House Speaker Jim Wright (D-Tex.) yesterday supported a Senate-passed resolution that could result in congressional intervention in President Reagan's controversial Persian Gulf policy.

But Wright hinted that the House might delay action on the measure until next year.

The Senate measure would not require congressional action until next year on the administration's policy of putting 11 Kuwaiti oil tankers under the U.S. flag and under the protection of U.S. Navy ships when they are sailing through the gulf.

Wright said he is reluctant to move on the measure until the courts have ruled on a suit, filed by more than 100 House members, seeking to compel Reagan to comply with the War Powers Resolution. The 1973 law would require U.S. forces to be withdrawn from the gulf within 60 days unless Congress declares war or extends the deadline.

"I think any scheduling of action {on the Senate resolution} would be dependent on the judgment of how it affects the court situation," Wright told reporters.

A hearing on the suit in U.S. District Court is scheduled for Nov. 10. The Justice Department told a federal judge Wednesday that if the court decided the War Powers Resolution should be invoked, Iran would get the "wrong message" and the United States might be forced to increase its involvement there.

The administration contends that the War Powers Resolution is unconstitutional, a position that has drawn criticism from legislators but until recently has led to little action by them.

A divided Senate, trying to find a role to play in gulf policy, voted 55 to 44 Wednesday to require the administration to report within 30 days on its military strategy in the gulf.

Thirty days after the report is filed, the Senate would vote on a resolution whose content is undecided. It could contain anything from an order to withdraw all forces to an endorsement of the reflagging and naval escort policy.

However, the Senate measure stops short of invoking the War Powers Resolution because of strong resistance from Senate conservatives.

"As a matter of policy and principle, I do" support the resolution, Wright said.

However, Rep. Stephen J. Solarz (D-N.Y.), a ranking member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, said he is opposed to the Senate resolution, arguing that it "would make matters worse . . . by failing to invoke the war powers act in any way, shape or form."

Solarz introduced a bill yesterday that would simultaneously invoke provisions of the War Powers Resolution and authorize the continued presence of U.S. armed forces in the Persian Gulf for the purpose of escorting American-flagged Kuwaiti ships.

"This bill protects the interests of both Congress and the president," Solarz said. "It would establish the relevance of the War Powers Resolution for the current situation in the gulf, while simultaneously giving the president a strong show of congressional support for the administration's reflagging and escorting policies."

Rep. Tom Lantos (D-Calif.), an early critic of the reflagging policy who cosponsored the bill, said he and other members of Congress have no choice at this point but to unite behind administration efforts in the gulf, in the light of escalating tensions with Iran.

Meanwhile, Sen. Claiborne Pell (D-R.I.), chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, said this week that the committee will begin hearings next week on the longstanding problems with the 1973 War Powers Resolution.

The law, which Reagan contends does not apply to the U.S. presence in the Persian Gulf, requires the president to report to Congress within 48 hours after deployment of U.S. forces.

Senate Majority Leader Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.) said he is working on a proposal to revise the War Powers Resolution to make it workable.
