for collecting data on wheat trade and sponsoring discussions on wheat products, and the Food Aid Convention, which commits members to provide minimum annual quantities of food aid (4.4 million metric tons for the United States). (Treaty Doc. 98-5, Oct. 22)

Labor-HHS-Education Bill

The Senate approved, 83 to 15, a $105 billion spending bill for fiscal 1986 for the departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education after agreeing unanimously to eliminate $142 million for family planning from the measure. The agreement came in exchange for assurances from antiabortion members that they would not tie up the spending bill with amendments on that issue. The measure also includes $221 million for research and treatment of AIDS. The measure contains about $5 billion more than the Reagan administration request and and $800 million more than the House version. (HR3424, Oct. 22) HOUSE

Superfund Tax

The Ways and Means Committee, by voice vote, approved legislation to fund the $10 billion Superfund hazardous waste cleanup program. The proposal includes a business tax on goods that would raise an estimated $4.5 billion over five years. Additional funding would come from a $1 billion petroleum tax; a $1.5 billion tax on raw chemicals; a $1.5 billion tax on waste disposal, and $180 million from general revenues. About $500 million would be collected from interest and from government suits against dumpers to recover cleanup costs. An $850 million gasoline tax would be used to clean up leaking underground gasoline storage tanks. The Senate has passed Superfund legislation that includes an .08 percent tax on raw and manufactured products. (HR2817, Oct.23)

Topsoil Preservation

The House rejected a bill that would have authorized $6 million annually to ensure stockpiling and replacement of topsoil on public and some private lands altered by surface-mining and by reclamation and other federal projects. The vote was 225 to 185 in favor of the bill, but a two-thirds margin was required for passage because the measure was brought to the floor under a procedure that limits debate and does not allow amendments. The administration opposed the bill, saying it duplicates existing federal programs. (HR463; Oct. 22)

Lie Detectors

The Education and Labor Committee approved, by voice vote, a measure that would prohibit most private employers from using lie detector tests on current or potential employees except in the investigation of drug theft. Exempted from the bill are federal, state and local governments, and private contractors that perform intelligence-related work for the CIA, FBI, Defense Department and the National Security Agency. Under the proposal, persons who believe they were discriminated against for not taking a lie detector test could seek redress through the Labor Department or private civil action. (HR1524; Oct. 23)

Smokeless Tobacco

By a 16 to 2 vote, an Energy and Commerce subcommittee approved legislation to place warning labels on smokeless tobacco products and ban advertising of those products on television and radio beginning in January. The labels would warn consumers that the product may cause mouth cancer, gum disease and tooth loss and that it contains nicotine and is addictive. (HR3510; Oct. 23)

Student Loans

An Education and Labor subcommittee approved, 13 to 10, legislation to give future college graduates an extra three months before they must begin paying back federally sponsored guaranteed student loans. Students who begin college in 1987 or later would not have to start repayment until nine months after leaving school. The Congressional Budget Office estimated that the extended grace period would cost the government $182 million over five years. (Bill unnumbered; Oct. 24)

Import Duties

By voice vote, the Ways and Means trade subcommittee approved legislation that would allow the federal government to impose countervailing import duties on foreign products that benefit from government subsidies. The proposal is aimed primarily at products of subsidized natural resources, such as timber, natural gas and petroleum. (HR2451; Oct. 24)
