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

*Military Construction

House and Senate conferees agreed to an $8.5 billion military construction appropriations bill for fiscal 1986 but left to the full membership of both houses a decision on funding for a convocation center at the U.S. Naval Academy. The Senate had requested $8.7 billion for the measure, while the House-passed bill asked for $8.4 billion. The Reagan administration requested $10.3 billion. (HR3327, Nov. 19)

*NASA Authorization

The House and Senate, by voice votes, approved a conference report authorizing $7.6 billion in fiscal 1986 for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The authorization includes $205 million for developing a manned space station, $1.6 billion for the space shuttle, $620 million for physics and astronomy research, $354 million for planetary exploration and $354 million for aeronautical research. The fiscal 1986 NASA authorization is about $220 million below the Reagan administration request and $150 million above last year's figure. (HR1714, Nov. 21) SENATE
