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

*Spending Bill

By voice votes, the House and Senate approved and sent to President Reagan a conference report on a $11.9 billion spending bill for the Commerce, State and Justice departments and the federal judiciary. The measure sets aside$2.1 billion for Commerce,$3.9 billion for Justice, $2.5 billion for State, and $1.1 billion for the federal judiciary. The funding level in the report was slightly less than the amounts passed by the Senate and House. The administration has asked for $11.6 billion. (HR2965, Dec. 5, Dec. 6) HOUSE

*Fair Debt Practices

By voice vote, the House approved and sent to the Senate a measure that would bring lawyers who work principally as debt collectors under the provisions of the Fair Debt Practices Act. The act prohibits the use of abusive, deceptive and unfair debt collection practices. (HR237, Dec. 2)

*Vessel Load Lines

The House, by voice vote, approved a measure that would combine domestic and foreign load line requirements into a uniform system. Load lines are the marks on the sides of vessels used to insure that they are not overloaded to the point that they are unstable. Under current laws, two different sets of load lines apply to U.S. vessels: one for those operating in domestic waters, the other to U.S. ships in foreign waters and for foreign vessels operating in U.S. waters. The bill authorizes the Transportation Department to establish a uniform set of load line requirements for both U.S. and foreign vessels. Certain types of vessels would be eliminated from the requirements, including military vessels, recreational vessels, fishing vessels and domestic fish-processing vessels smaller than 5,000 gross tons that were constructed before 1974. The measure also authorizes the Transportation Department to set user fees for direct services provided to vessels for issuing load line certificates and for making tonnage measurements. (HR1362, Dec. 2)

*Titanic Memorial

Seventy-three years after it struck an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic, the luxury liner Titanic is on its way to becoming a maritime memorial. The House, by voice vote, approved a bill to designate the Titanic a memorial. It also would direct the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the State Department to develop guidelines with other nations for research, exploration and possible salvage of the ship. In September, an American-French expedition located the liner, which sank in April 1912 with the loss of 1,503 lives. (HR3272, Dec. 2)

*Fish and Wildlife

By voice vote, the House passed a measure that would grant the Interior and Commerce Departments greater flexibility to negotiate plans with state and local governments and private groups to reduce damage to wildlife habitats. Supporters say the measure is designed to set up a system for the follow-up of recommendations and for long-term damage mitigation planning, which they say the Fish and Wildlife Act does not address. The measure would require federal agencies to list water projects on which they consulted with Interior's Fish and Wildlife Services and Commerce's National Marine Fisheries Service. From that list, federal agencies would select a sample and determine how recommendations were incorporated. Further, the bill would authorize the FWS and the NMFS to participate with federal, state and local governments, as well as private groups, to develop long-term fish and wildlife conservation plans in connection with large-scale water projects. The measure also authorizes contractural agreements between those parties to mitigate damage to fish and wildlife habitats. The administration opposes the bill. (HR2704, Dec. 2)
